  • Trumpeter's Leopold

    I'm looking for pictures of Trumpeter's 1/35th scale Leopold model, preferably pictures of the trees all laid out. I appreciate the help!

    I don't think anyone here has one.

      That's too bad, I hear it's quite the kit.

          Nag nag nag.

          First the disclaimer: My wife insists that I mention any images containing unfinished walls, plastic covering and/or drywall dust is due to the remodel and...bah bah bah.

          OK, the kit is Trumpeter's 1/35 scale K5(E) Leopold rail gun. The real deal weighed in at 230 tons including its 24 wheel carriage and could throw a 550 pound 280mm shell an estimated 11 miles.

          The box this kit came in is huge and to help gage the size I used something most of you can relate to:



          The kit features 1140 parts including photo etched and metal, as well as 18 sections of railway:



          As for frieghtshaker's want to see trees spread out, sorry Scott. Since I won't get to this beast for 8 months to a year I decided to only remove one tree from the plastic bag. The parts are pretty clean with no flash at all:



          The instruction book is 44 pages and I have decided to build the kit in the cross-track and firing position. And estimate the amount of display space needed will be an area roughly 4x5 feet.



          As a postscript, when my daughter ordered this for me the salesman asked if she wanted a gallon of glue to go with it. At first she took him serious.

                    Not sure if they do, but if so I'll wager the price is about double.

                      Indeed they do. I belive its on your favorite of all online model store

                      I can't say I would want to build this kit. Looks like you need extrmem patience and be close to expert... my patience is usually thin, I don't think I'm the king of models...
