My next model is the Canadian Leopard, and this will be next. I look forward to it, as it will form a (very) slowly growing tribute to Canadian armed forces. I found this review very good, very informative, and positive. Thanks!

"The one thing that I am unable to work out is what the thick paper part is supposed to represent on the rear of the tank"


Someone will probably correct me ,but from pictures I believe it to be part of the water proofing. In pictures it does seem similar in colour. Tamiya's booklet on the Churchill shows some Marks had air deflectors near where Part J is shown mounted.
Some work will be needed to make some of the Churchills at Dieppe as the the water proofing remnants are prominent on some. Inside the Armour had after market parts to help with this. Alas I believe he is no longer trading. Good reference for this project would be Dieppe Through the Lens.
