John, the Centaur looks great. Do I see a T40 influence? ;-)
On your TTS. I'd recommend running a screw up through the guide teeth
to reinforce them. I broke a few on the Cromwell. Since putting the
screws in - no longer an issue.
Looks like we may be able to put together a British "C" division -
Comet, Centaur, and Cromwell.
Great work and looking forward to seeing you in the fall.
