Happy new everyone. just a little update . i lost the MOJO so just going to build a few models then come back to a model i really want to finish . but got to get the mojo back and interest into the Centurion. thanks ossie
Thank you everyone for your nice comments , i have just picked up a model i started some time ago and will try and build that . why have i lost a MOJO easy really . to much of a good thing really , i craved for model making as it was my way of keeping touch with my love of tanks , but when you work on them 5 days a week and around them its to much of a good thing really , even going to the tank museum i find a chore some times. STRV will return or might even become a AVRE 165mm unsure yet . But will be built thanks you all for the encouragement Ossie
Hi everyone. so today I decided I would get the Centurion down. what did I find well having looked at the Mk5 turret I built it does not fit the hull , so did some trimming and then decided to measure the Tamiya Kit , oh dear its short by 2 mm between no 2 and no3 road wheels , two options , build a hew hull I might actually do that or just forget about the error but the turret touches the drivers hatches when rotated . not good , so need to think next option Ossie
Got a bit of my Mojo back and have started to finish the turret , I am starting to work on the top plate and very shortly I must decide if I wish to build another version other then a STRV102 due to the internal fittings etc. so my next job is to complete the top sand fro start add the loading port and the internal stowage. hope you like the small update .
been along time been busy getting married, new job and then promotion and moving so model making got delayed except figure painting . But due to lock down I have got the Centurion back out and started work on it again . had to reshape the right hand side of the turret as well .
so I spend about two hrs a day on the Centurion Currently and I am building the Gun sight Currently but thought I just show you what I have done so far. I know its only a small update but we finally getting there . hope you like it . Ossie
