SMM3546E - Challenger I Detail Set Small
New Challenger 1 Products - SMM3546E
Intended for use with the Tamiya Challenger 1 Mk.3 (35154).
This set should be used in conjunction with the earlier SMM3546D Large Set.
The first Tamiya Challenger 1 kit (35134) is difficult to find, even though most parts also appear in the more recent Challenger 1 Mk.3 (35154) kit – depicting Gulf War 1.
The parts in this set allows you to:
a) add further detail to the SMM3546D Challenger 1 Detail Large Set.
b) build an earlier Challenger 1 – before Gulf War 1.
c) build a more updated Challenger 1 to the end of service, including in IFOR, SFOR and KFOR service.
SMM3546F - Challenger I Sideskirts
New Challenger 1 products - SMM3546F
PE skirt plates with 3D-printed handles, plus resin nut/bolt heads are included.
Designed for the Tamiya Challenger 1 (either version)
SMM3546G - Challenger I Turret Baskets
New Challenger 1 products -SMM3546G
These are 3D printed and fit exactly to the Tamiya kit.
Because of Gulf War 1, extra crew stowage became
a problem and several makeshift solutions were built
in the field for the campaign.
Standardised baskets became available soon after.
One long basket was fitted to the left side, and a smaller one on the right immediately behind the TOGs.
SMM3546H - Challenger I Glacis Armour
New Challenger 1 products - SMM3546H
A simple add-on part for those wanting to build an IFOR or SFOR Challenger 1 without going to the expense of the full SMM3546C Armour Package.
This should be used in conjunction with the SMM3546D Detail Set Large and/or the SMM3546E Detail Set Small.
For the IFOR mission to Bosnia (1995), after intial experience without them, front hulls were fitted with add-on glacis armour plates previously used in Gulf War 1 (part 2 from SMM3546C).
SFOR (1996) followed with the same equipment.
