Off the Bench: Canadian Leopard C1

The latest to leave my bench is a Canadian Leopard C1.  This model was build from the MBK kit, which is just a remold of the old Italeri Leopard 1A4.  Added to the kit was the TrackJam Models Leopard C1 conversion set, which contains the required turret and a few other bits to really make it Canadian.  I also used the Perfect Scale barrel, the Real Model photo-etched update and tracks from Hong Kong Creations Workshop.

While the resin turret took a little work, the rest of the model came together very well.

To match the Canadian (NATO) green I used Vallejo Air Dark Camo Green, while weathering was done using a combination of Mig pigments and True Earth effects.

Give a conversion a try sometime, it is fun.
