For those interested in small scale subjects

Very Neat. I got one of these via a model club member who won it in the xmas raffle...  and didn't want it.

the Gulf War Scheme appealed, but some searching turned up the need for added side Chobham armour, added reactive armour at the front, added fuel tanksand the side bins were not very good....  so since the model has these features I presume they are scratch built?   Looks great. :goodjob:

Thanks Troy. This kit (Challenger 1 KFOR) comes with the side armour arrays as well as the frontal ERA, and markings that include one Granby example. The mounting provisions for the side armour are somewhat problematic so I did some scratch built additions to provide a more realistic standoff. Here’s a link to the kit I used:

Didn't spot that one.

To be honest,  the kit I have  was a freebie, and I just spotted the Granby options while doing some searches.....  I was very kindly sent the spare decals for the Revell rebox of the Matchbox Challenger by @TimJ when I asked if they were spare 

which are for an ex Granby tank now at Bovington, which as is in the museum lacks the additions...   which will do me,  but interesting to know.

 

Look forward to seeing more of your work.

 

cheers
