The kit, if you are a new reader, is the AFV Club 1/35 RAAC Centurion Mk 5/1 (Kit No. 35100) with the addition of Eduard PE and some lead wire for e.g. the searchlight cable. The spares box has also been raided for what would otherwise have been an empty turret basket. This kit has a very high parts count – like Dragon – and is very detailed OOB. I highly recommend it.
The assembly stage (apart from 2 radio antenna, which go on last) is now finished and the painting and weathering has begun. This is my first attempt at the red/brown found in some parts of Vietnam, and my phone camera makes it appear more vivid than it actually is. Lots more washes to add yet, as well as other fun stuff.
Oh! I ran out of tow cable, so they won’t be added until next weekend.
