Mike N Posted February 27, 2022 Share Posted February 27, 2022 (edited) For my second submission I'll be tackling Amusing Hobby's 1/35 Conqueror Mk II: The Conqueror was developed to defeat the latest Soviet tanks being fielded in the 1950's. After 20 Mk Is, production switched to the Mark II. In all, around 154 Conqueror heavy gun tanks were available for service. They were intended to complement the more numerous Centurions, but as the latter were upgraded, the need for the slow and heavy Conqueror was weakened. The arrival of the Chieftain finally brought the curtain down on this behemoth in 1966, just 8 years after the last Conqueror left the factory. A closer look at the contents: As I knew nothing about the real thing, I invested in the Tankograd publication on it: This has quite a few good photos as well as a history of the vehicle. I'm hoping this, being built straight from the box, will be my stress-reliever from the Nimrod AEW conversion - time will tell!
