I thought these modifications for a Desert Challenger would make for a more interesting take on the base Tamiya kit. As most of these changes are related to the hull, this chapter will concentrate on that area. Construction I began the conversion by cutting out the kit rear deck using a strand of dental floss. 040in. sheet. The rear hull plate was replaced by a blank sheet and trimmed to fit. Both sides of the hull and sponsons were replaced with plastic card, and the left side exhaust port was blanked off from below.
The rear turret bin was rebuilt with the correct square shape and detailed with brass mesh, copper wire and Tamiya tape. Deck screens are a mix of Tamiya photo-etch and Scenics brass mesh. Side bins had covers made from rolled Apoxie Sculpt draped over some scrap boxes and gas cans. 030in. plastic squares.

Following that event, Royal Ordnance was tasked to build 243 Challenger 1s (FV 4030/3) for the British Army in spring of 1983, with the Royal Tank Regiment (RTR) receiving the first tanks later the following year. The Challenger has only gone through a few upgrades over its service life, with a Mk 3 Challenger being the final version that has been fitted with a Thermal Observation and Gunnery Sight (TOGS) (Mk 2) and a quick release for the rear-mounted fuel drums. In 1990, the Pearson Combat Dozer Blade (UDK1) was accepted for service and all Challengers were capable of mounting it.
