Leopard 2

Sorry posts have been a bit thin of late.  Recent modelling accomplishments are also rather scarce but include this brace of 1/48ish scale Leopard 2.
Hull down in a dip thoughtfully provided by Zoe the dog.

It would be very easy to pick fault with these models - a very obvious fault in fact.  Let's see who spots it first...
Added 1525 28.09.16:  I should point out that these are early L2s, with the slab-sided turrets rather than the pointier A5 versions.

The front of the turret should look like this >=== instead of |=== ??

Who makes these?

Paul Liddle said...

The side skirts are straight instead of going up and down.

Not enough rivets ?

Russell Phillips said...

I'm pretty sure both turret hatches should be circular. And one (loader's?) should have an AA MG. Also, what's the box thing at the front left the turret, should that be there?

As per my late addition to the post, these are intended as early L2 from the late 1970s.

So you count them too?

Shouldn't the turret have an indent for the aiming sights.

Oh the engine covers should be round and the smoke grenades should be in a line.

So, Foxholes for infantry but Dogholes for tanks?

I'm sure the opposition will be too busy admiring these tanks to count the wheels.

Arii. Though it's been released under several brands.

Dog holes for leopards. It's a cornucopia of wildlife!
