CROMWELL TANK + SCRATCH BUILT CENTAUR TURRET 28 mm


This vehicle is from Warlord games and is a resin model,I also decided to tconstruct a scratch built Centaur turret -for more info on scratch building see ARVE  Turret,Churchill Trailer and Flame Projector   - to be used interchangeably with the chassis allowing more choices from the Chain of Command Support List. 

The Centaur Turret is carved from a block of MDF and  encased with thin  sheets of plastic styrene found in hobby stores. I also used bits of plastic sprue from Infantry figures as well as brass rods and Green Stuff. The trooper in the turret is a Late war Brit,used Green stuff to sculpt a beret and head set.

So now I have both a basic Cromwell or Centaur turret ready to match up with the chassis.

The Centaur does not have a hull MG, I construct a pile of  gear and netting to cover the MG. It fits over the hull MG and is a snug fit,easily removed or added when required.
