Meng has released another Leopard, this time the modern Leopard 2A7, and here Kevin Brant builds this new kit.

Leo 2s are such amazing subjects to build, and I'm curious about exactly what went into the conversion from A6M to A7. Is the main gun barrel longer? Either way, this is sure to be an interesting addition to anyone's modern armour collection.

Thanks a lot, nice review. Just about to start mine. Only downside of this kit is that main gun in two halfs, other then that it's a great kit. Here's a great video on this subject https://v.qq.com/x/page/z0180561n9l.html?ptag=leopardclub_ca

As far as I know there is additional belly armor and other numerous less noticeable improvements, check this out http://leopardclub.ca/reviews/Meng/2A7/

The longer barrel was the main improvement from A5 to A6 standard...
