  • modelling minion changed the title to Leopard Tank STGB, in the bunfight again and at 36!

I have a couple of Leopard II kits so I'm in.

On second thoughts it may only be one - I will check sometime when next I am up in my roof.

:giggle:

All that Op. Market Garden GB chat got me thinking, which is rare but always frightening, that I might want to join the Leopard STGB  with a "Panther"-Leo I from the "A Bridge Too Far". It shouldn't be too difficult, if it was not taken too seriously (me? serious?) :wink:

So, please sign me in, Craig! V-P

Always a pleasure to have you in a GB my friend, and I really like the idea of a Leopard that was modified to play a Panther from "A Bridge Too Far", something completely different that I hadn't thought of before.

Consider yourself added to the list.

I'm still in. Despite my change of name, I'm not totally maritime. 

Very glad to hear that you're still aboard Bertie.👍

With the Gepard now in action in Ukraine those who want to build vehicles with small yellow and blue flags on them (and why wouldn't you) can now finish your Gepard in those markings, and hopefully by the time the GB starts, we WILL get through this time, you will be able to build Leopards in the same markings!

I was just thing about this just the other day as I read the piece about them.

 

The question now is, should I preempt this one going through and by one now.................well not that I have ever had an excuse not to buy something! The only real question is whether it'll be the Meng or Takom model!!  :D

I don't think you have ever needed an excuse for another purchase have you mate, you did (eventually) get a Leopard last year in the hopes of this going through last years bunfight so getting a Gepard for this years bunfight would keep with the tradition, and this year we are going to get through!

another GB build?

Depends on the GB I suppose. If the pre 1918 GB gets through…

 

But it fits with my grand plan of recreating my 1/72 WWI tank collection in 1/35 and tbh the price was right too.
