CMC Leopard - 2nd prototype

Recommended Posts

Amodel kit of the 2nd prototype CMC Leopard with homemade vacform canopy as the kit one had a flaw in it that I couldn't remove. Different engines and other minor details to the 1st prototype. Nice kit but very fiddly due to the small size.

Thanks for looking.

I saw this listed on Hannants website and thought that it seemed an odd subject for a kit. I believe that only the prototypes existed and thus would only appeal to a very limited number of modellers.

Thanks John.

 

I never expected to see these as kits and started to scratchbuild them a couple of years ago. As soon as I heard Amodel were doing them I stopped further work and waited for them. Definitely only the two prototypes, but like most of the subjects I build (and you!) that seems to be a big part of the appeal.

Nice model :thumbsup:

 

FWIW, G-BRNM now resides at the Midland Air Museum, Coventry - where I photographed it in 2011........

Cheers Ken. The first prototype G-BKRL is in the Bournemouth museum as well.
