awesome paint jobs as usual.
love the Berlin Camo
regards
Sean

I totally agree Sean - it has got to be one of the best Cold War camos - although some of the Modern Chinese camo schemes are also fantastic and give it a run for the money.

I must admit I am very tempted by some 10mm CWC armour for an imaginary "what if?" Berlin scenario

The Berlin cameo seems to have been inspired by the regularity of straight line human construction in an urban environment and one that used colours adjusted to such an environment.  The use of pixellated camouflage for rural settings as the Chinese appear to do puzzles me.  Can anyone explain why it might be better than traditional approaches to camouflage?

Good stuff - but why waste time on the Conway, 1 prototype built !

The Conway is indeed an odd choice.  I wonder what the rationale was for that decision?  It might be useful in some post-apocalyptic scenario, where the zombies try to overrun The Tank Museum while David Fletcher is recording an episode of Tank Chats.  Other than that............

The original War Office plan was to issue Conways 1 per Centurion 20pdr Troop, but like the old Firefly and Sherman mix, with each division having a whole regiment just of Conquerors (!). In the end they just put 6-9 Conquerors in each regiment and left the regimental commanders to work it out.
But trying out the what-if with the Conways in each Troop might be an interesting game, once. I suspect it would have worked out badly in practice.

But a whole regiment of Conquerors, now that would be something!

I think the Conway was a freebie from the sculptor, he was doing the Cent 1 at the time and popped a Conway turret in the box for us.

The BTR-152 with armoured top is just crying out for the addition on a chap firing an RPG or a man-pad SAM  Cheesy

And a mighty fine thing it is too!

I have a 1950s-ish imagination campaign where Conways, Conquerors and Centurions take on T54s and M48s.

Bit of sugert with a craft knife and use of super glue Mark, but isn't the 152 a tad early for those. If you really want them now PSC 10mm stiuff will supply (this will get moderated for that un).

All very valid points Gentlemen, but my warring proxies only bought T54s and M48s.

There is also a French client state with AMX13s and Panhards. Waiting for the AMX30 I think.

I do like an AMX30 have any actually fought in anger anywhere?
I know the Greeks use(d) them - did they actually fight against the Turks with them?
