it looks like I'll have a complete turret left over.

Maybe use it as a coastal defense piece?

Or put it on another hull - maybe a wheeled platform like a LAV or Boxer?

Nice idea, but it's way out of my comfort zone when it comes to required skills, and I don't have any donor kits. Unless I want to scale-o-rama the turret onto an 1/35 vehicle, which I have no plans to do.

If you did scale-o-rama the turret that would make the 120 approximately a 60mm gun which could be the current version of the one the Israeli's had in the 70s.

Fan artist taking the T-72 turret idea somewhat further:

Hey dy031101
I do it.

I'm thinking of how it looks like after an armour upgrade, preferably in either an all-ERA (explosive reactive armours) or an all-composite applique setup  ;)

I've actually got a plan to do an upgraded Leo 1 with ERA.  This would be a pretty much standard Leo 1 A5 with one of the current operators, possibly Greece.

Leclerc turret on Leo 2 hull is a definite improvement in the looks department.  :-*

T-72 turret on Leo 1 hull -  not so much!  :-X
Cheers,

Maybe swap the gun out on the Leopard for the gun from the T-72?  Yeah, I know there is still the loading system and internal layout for the commander and gunner to consider but that is all on the inside and out of sight.  :)

Great start, Didi! Are you using the Tamiya Leclerc 2 turret?

Yes, I use Tamiya´s Leclerc. The Heller Kit was too inaccurate.
