That list of tank names is extraordinary! Now all I have to do is work out how to paint them small enough to fit on the side of the exhaust port: about 3mm letters I think! Oh, and another question whilst we're talking Churchills: what is the tube to be stuck on the left side of the turret? Is it a ...

Re: Churchills
