This comprehensive 1/35th scale conversion set designed by Derek Hansen converts the AFV Club Centurion kit* to depict one of the very early prototype A41 vehicles. Under the codename ‘Operation Sentry’ six A41 prototypes were sent to Germany in May 1945 for extensive troop trials, and this conversion represents a typical vehicle from that trial.


This comprehensive 1/35th scale conversion set by Rob Tearle converts the TAMIYA Churchill kit* into the Assault Vehicle Royal Engineers (AVRE) Mk-VII. AVRE’s and Churchill ‘TOAD’ Flails (C066) were designed to clear all obstacles ahead during an armoured assault against fixed defences


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)


Replacement 1/35th scale semi-flexible resin track for replacing the ‘rubber band’ or poorly detailed injection moulded track supplied with many Centurion model kits, such as Tamiya, Academy or Legends etc. This set contains lengths of pre-assembled links.If you are making an Israeli Centurion, or Centurion variant you may with to consider our IDF modified set T70 ‘Golan’ track as an option

This set provides the parts and materials to convert an AFV Club Centurion (most versions*) to a Mk3 with the early long hull. This set does not include the AFV Club donor kit, this must be purchased separately.

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 shape of what was to become one of the most successful and widely exported tanks. The next logical step was to up-gun to the proven QF 20 pdr. 83.4mm. Ammunition stowage was modified and the gun mounting changed to accept the larger gun.

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.
