Birthday present

Last week I got this Leo as a birthday present. My son chose it saying "dad likes big cats". Opening the box it was a bit stunning: I've built panzer 1 and 2 and 38(t)variants so far, plus a Stuart but nothing as big as this. Here is a comparison shot with a tiny Pz I ausf A.
I decided to build it in a month - no aftermarket sets, purely OOB build. Yesterday I glued the lower chassis and am pleased. The fit is good. Seems to be a fun build - but now I need some NATO color...

Friul in progress

As I have my spare time with playing World of Tanks (killer of modelling hobby), my usually slow progress turned to ultra-giga-mega-slow. Though the track of the M106 has been cleared, drilled and is now being glued. I like this vehicle - lots of colour photographs were found on the net (mostly M113 but some M106A1 as well) so the detailing will be thorough. Using the Eduard sets and lots of wire, plastic and imagination.
