i may have asked you before.... but what do you use for antislip surfaces?
5. July, 19:37
Ingo F
Thanks mate! 🙂
I used Hul Tex from VMS for the antislip surface.
https://de.vms-supplies.com/vms-hull-tex
Very good product and easy to use. Bought it a few years ago and still have about 2/3 left.
5. July, 20:23
Spanjaard
thanks!
5. July, 22:11
Ingo F
The build is finally completed. Took me only 3 1/2 months of work. 😄
15. July, 18:03
WhiteGlint
Congrats, Ingo! I'd say it was well worth the effort, it looks awesome. I can't get enough of that turret's shape.
Now off to painting and weathering! 😄

If you don't mind me asking, how exactly are you able to achieve this precise work on the plastic sheets? Drawing and cutting. It's on of the most basic things to do, but I struggle a lot.

Where did you get the tree from? 🙂
6. July, 18:25
Jasper Breur
I got them from here: https://www.gmodelscene.com/product/gmodelscene-pine-tree-200mm-gms03/ Not recommended if you want to use any kind of product on them though, the colouring will get into litteraly everything. Even after multiple layers of clear coat and paint I couldn't prevent the snow from turning green.

Let's call it very well done 🙂 Love the shading 👍

Thanks Łukasz🤙

Rui Da Silva
First, very nice indeed!
Second, I see that picture 40 shows the Leo along with five important materials used 😉
Third, if you don't mind my asking, did you happen to serve in the LdSH, or are you just familiar with the regiment?
Lastly, I only experienced the Leopard C1, so I don't know how accurate your's is, but if I was to imagine what it would be like to transition from the old C1 to the Leo 2, I imagine it would like just like yours :-D
5. July, 05:04
Mirko Römer
Thanks Rui, much appreciated comments!
Second thing is most important!!
Third is just by pure interest in Canadian vehicles. I served as a conscript in the Bundeswehr with PzPiKp 150.
At least I tried to be accurate, as original and model are kind of hybrids in the Leopard family. Glad, I could give you a little flashback. 🙂 You can find my Leopard C1 here:

This is a 12 hour build challenge put on by Southern California AMPS. Build a kit from start to finish within a 12 hour time span, broken up into four hour sessions over a three month period, all on Zoom meetings. So far this is what I've accomplished during the first four hour session in January.
26. January, 18:38
Patrick Hagelstein
Alright! Nice to see you took a Dutch subject for that challenge. ;) Good luck! 👍
26. January, 19:48
Bob Hall
Very Cool ! I just did a AMT East German T-72, Such a lacking and pain in but kit. Always loved those Leopards, look forward to seeing this come out !
26. January, 20:23
Carlos Cisneros
Thanks guys!
@ Patrick, my Dutch YPR was getting lonely on the display shelf. She's long overdue for some company.

@ Bob, yeah, I've built a couple of their T-72s back when they were first released. I will do another, now that I have the skills to properly improve and correct that kit, within reason. It's the closest thing OOB to a T-72 Ural out there currently.
26. January, 21:41
Jos Jansen
Perfect, a Dutch Leopard 2A NL...count me in mate! one remark my friend, the two large grids on the back on top of the hull now look like two large spoked wheels, there is normally a mesh over them.
28. February, 09:17
Carlos Cisneros
Thanks for that update on the engine deck mesh Jos. And thank you for looking in! I'll have a look at photos and see what I have on hand to address that. I only have one more 4 hour session left in the club challenge, so planning and preparation are a must!
28. February, 15:04
Peppy
Great looking build Carlos.
The zoom call is spectacular, novel idea
I never even thought of. Brilliant.
Hehe, gives me an idea.
28. March, 15:39
Carlos Cisneros
Thanks Peppy! The club is planning to do a 20 hour build over the course of five months. Same concept, broken down into four hour blocks.
28. March, 22:16
Mona Abel
you've done a great job on this leopard 2 A3 as well..
26. June, 22:46
Carlos Cisneros
Thanks Mona. This one is certainly a kit that needs a little help to bring out its proper potential.
