This is a nice kit to build! Although lacking in several details, it is a great basic build. Have fun with it.

I've noticed that it's a little soft in a few areas and too thick in a few others, but it looks like a Leopard.

Yes. And that is what it boils down to, it looks like a Leopard.

It's a lot like the Panther Ausf. A in a lot of ways lol. Open fenders, open drivers vision ports, motorization plugs, and lots of room for improvements.

I did drill out the mantlet ports for the sight and coax , and I detailed the back a little. Just a few details to bring up the crispness level a touch.

Very cool, looking forward to more.

It’s looking good! Always liked how the A4 variant looked.

I have a couple of those old Tamiya kits in my inventory.  Garnted, it is not detailed to today’s standards, but one can still make a nice representation of this late model Leopard 1 with it.   I‘m planning on assembling and finishing one in NATO colors.
