I would like to get some new models, probably not now, as I'm leaving next Sunday/Saturday. I was wondering about how good are Hobby Boss's Leopards in 1:35. I read the quality is similar to Trumpeter's offering...
Be sure that I won't hesitate getting the T-34 in 1:48 with interior though!
What do you think?

Basically it's a bit of a mixed bag. The T-34's are quite nice and they come with full interior. You want to stay away from the Shermans.

In 1/35, the Leopards are not on the same standard as Tamiya. I haven't built them yet but am interested in the Strv 122 and the Leo 2A5DK.

Roderick has a build of the Strv 122 here
