Canadian Leopard C2 MEXAS
« on: December 06, 2022, 06:49:13 PM »
I've been building Leo 1 again for a long time. The 2 on the left have been finished for a few years. In the summer I started with Dozer. It's finished now. The Mexas from Meng.







Now comes the one with the "thermal cover". Base is Hobbyboss.











Check on Meng Mexas:

Nice collection of Mexas kits. The resin thermal cover looks good.

Hello,

The cover didn't fit so well on Hobbyboss front



I could have saved myself the work with scratching and copy in resin in 2015.





now ready:

Nice suite of tanks. Really nice work with the mods on all those Leopards.
Co-incidentily, I have just finished an Aussie Leopard 1A4 build, but using more ancient tamiya offering.

Indeed! Although its almost a shame to paint 'Mexas No 5'. With all that gleaming brass, it looks like jewelry   :-*

With your new direction, you might be needing a different 'handle' Didi. Perhaps Leopard Lad  :D

Lovely work as always, Didi  :smiley:

 ;D

Reportedly, the Canadian Army still has 82 Leopard 2 MBTs - 112 if you're counting support vehicles. I'm not sure whether that includes the 4 2A6s donated to Ukraine.

The real question is: How many of those Canadian Leo 2s are in good nick ... or even running?

Hello friends, hello Kerick

Only 2 get individual tracks. I bought these about 20 years ago. They're from HKCW. I broke it a bit. The other two get tracks from Italeri.

Coming along splendidly. I confess I don't keep up with modern armor too much, but these are really interesting.
