Challenger 2 TES

  • move
Jason Yu shares with us some images of his Challenger 2 TES. The model is a 1/35th scale offering. Jason used photo etched slats from Eduard and Voyager, with the Enforcer RWS coming from CASTOFF. Jason acknowledges that there are still some problems with the details, like the hull side slats and tracks are not the correct style; I feel he did a fantastic job regardless. I also like the effort Jason has put into the photographs for this feature.

Very nice built. I guess it is very difficult to apply the camouflage decals. I have a PE camouflage from Eduard and it is easier to apply. However I think the work is also difficult to make the barracuda MCS with it, because of several panels we have to cut parts of net and glue them on plastic sheets for example. I have not tried it is just what I imagine.

Thank you for the explanation, Jason, I must try this one day. Very well done, it looks very authentic :-)

Great job, Jason, really wonderful! What kit did you use for the basic Challenger tank?

Thank you! I have been looking for a good bronze green for a Centurion. I would never have thought about using a primer as a top coat, but this looks like a perfect match.

Hi Curt The basic kit is Trumpeter's Challenger 2 enhanced armour.The details of this kit is sad, but its chassis is slightly better than Tamiya's old Challenger 1's and it provides the later style perforated road wheels(only the outer side, the inner side wheels are still the wrong sized old style ones.). So I used this kit, and replaced some poor details with parts from Tamiya's Challenger 2.
