I have a bit of a thing for Churchill tanks. Dunno why - possibly strong childhood memories of my brother making the Airfix Churchill. There is something so reassuringly boxy and British looking about them. When I started thinking about giving my little British force for Bolt Action some support options, it was a no brainer that I would pick up one of Warlord's Bolt Action Churchill Mark VIIs.
So what do you get in the box? The tank is a simple resin and metal kit, made up of five resin parts and a small white metal sprue. The detail of the resin is very crisp, with no air bubbles or casting problems. Here is an image of the assembled tank, along with some stowage I've added to the rear engine deck covered in a tarpaulin made from the foil around the top of a wine bottle. Parenthetically, you realise you are a sad bugger when you start choosing wine based on whether it has the right foil around the cork.
Does any of this really make me not like the model? Naaah. What I would love though is a whole lot of spare track sections (rather than the two supplied) and some stowage items to busy the thing up.
