Tanker's Tuesday: Leopard 2

The Leopard 2 is a main battle tank developed by Krauss-Maffei in the early 1970s for the West German Army. The tank first entered service in 1979 and succeeded the earlier Leopard 1 as the main battle tank of the German Army. Various versions have served in the armed forces of Germany and twelve other European countries, as well as several non-European nations. More than 3,480 Leopard 2s have been manufactured. The Leopard 2 first saw combat in Kosovo with the German Army and has also seen action in Afghanistan with the Danish and Canadian contributions to the International Security Assistance Force.

Classic Camouflage 'Dazzles' in London

In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of World War I, German artist Tobias Rehberger was commissioned by the British Navy to resurrect the WWI-era form of ship cloaking known as 'dazzle camouflage.' Using visually disorienting patterns and colors, 'dazzle ships' were believed to be better protected from attacks by German U-Boats during the Great War.

Tanker's Tuesday:Klemm Light Tank (Heavy Gear)

The Klemm Light Tank Custom Two Pack includes two Klemm Light Tank models and 1 set of customization parts to make several common variants (Bandit Hunter Klemm, Tyburr, Jaxon or Stormhammer). All components of this upgraded kit are cast in resin and metal. 20mm tall by 41mm long 1/144 scale.

The ones that I own are the first run 1/87th scale, I have 16 of them so plan to do some
conversion work for other variants.
