Royal Army of Oman Challenger 2

Hi all,

I’m hoping to do a conversion of a 1/72 Trumpeter Ch2 into an Omani Ch2, I have the Osprey book which has some great details on the tank but I’m struggling to find good reference pictures, I’m wondering if anyone knows of any good walkarounds?

Thank you,
Shane

Hi,
this one looks quite different from the basic Ch2.
See here:

No walk around actually, but some side views.

Andreas,

Thank you kindly for this much appreciated. Yes the rear of the hull requires an extensive amount of work, although it shouldn’t be overly complicated I expect.

Hi Shane,

note that the Oman CR2 obviously has the CR1 tracks and side skirts which the british CR2 never had. So you do need sprockets, tracks and skirts from Revell Germany´s CR1 or you go for aftermarket tracks (no idea if these exist in 1/72).

Andreas,

Thanks for the advice, I have a trumpeter Ch1 so I might see if the tracks on this will fit. I don’t think any aftermarket are available in 72 scale but I’m not entirely sure :thinking::man_shrugging:t2: and frankly it might be a cheaper option to use the ROG or trumpeter kit tracks and sprocket.

Hi again,
another two pictures here:
