Found this excellent documentary covering the Leopard lineage, filled with tons of tank footage! However, it is only available in Deutsch (sorry English speakers :D).
While this isn't Lego, I thought I may as well put this up here for anyone who's interested in the low-down of the Leopard tanks.

Prost!

"They went with songs to the battle, they were young,
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow."


Here is the plan for the pre-production kits! Over the course of the coming week, I will be ordering parts for six Leopard 2A6M's and four 2A6M CAN's (this guy, just with a tan turret). Since I will be stateside for the next couple months, the kits will not be packaged nor sold until mid January.
Here's a thought - should the 2A6M, pictured above, have the Deutschland flag included in the kit?

Cheers!

Don't know just yet - the price will be a culmination of the parts cost, the design, and the time to assemble the kits for market.
As for shipping (since we're both Canucks) it shouldn't be too much.

Yes, the flag adds a nice touch. Also, adding those leaves as camo is genius!

I can ship something of that size / weight.  pretty much anywhere in canada for $8 with tracking.

Also, I -might- be interested in buying on if the price is right.
