I finally finished the model that I was working on for about six years. Of course most of that time the model spent half built on a shelf. The actual build time could probably be "compressed" to a few weeks, but various factors made me abandon the project temporarily a few times. Anyway, it's finally done.
The model is based on AFV Club RAAC Centurion Mk 5/1 kit with dozer blade parts from their Centurion Mk 5 kit. Indi link tracks also came from AFV Club. I used a lot of various resin detail parts from Firestorm Models, white metal idler wheels, storage items and decals from Mouse House, PE parts from Eduard and Voyager and M1919 MG barrel from RB Models (shortened slightly, as their part is too long). I used small items from other sources as well (radio from Legend, antenna from Live Resin etc.). I also scratch built a lot of details.
Please note that it was never my plan to represent a specific RAAC tank. I always focus on engineering aspects in my models, so my goal was to include all the modifications Australians made to their tanks in Vietnam, not to be strictly historically accurate for any specific vehicle at a specific moment during the war. While I used Mouse House decals for the "Contractor" dozer tank, I have no idea what modifications that particular tank had, so my model is unlikely to represent that specific tank properly. I also used a little artistic license applying the markings, as I moved the bull head symbol from the left turret stowage box to the dozer blade center. Some other tank(s) had similar (although white) symbol in this location, but probably not this tank. I painted the turret stowage box as one replaced with a new spare part still in British DBG color, so putting the Aussie symbol on it didn't fit my concept.
Any comments and questions are welcome.
