Blog page - how to use?

I can't seem to get to grips with the blog site - I only seem to be able to access the home page subjects - gun mount, turret, and sprocket/idler details. I had thought builders could/would post their progress reports on a blog - so are there any more articles on there - and if so, how do I access t...

Re: 6 new jerry cans - on Ebay

Well, they have arrived safely - and quite quickly from deepest China, and I must say, I am quite impressed with them!! They ARE plastic, of course, but not heavy - so hollow, I reckon. They are really well finished - no flashing to remove - and finished in a distressed used condition. Size 77mm hig...

Re: Wanted Serious Modellers guide to Canadian Centurion Tan

I don't think your details of the book make sense - not to me, anyway.
You normally search using the book ISBN number - do you have this?

metal mesh supplier

Just received a sheet of this mesh - I THINK it is steel, seems heavy for aluminium.

Look for other items - they do a range of sizes - and well packaged.

Supporting removed turret inverted?

The servos for recoil and barrel raising have got rather sluggish on my Cent recently, so I would like to remove the turret, and support it upsidedown to investigate - has anyone details of a jig to prevent damage, please? As I didn't build the tank, I don't want to damage anything whilst turret is ...

Re: 6 new jerry cans - on Ebay

All comments noted - thanks guys.
I'm not looking for minute detail - nor to pay loadsa dosh - just something to populate the turret basket I'm about to make for my Cent.

I'll post again when/if they arrive!!

6 new jerry cans - on Ebay

Have sent away to deepest China for this set of new "distressed" German jerry cans :-

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/131211666236? ... EBIDX%3AIT

I paid US$23.99 - about £16 with free postage - seemed a very good deal to me.

Recoil system and track tension questions

Hi gang - Mike Wyatt here - just bought a completed Cent from Martin Taylor - great. The gun recoil system seems very lethargic, and not working properly. Can I undo the two bolts either side of the mantlet and withdraw the mechanism for inspection - or must I remove the turret to get access to it? ...

Re: Centurion Turret Basket

Hi Mark - Mike Wyatt from Somerset here - a new Cent owner.

That basket looks great - just one question - how does it attach to the turret?

I have just bought Martin Taylors' Cent which is a "blank canvas", so looking for simple detail upgrade ideas!!!
