Leopard 2A6M CAN with Home-Made Barracuda MCS

Here is my latest project - a Leopard 2A6M CAN with Barracuda Mobile Camouflage System (MCS). Rather than springing for the aftermarket conversion, I wanted to try my hand a home made version. This uses painters tape and AK Interactive Mimetic Netting. Here is an in-progress shot …

… and here is how it looks, painted, but not weathered. More to follow!


It looks nice. Perhaps you should have stretched the net sections a bit more so they don’t look too flat.


Great point Olivier - thank you … I think I managed to do that in parts, but you are right, some areas look quite flat. Slat armour is coming next and then into a diorama and we’ll see how it turns out.

maybe to ruffle it a bit with a toothbrush. Even if it gets torn in places, it happened to the real thing as well. Convincing technique so far.

Love it - I had not thought of a toothbrush … thank you! I’ll give it a shot.
