Leopard 2A6 Military Papercraft is my first full camouflaged model. I choose 3 color camo pattern (green, black, and brown). This is preety difficult and need so many photos as references because I want to make it just like the real camo pattern. 3 months for texturing this model, it might be faster if i'm a realy "free" man and focusing my time to do texturing. It had took so long because i have to manage my time during my study, project, familly and other hobbies :D, but i really enjoy it. In the last 2 weeks i have tested this model and make sure that this Leopard 2A6 Military Papercraft is possible to build. After couple of months, this model is ready to download freely, please enjoy and happy building!!
