New build, my winter warfare Gepard “Hellfire”

This had to be something different then the standard camouflage

Colours, as there are a couple of them around.

So decided to go with a winter theme, with a “twitch” as you won’t

See a camouflage job like this in real life, and, being made a Dutch tank

It is also a strange duck, as the Dutch army never had this type of Gepard ;)

The camo job is done by Peter from Belgium, but if you don’t like it, don’t

Blame him, it is painted exactly to my wishes.

Took my time to make the decals and paint the details, I am quite pride in how

It turned out, hope you guys like it also.

About every model in my collection has a little story how I got it,

This panzer was on the wish list for a while!

TC member Renken2000 gave me a great tip, thanks for that one mate!

After a few emails picked this one op in Belgium, ( Houthalen )

Well worth the drive over there! (including getting lost getting there ;) )

And had to be a bit quick, there where more interested. But luckily i was the first.

Real nice guy to deal with to!

The specs of the real thing are impressive, check this out;

it is based on the Leopard 1 chassis, in real short,

Take a leopard 1 tank, kick the turret away,

Put a double 35mm anti aircraft gun on top!

Long 8150 mm

Wide 3390 mm

Weight 46000 kg

Engine 10 cylinder diesel, 860 hp

Crew 3

Weapons 2 cannon, 35 mm




Beautiful. Theres not many of these new built.



Wow! I think this scheme might also work in Kenya on the Safari park



That looks absolutely brilliant Stefan! Love the decals too Great job.



your back yard is most protected!



Yep, criminals, watch out! This tank has orders 'shoot at will'


Nice tank When I was in maron spain the mall in town had one for sale that was in 1997 1998 should have bought it. I almost bought one in the eighties my father tried to talk me into it but I wanted a fast car like anyother 7 year old at the time.



Well, WOW - that is really cool
