Has anybody come across a manufacturer that makes a Challenger A30 tank in 1/48 scale ?

Just out of curiosity: for what system do you need the model?

Because 28mm is 1/56 scale

I have never seen one and scale modeller catalogue doesn't say any, plenty of 1/72 and a few 1/35 but no 1/48th. Should be fairly easy to convert though?

Might be worth contacting them and asking if they can do you a 1/48 print, they generally sell at 1/56, 1/72 and 1/100.

3d printed A30 in 1/56 scale. Not the best quality model but better than nothing.

Looks pretty fair, the scaling with the infantry seems spot on. Did you get all of the tank printed? I wonder if it might be worth it just to get the turret printed and use a Cromwell kit for the hull.

Yes it was printed. If you used a Cromwell base you would need to change the wheels as the Challenger an extra ?

Yeah if you want to be historically accurate just a turret swap is no go as you say, the Challenger having an extra road wheel as well as actually being longer makes it a different beast entirely (think it also used a different system to tension its tracks as well?). Was just thinking of for gaming as the turret swap changes the silhouette enough that it is instantly recognisable and pretty hard to confuse with anything else.
