1/35 scale model kit produced by Amusing Hobby.

For a short time in the storied history of the Centurion Main Battle Tank (MBT), a heavily armed self-propelled gun (SPG) variant was entertained as the FV4005 "Stage 2". This vehicle utilized the existing chassis and hull superstructure of the Centurion MBT mated to a fully-enclosed, 360-degree traversing turret housing a 183mm (7.2") Howitzer main gun (the BL 7.2-inch field howitzer). 


The FV4005 program began in 1951 with development stemming into mid-1955. However, the initiative fell to naught and was ended in 1957. A sole example of the FV4005 Stage 2 went on to be preserved outdoors on the grounds of the famous Tank Museum in Bovington, England. 

Paint and glue for model not included in kit, will need to be purchased separately.
