Gary Boxall shares with us some great images of just how good the AFV Club Churchill Tanks can turn out with these images of his Churchill Oke in 1/35th scale. Gary has also supplied some very nice background information on the depicted vehicle.

Gary-- Well done, can you describe the method used to gain the rust coating on the mufflers? Thanks

Nice work Gary, I really like your SCC2, did you do a lot of fading? When I tried that mix, it seemed much darker, I'm not sure if I got it right.

Beautiful build Gary! Just the right amount of weathering and -thankfully- a minimum (any?) rust. Looking forward to seeing more!

Great Job!
