Herzliche Wilkommen, Frank! Sie werden hier viele Beratungen zur RC, lackierien, usw., finden. Wird's ein Tamiya, Torro, HengLong (oder was) Leopard sein? I hoffe daß Sie Photos auslesen werden denn wir alle Photos mögen. (Mein Deutsch ist nicht so gut: eigentlich bin ich ein Amerikaner der vor 55 Jahren im Americanishe Hochschule gelernt habe.

A warm welcome, Frank? Here you will find a lot of advice on RC, painting, and etc. Will be be a Tamiya, Torro, or HengLong Leopard? I do hope you will post photos, for we enjoy photos.

Welcome, Frank, :D and greetings to Niedersachsen from the Highlands of Schottland! We will look forward to the Malzburg Edn. model, equipped with an Elmod heart.
One of these days, I must try an Elmod in one of my machines. :thumbup: That's a 'Bucket List' item for me.

Great to have you with us Frank!

You'll love the Elmod! I have a very plain Taigen Tiger 1, but it has an Elmod Fusion Pro for it's innards! I'm very satisfied with it, once some kindly Gents on here helped me get my head straightened out around the setup! :{ Glad to have you with us! :wave:

Cheers,
Eric.

Wilcommen Frank, :thumbup: :wave: :clap:
I know very little about the Leopard (My Loss) although I do have a Challenger and an Abrams but my affections are directed towards WW2 armour,
Let us hope your contributions will add to the collective knowledge of modern armour to the rest of the Forum :thumbup:
Enjoy this place and please join in to the threads that take your interest.

The site allows up to 352kb. (1920 X 1080 pixels max). If you don't know how to reduce the size, you can mail the pics to yourself (that usually shrinks them) where you can specify the file size: usually small, medium, large- and, you've got to be kidding!! :D Then upload them to here. On a Mac you can use the "preview' tool to alter sizes. Windows has a similar tool.

Those are impressive! I know almost nothing about contemporary German AFVs, so I will be interested to learn from you. Given the help you received from Herr jhamm, I surmise that you have a club or just meet with others. Unfortunately, the others with AFVs nearby where I live all received theirs from me as gifts! The closest club is hundreds of KM away across the northern border of Wisconsin, and Canada doesn't need any more of us from the states moving in. ;)

P.S. Last weekend my sweetheart and I went to see the musical "Fiddler on the Roof." There was a line that amused me. The Russian (Ukranian?) Jews are forced out of their village. Some are going to emigrate to the US. A watchful mother reminds her youngest: "Behave yourselves! You're not in America yet!" :haha:

At the moment I’m alone with my models at all. I do all with the help of the Internet and my modeler experience of over 30 years.

A pair of fine looking, and unusual models, Frank :thumbup: That's 30 years well spent, I'd say. Model-making is a wonderful pastime.!. :wave:
By the way, one easy way to post Bilder here, is to use Imgur. It automatically re-sizes photos for you when you wish to post them here, and It's not hard to use. :thumbup:

These two models are only bought by me not build. The 30 years experience comes from other fields of modeling. These two models are my entry in tank modeling.
