they are 12mm or 1/144 scale, but a push of the button and they could be 1/150??

quality looks good.

Great site.  Disappointed with the look of the Chieftain, what do you think?  Great to see a Centurion AVRE.  Just right for my time period.

They are done on an FDM 3D printer. There may be banding and some stringing unless they are done on a quality machine, or very well set up.

I can only go by what I can see of the photographs and the description of the process.

However, the people involved in this venture are to be applauded for making models available whicj may not have otherwise been done.

Sorry, I meant the shape of the turret itself.  This may be the Mk9/10 variant, and I'm not too clued up on the StillBrew armour.

Thanks for this they look very interesting One of the trains i hope to build you this year was a military one using NGS kits when they are available!  these models look like providing a reasonably priced and varied selection

I assume that the larger tanks would be transported singly on a warwell ?  Might buy i few to see what they are like

The Centurion and Cheiftain would be too wide to carry by rail.

If you are Modelling Germany then the Centurian can be carried by rail but not in the UK,
I believe the LAst UK main Battle tank that could be carried by rail in the UK was the  Comet in use till 1958.

I picked up several Chieftains an FV432s about a year ago. The models are very poor quality and need a lot of work to get them good enough for wagon loads.

I have just acquired a few models from their range and I suggest they have sorted out a few gremlins because the models I have seem far superior to those in your piccie.

I will add a few piccies in a bit when I phone is behaving again. The scorpion is especially neat, perfect for my future military goods when the newer warflat wahgon kit is released.

Best wishes
Simon

I had a look at these yesterday and they are lovely models. Being made of pewter and hollow inside, they're not too heavy either so would work well as trainloads.
