AFV Club have just sent us details of their latest In-Progress subject.
Some tracks need a dfferent approach. Most M4 tracks, for example, can be pretty convincingly done in the 'Rubber Band' style. However the majority simply can't and no matter how skilled the modeler is, it's difficult to finish them as 'solidly' as one would wish. I've always put Churchill Tracks in this category - single link or nothing...

Now, followng on with the welcome nes of their Churchill IV, AFV Club have announced another variant of (WORKABLE) Churchill Tracks with:

AF35183 - B.T.S 3 Heavy Built-up tracks for Churchill

Another small, but welcome addition...

Our thanks to AFV Club for the Update!

Excuse my lack of Churchill knowledge, but would this be for the AVRE model or the earlier marks? Appreciate any help. Best, Walter

Hey Walter They phased these tracks out in late 1942 - and into 1943... I don't have an exact date for you, but the late style tracks (as is currently included in their kits)were introduced in 1942... This being said I imagine it is possibly you can still find photos of them being used right up to the end of the war, but these were predominately used on the early Mark I-IIIs and early AVREs... anybody want to confirm this for me? Jim - I've been waiting a long time for these... any release date announced with them??

Pretty much on the money there Carmen, except they did survive on some AVREs all the way through. They did more or less disappear on gun tanks before 1944 Looking forward to these, does anyone have a contact at AFV Club? I could do with having a chat to them

These look really nice.Some Q's for those that know: Are these on the shelf somewhere now? When? MSRP? Do these click together? As good as Tamiya Char B1 bis? Thanks! Rick

Any update on when they will actually be available? They are on the Hobby Fan/AFV Club website but not on any webstore, and I need them for a conversion project.... I know about the Resicast tracks and also the IMA ones (which appear to be OOP). Thanks for your feedback! Cheers, Christophe
