No need to argue. If you want a fun shake and bake that builds up beautifully and ends with a gorgeous model of something that looks a lot like a Leopard 2A6 then go for the Tamiya. If you want a more challenging build with an accuracy that is a little bit closer to the real thing, go Border if you don’t mind the dodgy instructions. If you want a more challenging build again with a higher level of accuracy again, then go RFM.
Its not hard.
Choosing Tamiya doesn’t give everyone else the right to look down their noses at you as a “knowledge signaller” (like virtue signaling but with more rivets).
I do wonder how many of the self appointed knowledge signaler modeling Gods we see online, having coated off everyone for choosing a model they do not consider “worthy” actually get around to building their much-vaunted alternatives.
Frankly if someone is going to disparage my choice of Tamiya etc and tell me their choice is superior, then build the model and lets see - show us all. Until then its just “look at me” knowledge signaling, isnt it?
This coming from a guy who loves Leopards. I have the Tiger Models 2Evo, 2Revo II, the Italeri 2A5, the old Tamiya 2A6, the Hobbyboss Dutch 2A6NL and Spanish 2E, the Meng 2A7+, have just finished the Border 2A5/6 and is currently working on the RFM Canadian 2A6 as well. I’ll probably pick up the Border Ukrainian 2A6 in due course. Yes it is possible to have all these kits of the same subject and to appreciate them all.
