Leopard 2A5 KWS

by Drewe Manton

 

Leopard 2A5 KWS

 


Tamiya's 1/35 scale Leopard 2A5 is available online from Squadron.com

 

Description

 

First thing's first. I'm not generally an armour modeller, but occasionally I do get hit by the bug, and this is the result - my first armour subject for over two years!

 

 

Couple this with my taking delivery of a new digital camera and I thought maybe this will be considered good enough for a spot of HyperScale. 

 

 

The model is the Tamiya Leopard 2A5 KWS, built straight from the box in a little over a week. The only additions were some tissue paper rolls in the rear turret bins. 

 

 

Paint is Humbrol and the final flat finish Polly Scale acrylic. Weathering was done with an oil wash and oil paint/enamel mixed for dry brushing. The dust build up around the lower area is a heavily thinned Humbrol dark earth/light grey mix sprayed randomly.
