Edit - I did ask Andrew if it was OK to share these pics - his response - feel free to share.





Any hints when he would make the conversion available?

Mal Hi,
Does this include the Clark board and the Radio?
It would not be bad news for some of us if they are not included,
Not that I would gain anything as my Centurion is already on order

Hi Jarndice
There is no mention of radio equipment in the listing, but looks like most of the cabling, engines, smoker, BB gun, turret drive etc are there - based on the pic

Price correction - "we made a careless mistake on the pricing yesterday... Name:  1f621.png
Views: 827
Size:  1.4 KB the 400.00 should be the final price ( including VAT 20% ) rather than the base price ( excluding VAT 20% ) . I have just corrected."

Also a new video -
- Upper hull

I'm advised that the Centurion container is to be delivered to the UK Haya warehouse Thursday & postage to occur Friday.

Thanks for the update! Do you know if kits are included in this shipment, or is it just RTR & pre-orders?

Hi King Tubby
Sorry, but I don't know.
One strange thing though - they mentioned that next week was Easter so unlikely to be delivered on Monday - except that's not for another week.
I'm hoping they just confused the dates, rather than posting being another week away?

Just got off the phone from Andrew (Haya) He told me my Centurion will be arriving on Monday or Tuesday,
He also took my order for a set of metal road wheels which will be included with the Centurion,
A really nice man and most helpful.

As promised my Centurion arrived today just after 1430, Opened the very big outer box and found a large plastic bag of metal wheels that I had ordered separately,
Then I opened the inner box to find a stack of sprues, Metal tow ropes, the barrel and decals and an instruction book,
The decals interestingly (to me) contains the flashes of the Berlin Brigade which I was attached too in those dark days although we flew helicopters around the wall not driving armour around it ,
Then separated the styrene container to reveal the Centurion,
Just a minor niggle, one side of the engine cover was lying loose in the plastic bag but a line of Superglue and all was well, Otherwise all good and it is now a time to settle down with the Tank and its sprues and the instruction book as well as the controller (4 AA Batteries not included) to learn all I need to know about this not so little beauty.

Interesting, so some assembly required?
Pictures?

Lots of luck with that one, Mal. Shaun does NOT post photos, and he still won't tell me why.

Hmm, guess I'll just have to put up with this one then? - https://www.rctankwarfare.co.uk/foru...ab5a97#p338788 -

Yeah, he doesn't post photos at rctw either. Or at least I've never seen one. But, that's up to him and it doesn't really matter to me if he posts photos or not. He's a pretty good modeler and his descriptions are really good, almost as good as a photo.

'his descriptions are really good, almost as good as a photo'
Given " A picture = 1000 words", that must be a lot of typing......

Default Haya Centurion Arrived Today

Arrived quickly from the UK in good shape. Some minor assembly needed, charge battery, test run and paint. That is it for now.

It will need the glacis up-armouring plate added, and I think the smoke grenade launchers and the FN MAG were post 73 additions (as a response to RPG and wire guided ATM teams) but otherwise it looks spot on!.

Are these stand alone upgrades or part of a new Centurion model?

Not 100% sure, but probably the same approach as his Chieftain upgrade - just the parts as separate purchase.
