Interesting. It appears they have plans to do later versions, i.e. thermal shrouded barrel, battering ram, FN MGs, later smoke dischargers, 60 mm mortar, some top hull ERA... The only potential thing I can see wrong with doing a '73 version - I do not recall seeing the accordion shroud on the main guns from '73.

That looks really nice. Big fan of the Centurion series and never built an Ace kit so I may just have to get one of these. Wonder if they plan on doing other Centurion variants?

Oh cool. Thanks for giving me the list. Ace isn't a brand I see a lot of in model shops I visit so never really sure of their range. Have been interested in trying them though. I might see if I can find one of their Centurions.
