Thanks for the review!

I have that kit somewhere bought it for $3 back in the early 90s.

You wrote "Personally I intend to rebuild the turret for a Leo 1A0 pre-production tank (sanding off & replacing everything is a requirement anyway)", you may be better off waiting for the announced Revell kit.

Cheers,

Christophe

Hi Christophe,

Are they doing an A0? I was mainly just thinking "waste not, want not"...

Revell list their new kit as "Leopard 1 (2. - 4. Produktionslos)" should be a much better starting point anyway.

Cheers,
