About

Hello there! 

My name is Connor Querin, and I, along with my grandfather Joseph Rapaich, are looking to put into production a limited amount of custom Leopard 2 kits.

Rounding off at eight hundred and fifty-eight pieces, this vehicle is chock-full of engaging components. The model sports a fully traversable turret, working suspension (best suited to carpet and blanket!), a cannon capable of elevation and depression, two opening turret hatches, a four round ready rack (for BrikWars purposes), a turret basket capable of fitting three minifigures, room in the hull for a driver or an LED light kit from BrickStuff, and an accessible engine bay with a removable powerpack. 

Achtung!

Includes a four round ready-rack, hatches that providing seating for two minifigs, and (will) have a roof mounted BrickArms MG42 with M-60 ammo box.

Due to a lack of interior space, the driver is unable to equip a helmet - expect a fair amount of concussions!

Originally, I was going to include the Bundeswehr Panzergrenadier as a reward option. However, without it being featured in the kit itself, it is simply too high of a price point compared to purchasing it first hand off the designer. So, if you are interested in acquiring a commander for your cat, hit up The Minifig Co.* and New York Customs if the G36 AR is a must! Expertly designed, they will be a welcome addition to any modern German vehicle.

That is all! If you wish to browse through more photographs of this magnificent beast, feel free to check out my Flickr and Instagram accounts.

*As of this writting (03/06/17), the Bundeswehr minifigure designed by The Minifig Co. has yet to be released. There will be a campaign update once the minifig has been publicly announced.

For those who wish not to be trifled with the trivialities of camouflage, the Leopard is also available in Dark Bley.

Risks and challenges

Some of the challenges associated with this project is the timely acquirement of parts. Since some of the bricks necessary for the project were produced in limited amounts, there is no one BrickLink vendor who has the necessary stock.
Therefore, I have arranged stock to be set aside from multiple vendors, who I will be ordering from once the fundraising period has completed.

Unfortunately, the four light tan mud flaps will have to be changed over to dark tan, due to insufficient quantities available for acquirement.

Other than that, the seas are calm!

    Leopard 2A6 - Back in Bley

    Aside from the lack of camouflage, the Leopard is identical in all respects to it's tan counterpart. Ideal for those who are smitten with the kit, but wish not for camouflage.

    Leopard 2A6

    The mainstay of the Bundeswehr, the Leopard 2A6 was first delivered to the German Army in 2001. In its Lego® form, it sports a two-tone camouflage scheme, an extra bank of smoke grenades, and some bushes for contrast.

    In order to remain a reasonable charge, a crew is not provided. However, as with the War Bonds, backer updates and an excellent photograph are de facto. However, you will wield the armoured fist, capable of dashing across the carpeted battlescape to wage war against the most abrasive of ABS bricks!
