  1. I have ordered this bad boy! Will complete after Apache build (please check it out) - Will discuss some possible paint schemes in the mean time.
  2. Without too much babbling, here is the final product. Went with a traditional paint job to pay homage to the original camo seen shortly after 1994, and a slight wink at the BAE Systems upgraded Chally. Those who wish to see the build process (WIP) and my other challenger projects: Enjoy the Photos! Edit; some more photos with the chally in its natural habitat. Well its 35x bigger than this models habitat but nature is the best diorama in my opinion A giant car chasing the challenger about. The paint job looking more accurate in the more usual British weather as opposed to the sunny pictures as seen below.
  3. Hi All, Just completed this Street Fighter. Thanks for viewing, for more photos of this tank click on the link : http://ptearsenal.blogspot.com/2020/03/challenger-ii-street-fighter.html
  4. Hey y'all this one is ready to be called done just got radio Aerials to add Thanks to all who commented on the WIP thread C+C welcome thanks for looking
  5. Hi all. Having a break from jets. And moved back to tanks. Just purchased the Tamiya. 1/35 challenger 2 Desertised but it has not got the. Standard pointy side armpit skirts in it. Not really wanting to buy another kit just for 2 parts. Can you buy separate. Anywhere ??? Help please. Thanks and stay safe at these times
  6. This looks tasty and like I said things have a habit of re inventing themselves....extra crown in that for somebody https://www.armyrecognition.com/weapons_defence_industry_military_technology_uk/new_challenger_2_streetfighter_main_battle_tank_mbt_of_british_army.html
  7. CHALLENGER 2 MBT 2nd Gulf War, 2001 Had this for a few years and with my current British trend, this one won the vote for my next build. (Apologies for the terrible picture quality here) Usual Tamiya fayre, plenty of parts and their standard easy fit. This build includes PE Set 35277 - PE Set for Challenger 2 comprising the Engine Grills and Name-Plate Typical Tamiya with no Sponson fillers - come on Tamiya, when will you learn??? Sponson Filler dimensions are 196mm long, 21.5mm wide of 0.5mm Plastic Card. The outside edge is shaped to fit just inside the outside of the upper hull. I have applied 60thou rod as a support and shall fill the gaps once dry. None of this will be seen in the final construction but I feel it helps to make the Hull a bit more rigid. Side Armour is the simplest of builds at just 3 parts each for the sides and 5 parts for the front section. Basics done on the rear hull and the Shrouded Exhausts installed. The terrible Tamiya plug grab handles will all need replacing on the rear deck for any semblance of detail. Next Time: Rear Hull, Front Hull detail Turret and Main Gun
  8. Here's my latest finished build, a 1/72 scale British Challenger 2 'Desert Version. Lovely little kit, highly recommended for a fun and trouble free build. The one piece tracks were very helpful and still look effective, in my opinion. Painted using a Tamiya rattle can and weathered with Citadel acrylics and Mig powders. I'm yet to make a base for it, so I posed it on a bag of sand! Excuse the photo, taken from my phone.
