Churchill Mark III

  • move
This offering features the 1/72nd scale Dragon Model kit representing a Churchill Mk.III of the type that participated in the landing of Dieppe in 1942. The design is very special with an extremely long frame and its wraparound tracks. It is armed with a 6-pdr cannon inserted into the fully welded turret. In addition, the exhaust pipes were extended and high to prevent water getting in after getting off the boats to get to the beach of Dieppe. The kit is very well detailed and assembles quickly. I noticed a lot of accuracy in details that make it a nice model to build and set. The diorama depicts a Canadian soldier taken prisoner and by a German soldier.

I think both of the opposing soldiers may be placed in front of the diorama, they will be better exposed and more 'stories' can be told. Very lookin' good Churchill and nice diorama base. More wip pictures will be more fun. Cheers, Garry

I really like the finish on the Churchill though the height of the ruins behind it makes me nervous; both in the way it looks (Why hasn't it fallen over yet?" to simply breaking it off as you move or dust the dio. I agree that the soldiers should be posed more visibly up front. Well done otherwise!

Yes, very nice finish on the Churchill. Perhaps the position of the figures is so that there is an uninterrupted view of the tank from one side? On the building, I suppose it is only part of the ruin that's included in the diorama, we can imagine some more of it outside the space. Were any of Dieppe's buildings destroyed in the raid though? I believe very few of the tanks made it anywhere near the town.
