This is Amusing Hobbies 1/35th scale Centurion AVRE from the first Gulf War.

A straight forward kit, no real dramas.

Tracks are individual link, click together and they are "de-sprued" so are simplicity itself.

Stowage is from the spares box as are the figures.

The driver is a Tamiya item, the other two are white metal figures who's origin completely escapes me!

Painted with Xtracolor enamels.

Excellent job. The painting of the tank and the figures is first class. Nice one.

Looks great and I had no idea that this beast was even a thing- not saying much though! Agree that the stowage work is excellent

Spot on, well done! Did you use the road wheels supplied in the kit? Which xtracolour did you use for the overall colour?

That looks the business and the figures really bring it to life.

Yes, all original kit parts.

The colour used was RAL8020 DAK/Afrika Korps Tan Yellow enamel

I didn't know you do AFVs too!

Yes, armour, aeroplanes, figures, sci fi, bit of a jack of all trades! :)

Lovely job, nicely dusty.

 

I wasn't aware the Centurion AVRE had been kitted, looks like a nice kit.

Great model, I love the subtle dusty appearance. The flag and the words on the barrel give it a lot of personality,

Cheers,

Ernst.
