1/56 (28mm) Churchill Mk I/II
Early Churchill with options for the Mark I or Mark II.
These tanks were armed with a 2pdr gun in the turret, and either a 3" howitzer (MkI) or Machine Gun (MkII) in the hull. The hull gun plate is a separate piece, with the option turn the Mk I into a Mk II. These also have a 3mm depression in the back so they can be magnetised (magnets not provided).
The Mark I, with its 3" howitzer, remained in service up to the Gothic line (1944-45), mainly due to the lack of close support tanks in the Desert and Italian theatres . The Mark II was quickly replaced when 6pdr turrets became available.
Turret hatches can be modelled open or closed
Suitable for British forces.
