This is another stalled project that I'm tidying up before re-commencing work on it. The base kit is the 1 A5 (new mould) with the turret replaced by a 1 A1A1 turret. I'm going to take the B&V from the 1 A5, add it to a spare Revell 1 A1 that I have and make a 1 A1A4. The PZB will a one from the spares box.

I like the detail of the Peddinghaus turret. It looks like it was made to replace the turret on the old model Revell/Italleri cast turret. So it corrects the inaccurate commanders cupola which has insufficient episcopes around the hatch. So lots of fun in the near future...

  1. No armor expert, but I love what I see, Ian: detailing looks fantastic.
    Looking forward to recommencing!

  2. Details are indeed amazing, Ian @ianfoulk96
    Looking forward to this one.

  3. Looking great so far! I see the Indian Leopard 2A6M CAN by Rye Field Models is coming out soon too

    • Thanks Neill. I didn't know that the Indians were buying the Leopard, that should make for an interesting variant. I've seen that one company (is it RFM?) are going to produce a Leopard 2 with complete interior... that's the modelling budget gone for the 6 months after it's released!

  4. Dear IAN (@ianfoulk96) could You tell me how could I make a series of articles (as You did)? Sorry for bothering You but this sounds to be very useful.

  5. Łukasz it's quite easy. Create your article. When you create the second article that you want to link to your first one there is a drop down menu: At the bottom of the page you will find a drop down menu "Advanced Options". Clicking on that you will get a list. Choose the article you wish to link to, highlight and exit. Click "save changes" and you have linked your article. See images, I hope that they help!
