Yes, and in fact I currently have 1.5 and 2 stud wide track links from them. The 1.5 will be for an undisclosed IFV, and the 2 stud to complete the Challenger.

It's a ten year old Cannon: does the trick!
Well, the lense is only three years old, and it's an expensive piece of kit ($800 CND). It allows me to pull off some photos that I otherwise couldn't have.

Made some improvements to the running gear of the Leopard 2A6 (along with many chassis and turret modifications).

I got bored, so I decided to make an armour upgrade package. While improving the all around survivability of the vehicle, the added weight has a significant impact on the tank's mobility.

This is really well designed, except for the cages. They're ugly and break up the sleekness of the rest of the tank.

I disagree, the cages look awesome. I might even use them for the Union tank I am building.

The Germen MOD has no comment at this time.

Took some fresh photographs over the weekend, with cage armour once again prevalent in these photographs :D

Camo scheme is expected to change from mostly dark bley to a mixture of light and dark tan soon! (Plus more cage armour - one can never have too much :))

Your tanks look great! I could get behind some instructions too...
