Krauss-Maffei Wegmann Kampfpanzer Leopard 1A5

Hi all, This is the Takom kit of the Leopard 1A5 in Bundeswehr service. The kit was an easy build, though it was a strange choice to not include any placement nubs, dimples or markings for the mounting bosses for the skirt armor around the [...]


LEO 1A5 REVELL 1/35 Colours: Gunze Varnish: Galleria New molds kit with no fitting problems. Comes out easily for a Leo1a5.

1/35 Border Models Leopard 2a6, "somewhere" in Eastern Europe

Meng Leopard C2 more progress

Trying New Techniques On Tamiya Leopard A3/A4

I decided to try out a few new (to me at least) techniques. I'm trying to get a metallic sheen to weathered parts of the tank and equipment. I've not done this using a pencil before and I think it's far more controllable than just straight [...]

Unfinished Business – Finishing Off the Belgian Leopard

A few days ago I was sorting through my Leopard stuff and came across a few items of etch and resin. I then realised that they were from my Legend Belgian Leopard conversion. To my horror there was still quite a lot to be done, which I had [...]
