Product Description

This is a full set of parts to upgrade the turret of the old Italeri/Revell Leopard 1A4 kit.  You get a replacement MG skate ring with correct number/location of periscope heads, an interior ring with the bodies of the periscopes as seen through an open hatch (including PERI eyepiece), a set of hatch spring assemblies for the Loader’s hatch, and a hole-drilling template.

Shave off the incorrect kit periscope heads around the TC ring (but not the one standing out to front-left!), place the drill template with its lugs in the hatchway and the other lug in the hatch pivot hole, drill the four ends with a 1mm drill, and place the new ring in the holes!  The exterior ring has a sprue across the opening for the hatch pivot that needs to be trimmed off and sanded flat.

The inner ring has no alignment pegs – just eyeball it based on the hatch-pivot pedestal and the periscope locations.

There are two different Loader’s hatch springs – “open” and “closed”.  Start by shaving off the kit details for the mechanism, and add the spring of choice.  (See pictures.)

These parts can be adapted to other brands of Leopard 1A4 kit.  See my Shop for other combinations used on Leopard 1s, and separate items for those who don’t need the full set.

Tip – wash everything gently in warm soapy water and rinse before using.  Sometimes parts still have a little oil or wax adhering that needs to be removed before paint will stick properly.

[General Shapeways disclaimer:  I only design the parts – Shapeways does the printing.  If you are not entirely satisfied with the print quality (they can sometimes ship sub-par prints - it happens!) then please contact Shapeways Customer Service directly to complain and ask for a reprint.  They usually expect you to supply photos to prove the defects, before you do anything to the parts!]
