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.
