WIP 1/72 Centaur part 4

Hi guys, what a right royal pain in the ass, but its starting to take shape, for anyone new to this project, this is a Royal Marine support group Centaur conversion of the 1/72 Revell Cromwell, decals are from Bison, the turret decals were a nightmare, and took about 2hrs on their own, the decal instruction advised to cut off all the detail from the turret and apply, however to get them to fit I cut them up and placed them around the turret detail, I had to seal them with a gloss coat, it was worth it in the end, I think they look effective, I will have to add the odd number and line with free hand, ignore any gloss effect, the next step will be a matt coat, then onto weathering, all comments welcome.

Thanks guys, this tank is actually going to a follower of my blog as a prize in a competition I ran, incidentally, the yellow vehicle in the header of my blog was also given away.
Thanks Carlos, good to hear I have provided inspiration, any questions you may have, feel free to ask.

Really Great Job!

Danl,

Your works are inspiring me to convert one of my Cromwells into a Centaur. Congratulations! BTW, did you convert yourself or used a kit made by someone?


Off Topic: Dear Carlos, If you want to change ideas with me about figures and sci-fi, I may be of some help. Please drop me some lines.


Happy modeling, Ricardo
