Hi Guys,

I hope you enjoy the article and find it useful. It's quite long but there was a lot in this build.

It exists due to the efforts a certain Darren Baker aka CMOT who badgered me constantly to do it - so you can blame or thank him if you like

Cheers

Al

Alan despite the lack of responses I am glad you did this feature as it provides a lot of information that will help anyone who builds one of these.

I just skimmed through this build feature and am already finding it helpful. Maybe this will be my next non-campaign project after I finish my MK IV? It's a good thing Darren likes British armour, or we may never get around to finishing some of these builds

Looked like an interesting build Alan. Thanks for the article.
I may have to add another Churchill to my list by the looks of it - I'm beginning to love doing resin interiors.
