Decals for this kit are available here: http://leopardclub.ca/workshop/LW016/ and my own review is also on the Leopard Club site.

Can this conversion also used for the TAKOM offering of the LEO1A5?

Technically you should be able to. But issues might arise if the Takom turret and hull is different dimensionally from the Meng turret and hull. The prep of the turret and hull might also be a bit different in order to use the conversion parts.

Thanks a lot for the answer. As far as i notice the hull and turret are same in dimensions. The plus of the TAKOM turret is that you do not have to remove the add-on armour mounts on the turret sides, that is why i would prefer the TAKOM offering.
There is also the ITALERI offering which i should check of the dimensions.
