This 1/35th scale resin accessory set allows the detailing of the drivers position inside AFV Club Centurion kits. The all resin set designed by Rob Tearle includes side and rear bulkheads, drivers seat, controls and fittings and is suitable for all early marks of Centurion up to Mk-5. A detailed replacement roof panel is also included


This comprehensive 1/35th scale conversion set in resin and etched Brass with decals was designed by Derek Hansen and converts the AFV Club Centurion kit* to depict one of the first production Mk-I (A41*) vehicles. Following on from the 1945 ‘Operation Sentry’ trials Centurion went into series production with the Mk-I, and this conversion represents a standard production vehicle


The Centurion ARV Mk-2 was the standard British Armoured Recovery Vehicle (ARV) from 1956 onwards and some served during the Gulf War of 1990/91 with the final vehicle leaving service in 1995. It’s flexibility, reliability, power and comprehensive recovery equipment made it one of the best ARV’s of it’s era. Most of these ARV’s were converted from gun tanks resulting in two distinct versions; with ‘long’ hull (Based on Centurion Mk-1/2) or ‘short’ hull (based on Centurion Mk-3/5).


A full 1/35th scale Modern British Centurion skirting plate system with hangers, plates and camouflage net tie-downs in etched brass with instructions.This set covers the Standard Centurion gun tanks from Mk-1 onwards which had the regular layout of plates and tie-down hoops and no ammunition loading hatch. They are also suitable for Centurion special variants (with the exception of AVRE)

After successful troop trials during and after ‘OP SENTRY’ with Centurion A41, further recommendations were made that culminated in the Mk2 with one piece cast turret incorporating the 17pdr Gun. This turret and its stowage arrangement gave the characteristic shape to what was to become one of the most successful and widely exported tanks of the post war period.

The master model by Rob Tearle and Derek Hansen contains super-detailed turret and hull fittings, comprehensive and easy to fit etched brass, turned aluminium gun barrel and full colour decals with an easy to follow colour instruction manual for assembly. Based on the AFV club Centurion as a donor kit this great value, easy to build set provides an accurate and unique model of the early stage of Centurion development.

Cam net stowage is provided along with cable drum and smoke discharger mountings for the turret sides, and an etched brass set includes bin padlocks, rear track-guards, drivers visor, wading fittings and other small details.

You will need an AFV Club Centurion kit as a basis for this conversion.
