Sir, I've been out looking and found that the Italeri Kit 224 Leopard 1A4 kit is now out of production, but did find a post out there that you might have some in stock that would enable me to match up with your model TJM-002 conversion kit so I could assemble our Cdn version from the late 80's. Any chance ?

Tamiya also does a 1/35 Leopard 1A4.


UNfortunately its not very good and the Trackjam conversion is designed for the Italeri kit.

It is inferior to the Italeri kit and does not include all the required parts....such as all the glacis plate grousers and racks.

Thanks Jason - I just found a Cdn conversion kit from the Col at the helm of trackjam.com for the Italeri Leopard kit 224 that would give me exactly what I want - unfortunately Italeri doesn't make that kit anymore, so the hunt is on. More to follow

Mike



Check eBay...there are two there right now....search for "1/35 Leopard 1A4" or "Italeri Leopard 1A4"....if you don't get lucky with those keep an eye out on eBay...and search for "Testors/Revell Leopard 1A4" as well.

Hey folks ! Does anyone out there know where I can find a model kit for a Leo C1A4 or its' closest cousin? I was a Leo mech with the RCD/ 8CH in the late 80's and would love to build a model of the old girl. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks Mike



Mike...good luck with your Leopard C1 project.

If you need any info on the old Leo C1s to refresh your memory just drop me a message.
