Modelers...
As I finished the two girls AVRE ( https://armorama.kitmaker.net/forums/192517&page=1) I decided to stay in the Churchill family and build the two versions of the Mk IV Churchill tank with 6 pdr gun.
The early version, armed with Mk III 6pdr short barreled gun...


...and the late version, armed with Mk V 6pdr long barreled gun:


Starting the job:
