    Default Dinky Leopard AA Tank (Gepard).............

    Gents, I threatened to do another restoration job on the Dinky range of die cast Leopard tanks...there were three such die casts, Leopard 1 tank, Leopard AA tank (Gepard) and a Leopard recovery tank (Bergpanzer)...this is my second restoration, unfortunatly I did not take a "before" photographs....but it was not as bad as the first one, the Leopoard tank, it just needed flatting down and repainting with further parts aerials etc added, as was a decal sheet...however when bought one of the AA gun barrels was missing (common fault) so I sourced a replacement part, shown.....it will do, but sadly not 100% ! I will try to source an original from a damaged/donar toy. Now for the recovery tank................For further information on the "Gepard" Flakpanzer see here Flakpanzer Gepard - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia and this video is outstanding !
    Flugabwehrpanzer Gepard - YouTube the music is good too !
    Prost ! Steve.

    Thats a beauty Steve! Good work!

    The Leopard is such an amazing tank, I remember admiring their prowess when on excercise in Germany in the 80's!

    However I always thought our Chieftains had the edge

    Nick...the Chieftain was certainly a great tank, but I will have to be biased ! Just as would choose a Mercedes Benz over a Rover.... lol

    Good job Steve!

    I am very curious though - where does one begin to look for a spare anti aircraft gun barrel for a Dinky Leopard tank? Are there sellers of such spares?
