    This week I have mostly been sticking placky Leopards together…

    I like this kit. Having both turrets is a bonus.

    Yes, it’s a cracking set. 🙂

    Pretty dizzying array of models/marks, even though they are mostly the same!  One of the things I like about PSC is the way they include parts for all sorts of different versions, pretty high class IMO.

    What you’ve done looks great!

    Cheers DSG.  Well there are subtle differences even where the turret-shape is the same, such as the type of pintle MG and the type of night-vision/laser-rangefinder box above the gun.  The reason I got these instead of the PSC Leopard 1 is that the PSC kit only includes the ‘square’ 1A3/1A4 turret and doesn’t include an FN MAG pintle MG for the Canadian version.  I think the fact that TY include two versions of turret, two types of MG and two types of searchlight/night-vision/laser-rangefinder box and enough parts (e.g. two main gun-barrels) to make two complete turrets gives them the win on this one.

    PSC do however, make the Belgian Leopard 1 BE in metal (former Armies Army model), which is going to be a must-buy when I get around to getting the Belgians.  It should also be useful for the Norwegian and Italian Leopard variants.

    I should add that QRF also now do specific metal models for the Dutch Leopard 1 NL and Leopard 1-V, Canadian Leopard C1 and German Leopard 1A1/1A2 and 1A3/1A4.  I’ve only got their old 1A3/1A4 model, but from the photos it would appear that only the QRF models have the correct arrangement of stowage boxes etc for each national variant.

    Very nice. I’ll have to grab some of those for my AK47 peacekeepers. Love the camouflage on the top ones.

    Nice terrain cloth too…where’s that from?

    Cheers!  The camo’d ones are Danes.  The cloth is from Tiny Wargames.
