The Challenger 2 Papermodel

This is my second model tank i build of julescrafter.com military model, The Challenger 2. I made it just for 2 weeks. So fun and easy to build.

I got these patterns from Mr. Ardia, he got it from Angakasa Magazine. Printed on art paper 170 gsm (i think so), thick and slippery to use white base glue and only publish once by Angkasa Magazine with a permission of Julius Perdana.

You can have this model, but no for free. You must get for USD$ 2.50 to get it. Once again you can check other cool military papermodel on julescrafter.com


FV4034 Challenger 2 is a British main battle tank (MBT) currently in service with the armies of the United Kingdom and Oman. It was designed and built by the British company Vickers Defence Systems (now known as BAE Systems Land and Armaments). The manufacturer advertises it as the world's most reliable main battle tank. As of January 2008, two Challenger 2s have been damaged in combat, and one destroyed by another Challenger 2 in a friendly fire incident.

Challenger 2 is an extensive redesign from Challenger 1, the MBT from which it was developed. It uses the basic hull and automotive parts of its predecessor but all else is new. Fewer than 5% of components are interchangeable. Challenger 2 has now replaced Challenger 1 in service with the British Army and is also used by the Royal Army of Oman. It has seen operational service in Bosnia, Kosovo and Iraq (2003–present). During the 2003 invasion of Iraq the Challenger 2 tanks operating in the Gulf suffered no total losses to enemy fire. In one engagement a Challenger survived 14 hits from rocket propelled grenades and from one MILAN anti tank missile.
