I'll need to get the bench cleared of the F-16 and M8 Greyhound first.
With 21 sprues, I'm going to need the room :ohmy

I made a start on the Centurion tonight. There's a fair bit of plastic to get through:

The suspension bogies come with real springs and actually works:

Clean up of the parts is minimal and the fit is very good. This is where I got to tonight. The wheels come with separate rubber tires, which means painting the wheels and bogies separately, then adding the tires.

That's a nice start Paddy and I like the wheel/tyre assembly.

Cheers, Del.

Thankfully this GB doesn't end until next year, because I think its going to take me that long to finish this! :ohmy
Things that other kits have as single pieces, come in five parts here! :angry:
The spare track holder is two pieces and has to be carefully joined:

The spare track itself is molded in a different type of plastic and its beautifully detailed, only problem is, all the beautiful detail can't be seen when installed but instead the side with the ejector pin marks faces out!!! :bang:

I'm not actually complaining as its a fantastic kit. The detail in the parts is outstanding. An example is the sprocket casing. The cast texture is amazing:

This is where I've got to tonight:

Thanks, Mac.
I finished the lower hull and I've made a start on the upper hull. I also got the fenders built and glued into place:

I'm going to send for these guys to crew it

And if I can be bothered, I'll make up a small diorama base for it as well.
