This photo etch detail set from Eduard is part of the Big Ed series of photo etch sets and is available directly from Sprue Bros

The Leopard 2A6 is an evolution of the A5 and is one of the best main battle tanks in the world and is in service with Germany, Canada, Greece, Netherlands, Portugal and Spain.

This photo etch detail set includes 4 frets of photo etch and they are all for the exterior of the Leopard 2A6.  There are no parts for the interior, but considering you can't see the interior with the turret in place....this makes good sense.  You get  a massive variety of parts including parts to detail the underside of the hull, the drive wheels, engine cover screens, shovel and pick axe tie down straps, and even bullets for the machine gun plus much, much more.  Many of these parts are very small detail parts that will an an exceptional level of added detail to your Leopard.
