Revell releases update

Revell had three 1/72 armor releases planned for the second half of 2011, namely the Spz 1A3 Marder (No.03113), the Leopard II A6M (No.03180) and the M1A1(HA) Abrams (No.03112). The Marder and Leopard II A6M where sceduled for release last month. The Marder is released one and a half week ago with the following boxart:

The Leopard II A6M is not released yet and thus is delayed. On the website of the IPMS germany photo's of the testshots are shown however so the release date can't be far away. A few shots of the sprues are shown here.
The first sprue contains most parts of the turret:

The second sprue has parts of the turret and hull:

The third sprue contains parts of for the wheels and track:

And the last sprue contains parts specific for the A6M version like the longer barrel and antimine armor for the underside of the hull:

More pictures can be found here.

Form as far as I can see the Leopard II A6M is a brand new model and not the A4/A5 version with some extra parts. It seems that it is not possible to build the newwest IIE version which is a bit of a dissapointment.

More information as soon as I have it.
