This is a photoetch set for Tamiya Centurion Mk III 1.35 Model kit.

The set contains the following sets;

  • 2 x photoetch sheet
  • 1 film
  • 1 instruction sheet

This photoetch set replaces a lot of the simple molded on details and improve the kit immensely.

The parts are very easy to attach and form with only a few issues and points to be aware of being encountered during the complete build. The first one was you need to use Kit part A13 to form the photo etch replacement Item 28. I would also suggest that when attaching the item 109 handles that you pre-drill holes for them sit in. I added a pick axe head as one is not included to replace the one you remove during the build. Remember to fill the holes not required, most are indicated in the instructions but a few are missed. I also added a Sledge hammer to replace the one you remove during the build.

Be careful when forming the items 38 and 33 around the kit part A12.

When you come to the replacement turret side bins latches the part the latch locks on to is shown as item 99 in a couple of locations when it should be item 106.

Summary

This is a fantastic set for adding a lot of great additional details to very old kit from Tamiya. I would recommend this set to everyone who has this kit.

Thanks go to Eduard for providing this set to review and IPMS USA for allowing me to review it for them.
