Many thanks, appreciated. There were a couple of firsts for me, making the basket, which was quite fun and I'm pleased with the paint colour too, it was the colour I wanted for the Churchill but it's slightly more khaki looking. The other real plus was finding an easy fix for the wheel gap issue as it presented the possibility of a slightly odd looking vehicle and was my biggest concern.
It's a bit bright at the moment and much 'cleaner' looking than my normal tanks. It was also good to do a UK training tank as that's what a lot fo these were used for and the early war period is an interesting one.
I want to do some more work on the exhaust, not normally much of a feature on Allied Tanks and I might replace the fire extinguisher with a resin one I came across for better detail. I've got some Hornet crew that should fit well and I'l like to include the Wee Friends Policeman and naughty child so a few ideas of presentation starting to form.
MiniArt have done a cracking job, and the partial interior, full gun breech are a big plus. That' s the sort of additional detail I'd like to see some of the other manufacturers adding as standard, makes for a much more interesting build and solves a lot of the open hatch problems, it was also what sparked the have a go at a basic interior path I set off on.
Thanks again and glad you enjoy thed build.
