Hello everybody,
 
the bridgelayer tank "Biber" of the German army, based on the tank Leopard 1.
 
This is a conversion of Perfect Scale, based on the Revell 1:35 kit o the Leopard 1. It consists of fine resin parts, photo etched parts, wire and decals.
 
The bridge itself unfortunately is no more available so I will finish this without bridge ...

Nice start.

 

'The bridge itself unfortunately is no more available so I will finish this without bridge.'

The bridge is a separate resin kit?

 

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Mark

Hi,

Perfect Scale had a combined kit of the tank and the brdige ... but unfortunately they offer only the tank anymore... no bridge .... I do not know why, but they also say that it is no more available in the near future. Only the tank ... :( 

Elite Modell offer a similiar bridge but in a very awful quality .... 

So this one remains without bridge to see the upper construction of it .... next one will be the German Leguan system with bridge :) 

Cheers

Michael


regards,
Michael

Hello,
 
added the NATO camo to the Biber and painted all the small stuff with a fine brush. The dusty surface was achieved with oil color washes.
 
Now the last missing parts were added, then the Friul tracks were mounted and painted ....then pigments follow on the tracks and on the tank ....

Hello everybody,
 
a first washing with dust and dirt and other earth- and sand colored washes followed next on the tank...
