Re: Centurion No 14

Hi sean, One things for sure, you will need a good area to work on one of these kits, I have quite a large workbench in my garage which i bought last year and have used it to build on (R/C model aircraft) Once you start unpacking the boxes you soon realise how much space you will need to build and n...

I now have the Centurion Training book (1946) Issued at Bovington RAC. Most is type written text with a few schematics here and there.
