Centurions. "It's not just a British thing"

Cool! I think it’s really interesting if not comical vehicle.

The massive KV-2 style turret, and massive 183 mm gun looks hilarious on the centurion hull

Don’t get me wrong, I know accuracy is not the strong suit of a lot of manufacturers and I am not scared of a little (lot) of work. I still have a few HB in the stash and recently bought more, the Rooikat one of them. Just not my manufacturer of choice based on past experience.

Maybe their newer kits are better, but the older ones just show lack of attention:

  • Their SdKfz 254 is out of proportion at the rear and lacks correct detail - it is like they left out a whole sprue for the frame bracing and other detail at the rear and all the tool clamp positions are wrong, etc. -
  • Their GMC truck cab is out of proportion and noticeably so to the naked eye and generally the whole kit lacks fine detail.
  • The upper hull of their CV9035 is way off accurate and the wheels have a fictional patterning.
  • The Dana, well that was a virtual rebuild it was so bad.

But then again, maybe I expect too much these days!

Proposed group build for Centurions . There are a metric ton of Centurion kits mostly from AFV.
The rules for the build are simple , any Centurion as long as it is not in British markings . All of the commonwealth countries are acceptable. The idea is Centurions in foreign service .
Start date would be August 1st 2021 to August 1st 2022 . That is a year and a day.
Aftermarket and scratch build is acceptable .
The image shows a list of commonwealth countries.


Hi Chris,
I moved this from the Uncategorized forum to the Staging one. Can you review and edit this proposal according to this format please? How to Start New Group Builds / Campaigns


Since a Roman Centurion would be allowed, am I correct assuming an :israel: Israeli or :jordan: Jordanian Centurion would be allowed despite neither being Common Wealth members?

Hobby Boss? I’ve heard one modeler joke that’s basically “remedial training school” for Trumpeter employees on job performance write up.

Absolutely it is

Someone please help me fix the format for this . I cant even find the correct template.
I dont want this to get cancelled so take pity on the village idiot please .

I presume only the person that started the thread can edit it, Maybe I can help. Can you click on edit in your first post then copy the screen image and paste it?

Peter I tried that and was unsuccessful.

Chris, if you find you can’t edit it to the correct format, (which fingers crossed one of the moderators may help with) you could try the nuclear option… As the actual campaign/group build hasn’t actually started, you could possibly delete the whole thread and start afresh following @staff_Jim guidelines and templates … At least if you do that you will know you’ve followed the correct format and will know for future builds. Loads of people have already said they will join in on the build so you won’t lose anyone… They will follow… Just a thought… John

John I appreciate that . Yes I have considered going thermo nuclear on the thread
I am unable to get the template to work for me .

Maybe it will take a moderator with more access to fully edit the thread to the proper format…
I just started to do a draft campaign to see how easy it was and once you go in the staging area, and click new topic the box opens with all the sub headings like name , event leaders, build rules/details etc opens up pre loaded and you just type in between the brackets… Go nuclear if all else fails :+1:

Looks like I am going nuclear later

Chris, before you do, and so you have a general idea of the guidelines and rules etc, have a look at how I did the Star Wars alternative cam group build.
Star Wars Universe Alternative Camo Schemes Group Build

You’ve probably already seen how others do the first post in a group build thread, but hopefully it may be useful having a look through another one for ideas etc… Good luck :crossed_fingers:

The topic you want to reference for this is the guidelines topic. The template topic is linked this, but honestly just creating a new topic in staging gives you the entire template to start with (which you can copy and paste into the above). Which I will do, because I am such a sweet guy. :slight_smile:
