I'm getting details together to build a 1/72 Centaur AA tank Mk.II using a Revell Cromwell base kit and a MR Models conversion.
I have details and photos of the turret and hull but not of the engine deck (not included in the conversion) which I know to be different on the Centaur.
Does anyone have any photos/drawings of the Centaur deck that you can share?

Hi Luciano,

I did the Cromwell/Centaur Dozer, the Cromwell being the donor kit.

Here's some pics that might help.







The dozer had a raised rib around rhe top of the rear hull.

Just do what most target builders do, and shove a load of stowage on the back .

Thanks guys, I've gone and brought the Osprey book on the Cromwell still no pictures but from what I can tell the Centuar and Cromwell IV had the same rear deck unless you have a early Centuar then it didn't have the raised air intake or a late Cromwell where the engine panels are different.

So no problems with the conversion then just time
