Well seems like someone has heard my wishes for new 1/16 tanks! I was hoping for a British WWII tank for some time already and here it is, a 1/16 Churchill.

The kit will be released in the MKI, MKII and MKIII version:

MKI


MKII


MKIII


More info on the kit:

No release date or detailled info yet but I already send an email with the request for more information.

Can't wait to see more of this one....

And I hope it's not going to be too expensive....

I haven't but the products on their website look very good. Check the Churchill conversions for example. Nice stuff.

Sorry to rain on your parade, but as of 03/April/08 these are listed as 1/35 NOT 1/16

I have IMA01435 No.2 30ft Bridge & IMA00435 Churchill Mk.IV both superbly engineered,
but not yet started!

Yeah I've seen it as well. Too bad, but hopefully some will come with a 1/16 British tank (radio controlled) in the future.... (I hope mr. Tamiya reads this )

You're not raining on my parade. I knew it was cancelled in 2007.
