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 Ordnance Q.F. 17 Pr. was produced from 1942 onwards, and was the best Allied anti-tank gun of WW-II, which was capable of destroying all German tanks at useful ranges. It was also by far the highest performing 76.2mm anti-tank weapon of WW-2.The flash produced when firing APDS ammunition earned the gun, and the later vehicles mounting it, the nickname ‘Firefly’. One standard WW-II towing vehicle was the Crusader Gun Tractor, and this excellent combination was deployed in Normandy after D-Day. Another very late war/Post war vehicle was the Albion FT15N low profile gun tractor. Post war the 17 Pr. was generally towed by turretless Stuart M3A3 tanks.


This comprehensive 1/35th scale model by David Jane and Derek Hansen depicts the late WW-II/Post War 6x6 tractor originally designed to tow the 17pdr Anti-Tank Gun. Produced from January 1945 onwards, just under 350 of these classic vehicles were produced, and at least 180 were re-designated as a field artillery tractors in 1949 for use with the 25pdr field gun.

A comprehensive resin set of 24 steel 1/35th scale 17pdr/77mm Ammunition boxes in two styles (12 of each type) suitable for Sherman Firefly, 17pdr anti-tank gun, Achilles, Archer, A30 Challenger, Comet, and Centurion., master patterns by Derek Hansen.
