Leopard Club is a website devoted to modelling the Leopard 1
and Leopard 2.
Run by Michael Shackleton, author of Leopard 1 Trilogy
... and Dan Hay
Leopard Club exists to promote more interest in our favourite post-war family of tanks.
These tanks are very important in the overall history of military vehicles and have been woefully neglected by
the plastic model industry.
We feel that Leopard Club has had some small influence on the mainstream model companies in producing new-tool
Leopard 1 and 2 models.
In fact, since we started in April 2013, Takom and Meng have both produced Leopard 1 and 2 kits respectively,
with Tiger-Model about to join the Revolution.
Leopard Club produces the following:
- conversion and accessory pieces for all things Leopard 1 and Leopard 2 designed in-house and also in
co-operation with established companies and CAD designers.
We already produce resin, etch and brass accessories, and decal sheets.
- Dan Hay's exhaustive listings of all Leopard modelling products and books/reference material.
Leopard Fibel is a downloadable series of articles about specific
Leopard models in PDF format.
Leopard Fact File
is a downloadable series of PDF articles about the real beast and also about Leopard modelling in general
- rather than the specific subjects of Leopard Fibel.
This will complement Leopard Fibel with actual facts and photos of the full size and 1:35 scale Leopard 1 and 2 families.
