This is an interesting former gate guardian, now resting at Bovington, (awaiting restoration?). Despite the joke thread title I believe it a British Centurion? If anyone fancies a real weathering challenge, feel free to use these as a reference. Have fun!

Could be a T55 or the Chinese copy used by the Iraqi's
Excellent. Thank you kindly.
I agree with my learned friend Steve.Though not really my areas of interest as its far too modern !
Top man. I rather fancy having a go at it as is, crisp packet and all! Love the shape. Maybe, maybe...

Lovely job sir. Really like some of the weathering effects you've got there ;)
I added a Miniart T-55 to my watch list, and the seller's sent me a blooming offer now! Damn thise people tempting me to spend more money. I think I'll grab it thogh :tears-of-joy: Looks a lovely kit, with five decal sets and PE parts. Can't refuse really can I?

My t55 is miniart.You'll need plenty of patience and a good pair of tweezers for a miniart t55,about 650 parts for the tracks alone!and some fiddly pe.
