Leopard 2A6 Empty
PostSubject: Leopard 2A6   Leopard 2A6 EmptyWed Jun 12 2013, 15:04

This 35 scale Tamiya kit of the latest Leopard 2A6, was traded {as an un opened kit}, for a 48 scale Bristol Beaufighter TFX in 455 Sqn RAAF livery, several years ago and I decided to complete it as an Evaluation Vehicle as a possible replacement to the then aging Leopard A4's the Army where considering up grading to a more modern vehicle. The AusCam is all Humbrol enamels using #117 Forest Green, #118 Tan and #33 Mat Black, both the track and the Hush Puppies have been painted, using Tamiya enamels of Metallic Grey and Flat Black.
The model with exception of the camnet is an OOB build.
