Instructions should be completed by the week's end, and they should be available for purchase in 2-4 weeks.

I know! However, most of my Lego is packed up right now in preparation for my move to California.

The digital model is complete! While it could never be released in this exact camo scheme (due to the inexistence of many parts in dark green), it can easily be changed to reflect the parts of the kit. I'll see about uploading some rendered photographs tomorrow (at least some photos of the tank from different angles) :D

The model includes a fully traversable turret, working suspension (best suited to carpet and blanket!), a cannon capable of elevation and depression, two opening turret hatches, a four round ready rack (for BrikWars purposes), a turret basket capable of fitting three minifigures (and an extra round of ammunition), room in the hull for a driver or an LED light kit from BrickStuff, and an accessible engine bay with a removable powerpack.

Details will be disclosed soon on how to aquire the model and/or instructions!

Redding, Northern California (plus I'll be helping out BAYLUG in completing a project, so I'll be in San Francisco a bit too).

Can the tracks be switched out with Brickmania track links?

Brickmania tracks are tricky and expensive. If you want to kit bash then go for it but brickmania tracks are special.

No they cannot PoeDomo - even if they could, they would look off due to their being 2 wide instead of 3. This would force me to redesign the entirety of the Leopard! Plus, as Captain-Camper said, they are quite expensive (especially when compared to Lego's 3 stud wide track links). However, they are excellent for when recreating IFV's and other vehicles to scale.

They do have a 3 stud wide variant if I recall.
