Modelling the Challenger 1 and 2 MBT and Variants

Modelling the Challenger 1 and 2 MBT and Variants cover


Since 1983, the firepower, protection and stock action of the Challenger Main Battle Tanks has been instrumental to the success of British forces. In addition to the familiar gun tanks, the Challenger family encompasses the Rhino Armoured Repair & Recover Vehicle (ARRV) and the new Trojan Armoured Engineer Vehicle (AEV). As the tank is well represented by major kit manufactures in both 1/72 and 1/35 scales, this book covers a wide range of the Challenger family. Each chapter presents the model using colour photos to illustrate scratch-building, painting and weathering techniques.
