A 1/35th scale resin cast figure depicting a Canadian/British Tank Commander 1944

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 conversion comprises revised glacis (thinner armour), drivers, and top deck plates, transmission deck and extended hull rear along with A41 centre suspension units, final drive housings and 20” pattern prototype track. Also included are revised hull bins, towing cable assemblies, 17 Pr. gun cradle and stowed 20” track.

The turret is an all new design of cast/welded construction mounting the 17 Pr. gun with auxiliary 20mm Polsten Cannon, rotating ARV cupola and opening hatches for gunner and loader. Cam net stowage is provided and an etched brass set includes bin padlocks, rear track-guards, drivers visor and other small detail fittings.

The 17 Pr. gun barrel is provided in turned aluminium and a set of decals is provided which includes the Operation Sentry trials logos. Many thanks to the RAC Tank Museum at Bovington where the only surviving trials vehicle (P9) is on display.* AFV35106, AFV35100 & AFV35122

This product is a Conversion set and a donor plastic kit is needed to make the vehicle shown in the images.

I just bought three of the AFV Club Centrions to do this conversion. So, yes I would like to purchase three of you conversion sets. I have already built your full resin kit of this subject. One of the best resin kits I have ever built!
