Thanks for the info. One point if you are looking at accuracy....

Given your 1960s timeline the Centurion would be a Mk.5 and not a Mk.3....the purchased Mk.3s were quickly converted to the Mk.5s in the early 1950s.

The 1/72 scale kit would be appropriate for a Centurion Mk.5 from the LdSH(RC), 'C' Squadron, 4 Troop stationed at Canadian Forces Base Calgary up to 1965. In 1965 the Strathconas rotated to Germany until 1969 and used the Mk.11LRs.

Thanks for the expert information I will let Hobby Master know.

These actually are not kits - but rather already assembled metal Diecast with tampo ink printed markings.

Here was their previous release:
