Perfect Mr W.

I am sure if you worked out a unit price to make them you would get takers. Presume they will also fit the Chieftain smoke grenade launch tubes?

An amazing (re)build Phil, not to mention a superb and comprehensive build log too.
It takes time to post your photos and comments, time which could likely be better spent elsewhere - so thankyou.

Hope you’ve got something else lined up……..
Cheers
Kevin

Steve, I have been very pleased since the Cent arrived in Phil W's workshop back in November 2021. We both had the same vision with the Cent being a blank canvas. The work has been a team effort with input from Stephen White, Dave Dibb, Kevin Hunter, Didier Molard and Vince in Malta. All hugely appreciated. Oh and by the way Steve, I am singular, its Dawe not Dawes :D

There are so many talented folks on this forum, who generously share their skill, tips and modeling knowledge that I make this website my go to starter site twice, some times three times a day to be entertained and amazed at the same time.

But I must single out Phil who goes way beyond most builders, in my humble opinion, in documenting his craft and engineering processes with such clarity and detail that he makes the really hard stuff look easy, which I'm sure it 'aint.

Thank you again for a wonderful build, looking forward to what ever else comes down the pike.
