The current technique is... classified, although it is a legal connection. I'll be putting a post up soon that can enable one to purchase the instructions for the previous Leopard (it utilises a similiar method).

The Leopard 2A6M CAN is almost complete - just need to build a powerpack! And I'm waiting on the turret pieces (hurry up Canada Post!), so that may take some time. After that though, all that's left is to make instructions!

The new SW figs from the speeder battlepack are excellent, what with their printed legs and torsos looking almost exactly like Canadian Forces desert CADPAT camo. I need to pick up some more of them :D

Don't quite know yet - it mainly depends on if the Leopard is to be "mass produced" or not.
