I would've preferred a Strv122, a 2A5DK or a 2HEL, but it does look good. Hopefully it's the start of something.

Hope the kit's better than the spelling is.
Gotta agree with Ed. One of the other variants would of been nice.
But as a modeler we have to be happy with all of the new releases the last couple of years. Hang in there folks. The more new companies now out there the more chances you'll get your wish !
Thanks Ed for the heads up!

The small print on the box-art was full of "creative spelling"

The rest looks good though, I'll need to check if I could find some space in the stash for one of these

Well if they can't get the spelling right I'd hate to think what lurks inside.

Well, my typing is all that precjsice anymoor. Blame it on age and the cumulative affect of elmers glue fumes.

I haven't built a Leopard in years, might have to put the one on my list.

If this new "Leo" kit is successful, I'll bet there will more versions of this kit coming from BORDER in the near future...
