Thanks for the info. One point if you are looking at accuracy....

Given your 1960s timeline the Centurion would be a Mk.5 and not a Mk.3....the purchased Mk.3s were quickly converted to the Mk.5s in the early 1950s.

The 1/72 scale kit would be appropriate for a Centurion Mk.5 from the LdSH(RC), 'C' Squadron, 4 Troop stationed at Canadian Forces Base Calgary up to 1965. In 1965 the Strathconas rotated to Germany until 1969 and used the Mk.11LRs.

Thanks for the expert information I will let Hobby Master know.

These actually are not kits - but rather already assembled metal Diecast with tampo ink printed markings.

Here was their previous release:

Hobby Master 1/72 Ground Power Series
HG3505
Centurion Mk. 5, Royal Canadian Dragoons
"C" company 2nd Platoon
Germany, 1958
