Leopard 1A2

Manufacturer: ESCI

By Stephen Brezinski

The kit went together well and appears accurate in scale and features considering the kit's age.  Tracks are the link & length type.  Finished in a light OD and Italian markings from the kit.  This is one of three or four versions of the Leopard 1 released by ESCI, mostly differing in the turrets.  This has always been one of my favorite AFV's.  The vehicle is armed with the British 105-mm tank gun common to the US M60, early Merkeva, and late Chieftain tanks.  Revell has recently released its own kit of a Leopard 1 with noticeable improvements over the old ESCI kit.
