thanks for the pictures. I don't believe this kit will be an improvement on the DML 2A6 kit,but I'm still going to pick it up. The track looks very nice,along with some other details......Dan

I can't wait to get my greedy hands on this 1/72 scale monster!

Thanks you for this info!

Looks good, but shame about the moulded on tools - I had hoped that they would be separate.

Out of interest, how easy would it be to backdate this kit to produce a more accurate A5 than can be built from current Revell A5 kit? Is it just a question of subsituting the barrel and side skirts from the A5 kit (which would still leave you with everything you need to build an A4 with the remainding parts)?

It's academic as far as I'm concerned as I've just built the Revell A5. But as the new A6 kit has the correct driver's and commander's hatches I wonder whether I would have saved myself some work by using it as a basis for the A5.

By the way, I see that Revell's 1:72 Marder is also due for re-release in September.

Those tracks in particular look good. I've still got a part done Revell A5 back from many many years ago so it'll be interesting to see how much better this one in.

Regards

Alex

Can't do a Canadian version without it. It's been talked about several times. Let's 'get 'er done'.

Shame on me.

Thanks

I have done one of the smaller parts of etch and it is a demanding job to do so that it doesn't get pooched!! But will look great when done!!
Highly recommended for Canuck Leo 2s, am giving serious thought to getting another!!
Would be nice to see the set for the new modified Canuck Leo 2s we got from the Dutch with the shorter barrel, just covers the rear of the tank. It seems it is preferred by our tankers.
Just received my Tankograd book on the Leo 2 Can so will be studying it for the weekend (nite shift) for the details, like scratch building the umbrella!!
Once I get going I will post pics.
