looks very good, but if I had to go up against a Leo, I think I may have had a costipated look on my face too.
Great work, Thanks for sharing.

Looks great!
Also, how did you do the weathering on both your Leopard I and T-55? (I'm not very good at painting/weathering..)

I agree about it looking good, but going up against a Leo...... I think I would suffer from a condition opposite of constipation......[]

Cheers guys! On the t-55 I used preshading, then hull red chips. Finally i used Tamiya weathering powders. On the Leo I used the ak interactive NATO weathering kit. A filter, then a wash in the recesses, then blended rain streaking. Finally I used Tamiya powders for mud and dust.
