I was hoping to see the Churchill. There have been so many Shermans.

It was a toss up between the sherman and the Churchill the thing that turned it for me was I can make a M10 Achilles from the base now that I have found some good refs of the M10. I will see how I get on with this one the churchill would be easyer.........dave
