Thanks guys
How would a Churchill crew repair a broken track in the field?
They would not have had access to an angle grinder or welding equip.

I hope welding isn't required for the new kit.

Cheers Charles

Welding the track pin retaining flange in place - starts at 1m 6 seconds




We will not expect people to weld the pins in place :D - instead we will use a lightly knurled track pin and a grub screw.

Looks great!

Any chance of optional barrels? Such as long 6 pounder or 75mm for Churchill MIII*?

Cheers,

Alex

Or a no turret option so an engineering bridge laying version can be built.
