RAAC CENTURIAN MK 5/1


1/25 Centurian Mk 5/1 converted from the Tamoya Mk 3


by Jeremy King


Introduction

This is the old Tamiya 1:25 scale MK3 converted to Australian MK5/1 standard.   All conversion parts less the B type barrel are scratchbuilt.  The 100 Gal fuel tank was subsequently used as the Master for the Mouse House conversion kit, the barrel is a test shot of this kit.  Kit is finished in the last scheme worn by Australian Centurions in 1977 just prior to the types replacement by Leopard 1.  The vehicle is depicted in fact as it was seen on its last deployment to Puckapunyal Range prior to retirement.  Post these photos being taken the 30 Cal commanders machine gun has been fitted, again available through Mouse House Armour.
