Scorpion Miniature Models released an interesting conversion for Challenger 1 & 2. Check it out!
SMM3531 - Challenger 1 and 2 Driver Training Tank (CTT and DTT)

In 1988, the British Army ordered 17 Challenger Training Tanks (CTT) based on Challenger 1 from Vickers Defence Systems. These were the first ever purpose-built training tanks for the British Army. With the success of the CTT, the concept was carried over to the Challenger 2, now called Challenger Driver Training Tank (DTT).

This kit is designed for use with either Tamiya Challenger 1 or Challenger 2 kit, or any Trumpeter/Airfix Challenger 2 kit. It is NOT suitable for the RFM kit which has a different turret ring.

This is a news feed about Challenger CTT and DTT, not Leopard. However, as everyone is going on about the awful Airmodel vac form which is no longer available, only one seems to know about my other driver trainer product - you guessed it - a Leopard 1: LINK

The Leo2 DTT uses the same side walls (the part with the windows) as the earlier Leo1 cab, so my CAD work on the Leo1 cab will serve as a starting point, but the ballast ring and lots of other details are different, so it will be a while before I can get it done as there are other things ahead of it in the pipeline. But I hope to do it for my own modelling, so Mike may yet have it on offer eventually... In the meantime, enjoy the Chally cab!

Correct, but I answered someones' question, with a link to the Leopard Club cab. I have seen Scorpions' work at a Duxford show, really nice work, so it might be denting my disposable income soon
