A nice, easy presentation and appropriately weathered. I would have taken a stab at an uprated Leopard II myself.

Firstly, GREAT job on the tank Michael, and the figures as well. What modifications did you have to do in order to make the Australian version ? I plan on doing one sometime....

Hello Richard,

The mods are the umbreller mount beside the commanders and loaders hatch. The resin Fridge in the rear turret bussel on the right side and the power connector base for the fridge.
There is a link on the Mouse House page on building the australian version
