Development of this British AFV commenced in 1943 and it was introduced in 1945, too late to see combat in WWII. However, it remained in production until the 1960s and remained in frontline service right through till the 1980s. Its combat debut was in the Korean War and a total of 4,423 Centurions were produced in 13 marks until eventually replaced by the Chieftain. The 45.5-ton Centurion Mk 1 was the original variant of this tank. Its sloped front glacis had 76mm of armor while the turret had 152mm-thick armor. It was armed with a proven QF 17pdr Mk 3 gun and a coaxial 20mm Polsten cannon as a secondary armament. Given that this is the first Centurion variant in Dragon's 1/72 range, this kit of the Tank Medium A45, Centurion Mark 1 is obviously a brand new tooling. Detail is beautifully rendered and no corners are cut in reproducing this important British postwar tank. The 17pdr gun and 20mm Polsten cannon are well represented mounted in the turret. Customers have been anticipating such a kit for a long time, but now the wait is finally over!

Review FOR Tamiya 1/35 35358 Wespe "Italian Front"

BOX ART 

Tamiya has just released a German Self-Propelled Howitzer Wespe "Italian Front", a new addition to the original product, the German version of the Nuremberg Toy Show, with a new doll and semi-connected track. Here, we will get a preview of this product. Please note that this product is an injection product for testing purposes, not a production product, and may differ from actual production products

The most interesting thing is the fact that dolls have been added which have improved much more nowadays. Whether you are confident about making dolls, you can often add dolls to these open top cars

This product is also good quality doll. However, there is a feeling that it is a little soft because it is the current situation.

 Suspension and road wheel parts are conventional parts.

Includes semi-connected tracks, modified sprocket wheels and a new runner with MG34.  

 Semi-linked tracks are well-deflected. 

 You can see from the design method that the existing part is the lower body, but it is also an old product. 

 The manual for the current events is printed on plain paper. 
This product is coming soon.

Highly recommended for purchase
The quality of the kit is very high
Details of the kit are very good
Accuracy is indeed at a very high level and looks completely natural
