  1. Leopard 1A5 1:35 Revell The Leopard project started back in the mid 1950s with the goal of producing a modern tank to replace the M47 and M48 tanks which where then in use by the recently reconstituted Bundesehr (German Army). The specification called for a tank weighing no more than 30 tonnes capable of surviving 20mm rapid fire cannon and having a power-to-weight ratio of 30hp per tonne. The tank had to be capable of surviving on a nuclear/chemical contaminated battlefield. Armament was to be the then standard NATO 105mm gun. For this design Mobility was the primary co
  2. With the recent uptake in interest in armour related GB's and STGB's I have been having a think about having one for a topic which I have liked for a long time, namely the Leopard family of AFV's. This family of tanks has been at the top of the AFV game since their entry into service in the late 60's and the newest models are still up there. I would have all versions of the Leopard as eligible for GB, including all of the gun tanks from the Leopard 1 onwards and all of the other vehicles which have used the hull of the Leopard in one form or another such as the Gepard anti-aircraft tank a
  3. The kit by Hobby Boss represents an armed version of the tank, although actually the turret with armament was never installed. Building the test version of the vehicle required some scratch-building: the superstructure, the front-plate with windows, covers for the air outlets from the engine compartment, additional air ventilation behind the superstructure and round holders for attaching the towing cable. The mounting of the antenna also had to be removed. The towing cable produced by Eureka XXL (for the Ferdinand SPG). The tracks w
  4. SLT 50-3 "Elefant" + Leopard 2A4 (03311) 1:72 Revell The huge "Elefant" tank transporter was designed by Faun in the 1970s to meet a requirement for an all-terrain vehicle powerful enough to haul large tanks such as the Leopard. Over 300 have been produced and in the 1990s these massive machines were upgraded to the 50-3 standard represented in this kit. The Leopard 2 was developed in the 1970s as a replacement for the Leopard 1 MBT then in service with the West German Army. Throughout its service life, this highly capable tank has been upgraded throug
  5. Hello, I have a couple of meng tanks to build, starting with this one. Fairly straight forward build, I like the polycaps. The torsion bar suspension was interesting. I'm really not a fan of the slightly rough finish they put on these models, I suppose it's to help the paint grip. Anyway I'm going to sand it off. I also bought a set of tow cables for it. I'm leaving the side skirts off and painting the underside first, them I'll pop the wheels on, glue on the side skirts, and then paint the rest of it. There isn't much of a glue surface so I want a clean bond so the
  6. Leopard C1A1 Canadian MBT (84502) 1/35 HOBBYBOSS via Creative Models In 1978 the Canadian Army selected the Leopard C1 (Leopard 1A3 equivalent) to be its new Main Battle Tank. These would be called the Leopard C1 in service. The majority of these tanks were stationed in Germany with some in Canada for training. Additional armour was then applied during an upgrade phase with six tanks getting an enhanced thick MEXAS (Modular Expansive Armour System) kit made by IBD in Germany added, These MBTs were designated C1A1. These MBTs would serve with Lord Stratcona's Horse in t
  7. Hi Guys. Here's my Leopard built OOB, and painted up in Norwegian colors. Hope you enjoy :) Best regards Rune Haugen
  8. Just for fun and because it's really cheap, I've got a Tamiya 1/35 Leopard 1 (Kampfpanzer Leopard) and the only clue about painting in the instructions, is a mention of Olive Drab. Can anyone tell me more info about colour used to paint Leopard 1's. thanks Mike
  9. As ESCI #8300/8301/Italeri #7031 Leopard 1A2 kits are impossible to find for years I'd like to know your opinion about the (similarly rare, though a bit cheaper) Airfix 1/76 Leopard #02306. Is it really so much smaller and so rubbish that putting it on the shelf among various Modelcollectl and Trumpeter 1/72 cold war tanks would make whole collection looking odd? Same question applies to the Airfix #01320 FV101 Scorpion as the ACE #72417 is also unobtainable for some time already. Would the Airfix (called 1:76) Scorpion really be too small and ostentatiously primitive when put along
  10. The Leopard 1 and Leopard 2 From Cold War To Modern Day ISBN : 9788395157523 Kagero via Casemate UK The Leopard 1 project was designed to replace the German Army's reliance on us Built tanks following its reformation. Originally a Joint programme with the French who were later dropped the Leopard 1 would enter into service in 1965 with many design changes following. Over 6500 tanks and utility versions were built and supplied to many different European nations, and further afield. The German Army would retire its Leopard 1s in 2003, though some serve to t

    So, when will we see a kit in 1/72 or 1/35 scale?
  15. This is my finished build of the Faun Tank Transporter and Leopard 2 A5 that many have followed in the WIP section. It is pretty much 'out of the box' with just a few mods to give it some atmosphere. I hope you enjoy and thanks for looking. More photo's available HERE
  16. For those who followed this build here now comes the final pictures before the Leopard is put onto the Faun Transporter. This is my first attempt at weathering and I think I have a lot to learn, but I think I may have the basics ready for my next build. Hope you enjoy. More pictures HERE
  17. Hi For those who have followed the build of my Faun Tank Transporter here this is the chosen tank kit which I hope to use with the Faun. I have also bought the photo etch kit which is really for the Tamiya build but it seems to all match up with the Revell kit. I have made a small start cutting out some openings:
  18. Leopard 2A7 German Main Battle Tank 1/35 Meng Models Like many modern weapons system the Leopard 2A7 is not a brand new system but a continuing development of the Leopard 2 family. These are converted ex Dutch A6NL tanks. Using lessons learnt for the Peace support programme, and combat operations in Afghanistan. While retaining the same 120mm smooth bore gun of the earlier variants the 2A7 is able to fire the latest programmable High explosive rounds. The tanks armour has been upgraded with modular armour with frontal protection being improved as well with passive armour an
  19. Built this for the 80s GB that's been going on for a while now. The kit was relatively easy to put together except for the applique armour panels on the turret as they had no guides to assist in placement. It was painted with Gunze acrylics and weathered with oils, enamels and pigments. Hope you enjoy the photos. Mark
  20. Leopard 2A4M CAN (Canada) 1:35 HobbyBoss The Leopard 2A4 models were the most widespread of the Leopard 2 family to be built. Featuring an all digital fire control system, and an improved turret. Following the end of the cold war the Dutch and German Armies had large stocks of these tanks which were now not needed. The 2A4M CAN is an upgraded Tank purchased by Canada from Holland. The Tank was upgraded for use in Afghanistan where the Canadians have played an important, if often overlooked part of NATO operations in the region. It was originally planed to upgrade these tanks with the lon
  21. Hi Guys Here is a Leopard 2A4 NL that is just finished. It's the 1/35 Revell kit with different tracks (Bronco). The netting is made from some bandage soaked in wood glue and painted after drying. Decals are from various decal sheets. Here are the pictures Cheers,

  24. Leopard 2A5/A5NL 1:35 Revell The Leopard 2 was developed in the 1970s as a replacement for the Leopard 1 MBT then in service with the West German Army. Throughout its service life, this highly capable tank has been upgraded through A1, A2, A3, A4, A5 and A6 variants. The most modern variants, such as the A5 presented here, are easily distinguished from earlier versions as they feature heavily sloped armour on the turrets. The A5 was the last variant to feature the short barrelled, but still highly effective, Rheinmetall L44 gun. The Kit This kit is a re-boxing which dates back to 2012.
  25. Hello fellow modelers! I have completed the Revell's 1/35 Leopard 2A6/A6M. It was a wonderful build and Revell can be really proud of this kit. Everything was a perfect fit, except a few minor detalis. The whole WIP can be found here: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234979652-135-revell-leopard-2a6-help-needed/. Built OBB, except for the markings and the tow rope which were a disaster and were replaced. I decided to paint my tank in finnish colours with finnish markings. I know Finalnd does not have this version of the tank though. For the weathering I used artists oils a
