Thanks for the news Pawel, though my first thoughts were, the Italeri/Revell 2A6 with new parts to make a 2A6M, and hence 'new tool'?

The Puma would be a most welcome release, also hoping for a Fennek and Mungo or a LWB Wolf.

Cheers

in braille scale.
I'm kind of hoping they do a 1/72 M108 and M109 one day.
And an M107, M110 and M41 and M47 would fill some small scale holes while they're at it.

"New tool" usually means exactly that: new tool. But in case of Leopard I'm sceptical myself...

Really happy to see the Puma because its a very cool looking vehicle in prototype form - let alone in service spec (whatever that may end up being)

It seems that "new tool" is more and more a gimic by producers to re-start interest in previous kits.

"New Tool" does not always equate to accuracy. If Revell tackles the accuracy issues of the Leopard 2 kits then the proof will be in the pudding...or the bratwurst in this case!

I really hope, that they will do an all new 2A6M in 1:35.

And if the Puma is the same standard as the Boxer, it will be a very good Model-

Hey guys,

I have the new 72nd 2A6M, and it looks very nice. Much more work to be done for the suspension, for one thing, and more attention paid to the hull sides as well.

Cheers,

Olaf

How did the new 1/72 version turn out?

Did Revell properly depict the engine air intake modifications? No model producer has done that yet on any 1/35 Leopard 2A5/2A6 kit.

From which version to which has there been a noticable change in the engine air intake?

Best regards
