Work in Progress - AFV Club 1/35 Sho’t Kal Gimel (Israeli Centurion)

Built a long while ago but yet to be painted.

Metal tracks are aftermarket parts, everything else including the aluminium barrel, rubber tires, photo-etched parts, etc. are included in the kit. Absolutely amazing kit for the price. I don’t like the provided rubber tracks though.

Fun fact, the headlights are on their own 21 parts in total.


Comparison between the original Sho’t tank (Israeli Centurion) and the modernized Sho’t Kal Alef.

The original Rolls-Royce Meteor engine was replaced by a Continental AVDS-1790-2A diesel engine (that of the M60 Patton), and the transmission replaced by an Allison CD850-6 transmission. Recognizable by the M60-style engine deck.
