I have just finish my second 1:35 Centurion Mk 5 model from Amusing. I made it as Danish late Centurion with laser range finder, and night vision equipment. Painted with Hataka A286 Danish Green (SK/80).

105mm L7 gun from a Dragon kit.
Scratch build laser and nigth vision. (PZB 200 from Meng Leo 1A3)
Asuka/Tasca 0,50 Heavy machine gun.
IR projector from Meng Leopard 1A3.
Barracuda camo net from AK No AK8059.
Scratch build turret basket.

Lovely work Kjeld. Just 2 x questions:

a. When did this version come into service?

b. Where did you obtain the markings (decals)?

I might try and make one of these one day.

Really nice work.


Hey Brian BootsDMS

The 90 modified Centurion Mk. 5/2 DK went into service in September 1985, used until all medium tank units in Denmark got the Leopard 1A5 in 1994, the last 70 reserve Centurion´s was scrapped in 1999.
I used the Echelon T35008 Leopard 2 “Fearsome cats of the European Nations” for all the decals.

Best regards

Thanks very much indeed Kjeld.


That looks very nice!
