Battletank Leopard style pt.1 - Turret

This was my first bigger kitbash that includes also some custom made parts. I wanted a tank that looks similar to those smashing across the battlefields this days and so I got some inspiration from the Leopard and the Abrams.
I bought a LeMan Russ and a Chimera via eBay and started the chopping. First I started with the turret, unfortunately there are no wip pics but you get the idea.


Basically it's a LeMan Russ turret glued onto piece of Plastcard and then the sides glued onto. Finally the top plate and then a lot of bits from various kits.


  1. That really moves things on! Great effect and well done especially on the build quality - I know how difficult it can be to get sections of plasticard to line up like that. I for one am very interested to see how it looks on the hull.

  2. Thanks.
    It's indeed tricky sometimes but with the help of clothes pegs, hgreen stuff and sanding paper it can be done. ;)
    I have to admit the hull was easier, don't exactly know why but you'll see it in the next post.
