About Darren Baker (CMOT)
FROM: ENGLAND - SOUTH WEST, UNITED KINGDOM

I have been building model kits since the early 70ís starting with Airfix kits of mostly aircraft, then progressing to the point I am at now building predominantly armour kits from all countries and time periods. Living in the middle of Salisbury plain since the 70ís, I have had lots of opportunitie...

Sorry Tom I will be working all over that weekend. The only thing at the moment I know I will be at is the Tank Fest on the 25/26 June at Bovington.

hi its the 183mm gun on a mk 8 gun tank hull not the mk5 hull it was built on.

Michael thank you for the additional information. I really like the look of this tank as something really appeals about its look, and that look really projects power.

Darren, I am amazed at the commitment and the work you and the Armorama staff provide here. Please keep up the great work! - Jeff

I have AA's Conway conversion, but I think this one would be a great addition to the Centurion collection. Any chance you could get shots of the turret top at some future date?

Sorry Rob I would need to be about 16 ft tall to do that bud.

I'd agree here and also with what Darren pointed out, the staff here aren't paid, but take the time and trouble to bring something of value to the site. First you got to get there, then pay to get in, then take the pictuers, then come home, upload them, resize them and then upload them into an article and await publication. i don't know how many walkabout I've uploaded, but it's a fair few. Somethimes one or two people will say thank you and that's always nice but you can bet you bottom dollar if you make a mistake in the naming of the vehicle someone will spot it straight away . That's good and I've personally changed a few that I got wrong, but you go on the infomration you have either read or been given, unless you know the specific vehicle. Adding hugh amounts of time into research is not something we can all do, or have the time to do. So yes, point out an error and it will get fixed but do it in a nice way, it costs you nothing, does it? Darren that's an ulgly looking beast for sure. Do you know if any of these ever got past the testing stage? Thanks Al

I have found some info in a Centurion book and it would appear to have been a flop as it suffered the same issues as the KV2 when it came to firing, by this I mean level ground and forward facing only. I was told by someone who trialled this vehicle that one ended up on its back when firing, how true that is I have no idea.
