Leopard C2 MEXAS

May 13, 2015 in Armor

Good morning to all
Here is my latest build- a Canadian cat from Afganistan. It`s a Takom 1/35 offering which represents a vehicle freshly shipped to the conflict. I have, however, decided to update it as it was quickly adapted by the troops and added a Legend update and detailing set and stowage. Some major changes were adding an ECM unit, mudguards( in this case just one, as they were prone to falling off) and a cooler unit(this was deliberate mistake i made, as those units were used with thermal shrouds on the tank). Rest were resin and PE replacement tidbits.All in all,i would recomend that Legend set. Painted with Tamiya paints and a large amount of pigments was used( those tanks were even more dustier sometimes, i did not want to overdo it to hide the details).

  3. Thanks!
    The ANA soldier is from the kit, but the head was kinda rubbish, so i used a hornet german senior citizen one, and sculpted the `stache,hair and the hat.
