I have been wanting to build one really nice (and historical) tank like this; one that has that distinct flair....I believe that this Churchill fits that bill to a "T." I hope AFV Club listens to the folks with the knowledge (and it appears that they do/are). It's my belief that these "teasers" are put out to 1) give an idea of what's coming (you know, stoke the lust), and 2) to get the kind of input like above. My kudos to the folks that have the knowledge and the brass to let the manufacturers know (in a professional and informative manner). Kudos also to the companys that listen. Looking forward to seeing the outcome. Mike

Agree with you Mike, all too often someone comes out and rips apart a kit without providing us mere mortals and the company with the information about whats actually up with the kit. Its great to see information provided, and even better to see lively and useful discussions on the model. I just hope the manufacturers listen and read the comments.

Great job Carmen! Here's hoping that AFV Clubs takes your well researched and thougtful comments to heart. Ossie, thanks for chiming in from the manufacturers viewpoint and helping to assure us that they will listen. Keeping my fingers crossed..... Bob

Sweet, that kit has been on my want list since it was announced. Now, if you can just talk them into a Black Prince I'll be all set! Matt

How about at least 1 Churchill for the 1/48th crowd!!!

You are forgetting the major issue with the kit is that the majority of Churchill's involved in the Dieppe raid were in fact Mk 1 with a two pounder in the turret and a 3" mounted in lieu of the hull mounted machine gun. While there were some Mk 111 the majority were Mk 1. This would have made a far more realistic Dieppe Churchiill than reworking the Mk 111 model. Check out LINK Who does a good 1/35 Churchill Mk1/11 conversion for the AFV Mk 111

For the Super- Churchill / Black Prince Have a look at this site LINK I am really hoping that they will release the Black Prince in the not too distant future.
