Sometimes, we have a tendency to look at the latest ''mega-releases'' and ignore what can be done using some of the older kits on the market. This New ''On-Display'' by Sean Emmott (PILGRIM) is a perfect example of just what can be achieved with a lot of work and a kit that many would think of as ''past it''s sell-by-date'' - a good object lesson for all of us! Sean''s Churchill VII in 1/35th scale, can be seen:

Very, very nice. Want to know something? I haven't the slightest idea if Sean did a single thing to make the kit more accurate or not, and I couldn't care less. All I know is that this looks like a Churchill tank, and it looks like one that has been in action for a while, and for me that is what counts. Great job.

Great job. Especially on the track links and the very realistic mud.
