Gepard KMW Special Edition

This is the only picture of the Gepard I build. It is the old Tamiya kit. Simple kit, but nice to build.


Dutch Leopard 1V

A lot of pictures of my Leopard 1V build. It is the Revell kit with a lot of extras as you can see on the photos. I built this one for a friend of mine who worked as a tank commander on this specific Leopard. It took a lot of time to build this one, especially all the changes and the scratch build. The D139E2 tracks are from Perfect Scale Modellbau.


German Kpz70

Not strictly a Leopard, but an important link between Leopard 1 and Leopard 2. It was designed by Germany and the US as the replacement for Leopard 1 and the M48/M60 family in the US, but the project failed completely. However, lessons learnt were used in Leopard 2 and M1 Abrams.

The Dragon Black Box model built straight from the box.

Dutch PRTL

The Dutch PRTL based on the Meng Gerard kit. This build was for a colleague of mine who worked in the Dutch anti-aircraft artillery. The PRTL conversion is a 3D print from Dutch Defence Miniatures.


German Bergepanzer 2

This is the Bergepanzer 2 from Takom. Great model, builds very easily.
