Well Chris at least you know what you will be doing for the next 10 years!!! :lolno:
That is one very complicated design and build, I shall watch this with great interest and if I win the lottery/lotto I think right after the heated swimming pool would be one of your Centurians :thumbup: :thumbup:
lovely detail as ever. shaun

I'd sell the Tamiya Pershing to own one of these.

Look forward to it - please add side skirts.

Looks like a mk3? 20pdr?

hi

thank you very much, i m happy you like it.
we puting now step by step the prototyp toghter, to finde points of inprovments and my be cut downs for the production line.

at the moment i cant say wich timline is posible for it, maybe thay will come problems i donst see at the moment ?!
the coal is the international model fair in dortmund next year in april. thare i want to show this tank :-)

skirts are already included ;-)

yes this is the 20pdr :-).

about the price.
this tank will be more expensive as my other Brits tanks.
the basic kit ist at the moment mor as twice as expensive as from cromel and comet. Because the comet is biger and do have some more details. But durig the build of the prototyp i hope i will be able to cut down it a bit.
Than the casted resin turret will be a big position on the list and the metal track. Wie will use the eleant track and this track is only aviable in metal so thats a big point to.

so counting all toghter he will be relativly expensiv in comparation to my other kits :-(.
