, it would be great to see you here. I have checked 2 reviews of that kit you've mentioned. Detailing seems to be great but they don't mention the fitting. Here is a review from Leopard Club
. While detailing is great, Border Models didn't care much about the painting schemes. Some are not correct. So the Polish Army doesn't have the 2A6 with the longer L/55 gun but the 2A5 with the shorter L/44 gun. You can go back to page 2 here, where I have posted a photo of a polish Leopard. That german 2A6 in desert camo is pure fiction. The experimental camo scheme of the 2A5 is real. In March 2018 a 2A5 of the Bundeswehr Gefechtsübungszentrum (Combat Training Center) was painted that way for urban operations. There are a few photos in the magazines of Tankograd. What I also find a bit strange is, that on the decal sheet you find decals for a 2A6HEL (Greek Army) but it's nowhere mentioned, not even in the painting intructions ....
I also found a review
in german language. Over here the kit costs something around 55 Euros. Ryan
, thanks for enlisting and welcome to the home of the Leopard. I have updated the list of participants on page 1. I've built that Hobbyboss kit back in 2013 and you can see my efforts here on page 2. Can't remember bigger problems with it. Stephan
, no, I'm sorry. This campaign starts in May not in March and I believe many of us have already a few campaigns running or planned for 2020. So, e.g. I have already enlisted in 4 campaigns next year, 2 in the first half and 2 in the second half. We don't need to put ourselves under pressure. Not with our hobby. If you can wait with your 2A7 until May, it would be great, if you don't want to wait, start right away. It's up to you. Hans-Hermann
, thanks also for that link. Some excellent photos by Ralf Zwilling. So I guess we'll see some of them in the next "Militärfahrzeug" magazine. And you're sure, you don't want to build a Leo 2 with us next year .... ?
