I have been really struggling with a Group Build that has been leaving me flat lined as far a modeling mojo is concerned.

So. I dug out a Dragon Leopard II A6 in 1/72 to ease my pain. A very nice kit with lots of details and quite nice vinyl tracks.
Colors used are Tamiya's NATO green, black and brown. Blu-Tack was used as a masking agent.

Thank you for looking.

Nice one, Jeff, I'm a bit of a fan of the Leopard series of tanks. Just something I'd like to ask, if you don't mind - did the tracks give some trouble? I'm looking at the front road wheel on the right hand side (in the second photo) as it looks like it is being pulled upwards by the tension of the track.

Yes Shaun the tracks gave me a little issue. I could not find a glue that would hold them together. I finally used two part epoxy glue holding the tracks together with micro clothes pins. To be safe I let them stand overnight. It worked.

A very nice job too Jeff. I do like the look of the Leopard and I have a few variants in the stash that ought to really see the light of day.
