These aerials have been re-engineered to have real springs at the base to replace the previous turned brass items. They have also been redesigned for more accuracy.
These important parts of any AFV's equipment are often completely neglected by nearly all kit manufacturers. For those of you who would rather not fill antenna mounts with random lengths of wire or stretched sprue, what do you do?
Here is our answer. These turned brass aerials are literally the topping on the cake you have just completed. Why spoil the hours and hours of work you have just spent? Your model deserves the best.
This set of aerials accurately depicts the antenna masts used on Canadian Leopard 2A4 and 2A6. The Leo 2s each carried three in Afghanistan, and just two back home in Canada. Three different turned brass aerials are provided (one of them in two parts) plus alternative antenna mounting units in resin.
The aerials both have their springs turned from brass, and there is even a safety ball turned on the end of two of these aerials, as on the real thing.
These replace the original LW014 aerials that were previously available, and the previous BMK aerials, neither of which are in production. For the same price as these items, you get even more!
