Default Polish Leopard 2A-PWL

Hey Guys! I decided to build this for my father , his father (my grandfather) fought against the Nazi, and then Soviet invasion toward the end of WW2. He was part of a Polish Underground Army anti-armor division.. My grandfather enjoyed talking about tanks and had just about every book about them. He did often tell me how superior the German tanks were to the Soviets.. He always hoped to see Americans troops with their Shermans, but that never happened... Hope you enjoy it. Constructive criticism is appreciated!

Very cool subject! I saw an Leo 2 in action at an Bundeswehr exhibition as i was kid. The sound is very impressive. I still can hear it.

If your Dad like german tanks build him an Kingtiger.

Agree.... It's HOBBYBOSS.. I also had to order decals for this version from Europe.

Ah, thanks! I am interested to get these HB Leopards sometimes down the road. As it is, your build is looking good, M!

add some lengths of sprue inside the hull between the lower hull and engine deck. ALL Leopard 2 kits have a sag point just aft of the turret ring at the engine deck. You will see when you put the turret on that the rear of it hits the air intakes and radiators or comes real close.

Build the tamiya one first. The HB kits are OK but require ALOT of work to even get to fit properly in some cases. I am still struggling through their Leopard 2A6M CAN kit and i have had it for a year.

Thanks, HWR! I was told the HB details are soft and in minor areas, not so accurate BUT I did not know the fitting is shit?

Edited: I forgot to say I got both the Tamiya Leopards but will finish both the Italeris first. Shoulda buy more of these when prices were reasonable. Stupid military kit prices today is ridiculous!

Damn.. I'm screwed.. because I'm pretty much done.. I got 2 to 3 hours of work left. And yes the parts don't all fit perfectly.. the hull was a bitch!!! Here is some pics..

Default Re: Polish Leopard 2A-PWL

you can still add it. Just take the turret off and install the sprue through the turret hole. Its best to do it after the hull is glued together anyway since it can help you get the height right.
