This is the (very) old mould 1. There is a review of it on the Leopard Club website. Needless to say, it is a tad dated by modern standards!
This was my first attempt at using a pencil for the worn metal effect, I think I did better on the Leopard A4 that I posted recently.
Both of these models can be seen before this treatment in my 1st article Leopard Line Up, so you have a comparison. I hope you like my work.

  1. Unbelievable detail. Looks amazing

    • Thank you Neill. It's an old kit these days and over taken by the new mould Revell Leopards. With a bit of "mix and matching" between the A1 and A5 kits, you could kit bash one of the earlier marks with the B&V armour quite easily.

  2. Still your worn effect is really great here, Ian!
