One of my 1A1 (, latest mould) has been re-tasked to a new purpose! I had planned on making one of the two 's that were rented by for comparative against the American M60.

The Leopards were named "Blitzkrieg" and "Barbarossa". Although delivered in , all the tanks in the trials were resprayed in Olive Drab lustreless for a press day.

The trials Leopards were delivered in standard 1A1 configuration with factory side skirts as issued from the factory, hence the change in the skirts.

This is just the "concept" set of side skirts, I'll be making a master mould set soon so that I can cast some extra ones...
