Made some progress this weekend. Doubt it will be done by 31 Dec..maybe built, but not painted.

This is what I had in mind when I started, I've since changed the radar a bit. It was too bulky with the lower housing (read: I couldn't figure a good a way to mount it happy.gif )

AFV Club Centurion Hull. This is the 67 IDF boxing, but you get parts to make it look more Canadian (headlights, front armour plate). You don't get the searchlight, turret basket, or LR fuel tanks in this boxing. Replaced the grab handles with .015 and .020 brass wire:

No turning back after cuts like this

Some .050 strip raises the roof to the right height. Lots of CA used here

Much sanding later..

General idea:

Next up will be fairing in the oversize Cent turret with the AMX DCA front

Need to figure out some details, like MBSGD, AMU, and of course turret stowage as the old Cent bins won't fit... or will they?
