Leclerc MBT

Scale: 1/72

Used kit: Revell

This model was built with some modifications. For example I added resin turret stowage rack (by Azimut), holds and other details made of copper wire, plastic rivets etc. The crew members are converted Preiser figures.

The model represents tank which belongs to 501/503e RCC (Régiment de chars de Combat) operating in Kosovo during 2000-2001 winter. French soldiers applied whitewash over the usual camouflage at the time.  Some reference photos can be found in French magazine "Raids".
