BigGrin Hi All

This will be the kit I will be building for the "D-Day 75 Competition Entry".

The Churchill is the AFV Club Churchill Mk.IV AVRE with Fascine Carrier Frame. I have also managed to find the rare Hobby fan resin fascine bundle kitDrool Drool Drool Drool Drool Cool . Both are currently in the post and I will post a review of the kits when they arrive.

They'll keep you busy for a while Andy, but well worth the effort just for the way they will look afterwards and will also add a nice 'weighty' feel to the model too. Cool ThumpUp

BigGrin Made a start today by constructing the two wheel assemblys. The assembly includes springs so the suspension is fully working as per the real tank a nice little touch. The detail so far is crisp and still more to add to the two track sponsons.

More soon.
