Those that know me know I usually on do Allied WWII, usually British and occasionally French

Well I got some shots of the latest version of the Singaporean Leopard 2A4SG at the recent 'Army Open House' Event and I thought I'd have a go at making a 2A4SG from the hobbyboss kit

Well after about 80-ish hours this is where I am

The real one:


And where I'm up to











All comments (and I mean bad too) welcome as always

lots of white p-card, nice! I'd not be surprised if HB added a couple sprues to the 2A4 kit to make one these. Its a sharp looking beast.

I might make a kit of it in the future, if demand is there.

Thanks

It is a lot of white card, but there is just as much to add on yet, plus etch!

If hobbyboss did kit this there would need to be twice as much in the box, and I hate to say it, but I hope they'd do a better job than they did on the 2a4 I'm using. A lot of white card has gone on fixing their kit (such as the commander's sight which was so bad I had to replace it complete rather than fix it)

There is a lot of slat on the back, so there will be a lot of etch when I'm finished drawing it!



Plus I haven't even looked at the running gear yet!
