Another good addition to their Churchill range.

While 34TB certainly had Churchill Mk III gun tanks on strength in France during June 1944, I'm not sure that 141RAC (part of 79AD) did, as it was a Crocodile unit. I'd be interested to hear evidence to the contrary though.

That is such a great design! The list of "must builds" grows longer...

I did searches on the mentioned units and Funnies were mentioned a lot.

A pity that the individual link tracks aren't included in the box. I'd like to build one of these at some point but I'll have to buy one of the indy track sets.

I, uh... *ahem* Never mind then.

They weren't in some of the previous Churchill kits, right? I guess I just assumed without looking closely enough.

I am sorry I cannot answer that as regards all of their Churchill models; however a search through our review section shows that all of the kits that have been reviewed have the individual track links and the option of rubber band type as well in some cases.

Not all the AFV Club Churchill kits have the indy links in them. The only ones so far are the Dieppe , MkIII with 75mm gun and MKIv Avre. All the others I have here do not come with the indy links, a fact that I find annoying. If AFV Club can put the tracks in some kits why not do them all!!!! Also with the MKIV Avre they've put in the heavy tracks, I've only managed to find 1 pic of a MKIV Avre with heavy tracks all the rest have the lighter ones.
