Nigel, thanks for your support and welcome to our future campaign! I was happy to read your posting and have updated the list of campaigners on page 1. Getting another Leo is always a good idea. The famous saying about Spitfires and Bf 109 is also valid here "You just can't have enough Leos!" So far I have 5 built (2 x Leo 2, 3 x Leo 1) and another 7 in stash (5 x Leo 2, 2 x Leo 1). I think about buying that Border 2A5/A6 kit.

Johannan, thanks for sharing the photos of your friends 2SG. Great work! Must have been a lot of extra work but it was worth it. I'm also fascinated by that w.i.p. photo of the "Leguan" Bridgelayer. Is it yours or your friends build? As far as I know there's no kit out of it in any scale.
One small advice to you: You'll loose your photos on Photobucket sooner or later if you don't pay them money for storage. Have also been on Photobucket some years ago and exactly that happend to my storaged photos but I saved them all on my computer. I can recommend Imgur.com as a picture host. It's fast, free and gives you no hassle. You might try it out.

Hi Torsten,

Many thanks on the headsup re Imgur. Will def check it out.

The Leguan is Jeremy's and is indeed commercially available. Its a 1/35 resin conversion by Y-Modelle and is designed to fit the HB Leo 2A6. Jeremy used the 2A4 version (on which the Leo 2SG is based) so a few tweaks were required.

Cheers,
Johannan

I would have joined this campaign but "what if" are out. I was hoping to build a Canadian Leopard 2A7+ project I was looking to build.

Thanks for the corrections about the Leguan, Johannan. Didn't know about that because I'm not very much into aftermarket parts. Most of my builds are oob. But of course I know Y-Modelle. They have some interesting and unusual vehicles of the Bundeswehr, which you normally don't get from the mainstream manufacturers.

DJ, correct, no "What If" Leos here, I'm sorry. But maybe you change you mind when this campaign has started and build a "real" canadian Leo ....

Anyway, I have noticed that I still haven't posted 3 Leo user countries, among them our NATO partners from the Iberian Peninsula. So here we go ....

Portugal


Spain


and finally Qatar


These pics are especially for Johannan ....

Singapore


Germany


To be continued ....

Nice catch, Freddy! Only 2 months to go ....
I have 2 kits of this in my stash ....

.... and will try to come close to this beauty ....


But before that I have another campaign on my "production list" where I will build 2 Finnish Air Force Bf 109. So I hope I can start also in May with my Leo ....

Have fun!
