Various Leopard 1
« on: February 14, 2023, 05:28:06 AM »
Hello friends,
I don't think I have a post about my Leopard 1 here yet, so I'll start now. You should already know my 5 MEXAS.



Already in 2018 I built this Marksman on Leopard 1. I bought some sprue sets from Takom.











"Story" gave me the idea to build the panther from the movie "A bridge too far"



I had received finished models from a dead modeler. Sometimes just scrap. But I want to use a lot of them. Oh no, do I really want to do this?

I couldn't take the under hull, it was so flat



I'll take the Gepard one, it's wrong on Tamiya





Now I use the parts from Tamiya. A friend gave me leftovers. Always without under hull and some parts were missing





I bathed the parts in destainer







The drive also has to be rebuilt



it will continue soon

So many Leopards, so many variations.  You have your work ahead of you to build all of the versions.  A well-stocked spare parts stash is also a requirement.  :smiley:

Hello, there was also this problem:



On the other hand, this was easier:







I cast the boxes when I built the Chilean Leopard 1 20 years ago (Ex NL)

I like builds that bring an old model a new life

I'm flattered my suggestion was worthy of your artistic pursuits.
