Mr. Churchill’s tank…AFV Club 1/35 Infantry escort….
March 15, 2013 in Armor
After TONS of fiddling I’m calling this done (except of course for the commander figure I’m still fooling with). AFV Club’s Churchill namesake is a great kit. When I saw the boxart of this new release, festooned with spare track link “armor”, I hadda do it. All of this was arranged after staring at many pics of Churchills in action, note some Sherman links mixed in. I also bought the set of “workable” plastic links AFV Club sells. Stowage is some homemade and some storebought. White Ensign’s WCC15 Brit Olive Drab is the base coat, covered with crud from Tamiya weathering sticks (which are rapidly getting hard to find). I really like these water-based tools as they dry real fast and take flatcoats without changing color. I think this is one cool looking beastie, hope they come out with a Mark I in the future. Anyway this is depicting a Churchill entering a German village in early 1945, the end is near.
