Armoured Engineering Vehicles are possible some of the most interesting tracked vehicles you can build. The Centaur Dozer came into the war late; based on the hull of the redundant Centaur Anti Aircraft tank. The War Office requirement was for 250 machines and these were built by MG Cars of Abingdon. Production was slow and the Dozer finally went Operational in April 1945. It also saw service later in the Korean War and during the Suez crisis in 1956. This kit is based on the Accurate Armour Conversion Combination set CO53K, which includes the conversion set and the Tamiya Cromwell Gun Tank. It represents a vehicle from C Squadron, 87th Assault Dozer Squadron, 1st Assault Brigade Royal Engineers, 79th Armoured Division. The kit has a scratch built interior for some illusion and shape and the No 19 Radio is from Formations. Stores were from the spares box and some home grown. Figures are from Resicast and Accurate Armour.
