British Main Battle Tank Challenger 2 (Desertised)
Item No: 35274

Length: 334mm. Image shows painted and assembled kit.

Ready for the Desert
Successor to the Challenger 1 of Gulf War fame, the Challenger 2 featured a redesigned turret with Chobham armor, the L/55 120mm rifled L30 gun, and electronics upgrades such as a firing control system. Deployment with units began in 1998, and in the Iraq War from Spring 2003, it was fielded by the 7th Armoured Brigade "Desert Rats."

About the Model
This is a 1/35 scale plastic model assembly kit. Length: 334mm. The powerful, honed form of the Challenger 2 with L/55 120mm gun is captured artfully. Features realistic depictions of hull front and rear additional armor. Other points of note include renderings of the canvas side skirts, angular exhausts and Combat Identification Panels (CIP). Clear parts are employed in the depiction of sight camera and lights. Comes with commander and loader torso figures, plus three marking options.


This image gives a look from the rear of this accurate 1/35 rendering of the honed Challenger 2 form.

Clear parts are used in the commander's cupola panoramic sight and the gun shield infra-red sight.

Belt-type depictions of the tracks are accurate and fuss-free. Side skirt detailing is a point of major interest.

Headlights and taillights use clear parts, while the rear also features auxiliary fuel tanks and cable reel.

Hull rear engine grilles and Combat Identification Panels (CIP) have a finely molded finish.

A separately sold photo-etched parts set (Item 35277) is also available for extra detail on your kit!
