Just a note: When using that front dust screen the front fenders need to be attached (unlike my model, above, which is missing its fenders!)

Looks like a nice stowage set.

Tedd, you mention about the sand skirt being only used in North Africa, this is true, and unfortunately means your churchill carries the wrong markings/colour in order to have it fitted. It should be in the Kingforce markings and camouflage of black and sand. Never mind, I don't want to take anything away from your build which looks great. Just thought others may find the information useful.

Thanks,

James

No, Churchills were also used in Tunisia -well, that IS North Africa, but the photos you're thinking of were of the few "King Force" Churchills painted in that camo scheme. See "Mr. Churchill's Tank", by David Fletcher -it's excellent! Normally the majority of Churchills were the standard green. Of course, being B&W photos, we don't know if those King Force tanks were black/sand or green/sand. If you have more references, please share.
