Gents

Apparently some of the early Centurions had 40 gal Fuel drums on the back - does anyone have a pic of this arrangement?

Cheers

Bob

Bob , not sure if this any help
but the centurion in the colour plate has what looks like a square box fitted at the back (think its the Australian 100 fuel tank but i suspect it would be a larger copy of the original 40 ?)

Thanks Thomas

Thats the replacement tank for the 40 gal Drum. Nice pic - I will model that sort if I can't get pics of the 40 Gal arrangement. However as I want the cent for 46/47 scenarios I prefer the earlier drum if i can find a pic

Cheers

Bob
