Been planing a Slick 60 forever and Def sent me the upgrade kit 2 years ago. I started to do it with the Tamiya kit and along came the AFV Club kit and it is by far one of AFV Club's best. The detail they have been producing lately is exceptional. the turret and resin detail is Def the PE is Def models. the wheels are from the kit just primed. the tracks are a separate offer from AFV Club (they should include those if they want to compete with Meng). Def and Legends make up most of the stored gear.
finished the build portion of this model. Its a Danish Leopard 2A5 with
EX upgrades, some of the upgrades that will be included in the new
Leopard 2A7. I received the Danish Conversion set from Accurate Armour
for the Hobby Boss kit and started in on the build. Then decided to to
use the Tamiya kit with parts from Hobby Boss, and a few parts from the
new Meng Leo.
Leopard update I have 4 leopards in progress. here is a small update
for those that are interested. I got a chance to start in on the Meng
2A4 and so far it looks great. also Im working on a to part article for AFV Modeler of a Danish Leopard 2A5.
I like to think that doing a German WW2 model is like everything else but for some reason I take a different approach. Maybe it's because its all been done and I'm shapely focusing on doing something different.
this is the new kit from Tamiya very nicely done and a simple weekend build.
This is the first heavy tank model I've finished since January, This is a
Russian T-80BV MBT. The kit is from Trumpeter its a good kit I
recommend it, there is lots of great detail. I added a few AM parts
mainly the tracks. The paint theme is a combination of two sets of
photos one set has the green,black,tan paint severely worn. Because I
already did this color scheme with a T-90 I decided to do the same worn
look using another color scheme the Russians use. You can see all the
details in a coming issue of Abrams Squad magazine.
