Okay,... head between legs,...breath calmly,....
Now that I've recovered somewhat, it's time to sit quietly a while and contemplate the beauty of life.
Hmmmm,... I wonder if it'll be engineered in a way to make a non-Mexas Leopard C2 a straight-forward conversion? Regardless, this is glorious news! My Takom St. Chamond just arrived and it's an excellent kit. What the heck is Orochi tracks?
I get the impression you didn't know about this kit. The tracks do look naff and I hope this doesn't bode ill for the whole kit. I wonder if the lower hull and running gear the tracks are on in the review are from this new kit?
Already avaliable for pre-order on hobby easy, with a 50.98$ CDN price tag plus shipping. So about 70 all told. Not bad considering most LHS in Canada won't have it for at least 6-10 months and it'll probably be about 70-80$ anyways.
Hmmmm, seems these folk are willing to listen to the experts.

If Takom/Orochi bought Anthony's DVDs and are now willing to hear Michael out about the issue(s) with the tracks, maybe they'd be willing to send either or both of you a test-shot of the main kit so that any other problems could be vetted. I'd sure rather have you guys go over a prototype, even if it means a longer wait for the production kit. Course, this assumes Michael or Anthony, (or Jason or Jim for instance) would be willing to look over a test-shot...
Great news if the Takom c2 is going to blow our minds.Im optimistic and am thinking it could bode well for the future and have contacted Takom and told them of a wishlist myself and others might like to see produced.
We all wait with baited breath from Richard
Maybe we should organize ourselves and send Takom...

... a set of Anthony's Leopard C1, C1 Mexas and C2 DVDs, with a little note underlining the C1 Mexas material! Afterall, they'll have the hull essentially reading to go with the Leopard C2 Mexas release. Maybe it wouldn't take much to interest them in doing up the turret of this cool looking beastie in it's KFOR livery. I'm also looking forward to seeing if their new kit has the MEXAS armour separate from the hull and turret, making a non-up-armoured Leopard C2 a potential subject.
