Challenger-2 Enhanced Armour (IRAQ 2005)
This set is an easy to construct, scale thickness representation of Stand-off or Bar-Armour and will allow you to see your completed model unlike many plastic and resin alternatives from other manufacturers.
A comprehensive resin and etched brass conversion set by Rob Tearle for 1/35th scale Challenger-2 (Desertised) kits. During operations in IRAQ in 2005 the already well protected Challenger-2 MBT underwent a significant armour update for urban and convoy operations in order to protect from Rocket Propelled Grenade (RPG) weapons.
This set includes revised hull armour and new turret armour packages and mountings. Four etched brass frets and straight brass wire are provided to form the turret/hull side and rear enhanced bar armour grids and mounting plates. Replacement exhaust outlets and mounting plates may also be also included. This extensive set is available in 3 slightly different forms depending on the ‘donor’ Challenger-2 kit to be converted.
This set is for the TAMIYA CHALLENGER 2 (Desertised),
This product is a Conversion set and a donor plastic kit is needed to make the vehicle shown in the images.
