Hello,

here's my Dragon's Churchill Mk.IV...built from the box.

It didn't go together as well as other kits from this manufacturer; there's some tension along the fenders that causes them to slightly bend inwards. a_DSC8765_zpsl7n6nqhy.jpga_DSC8766_zpsj0next3t.jpg

I did not use Dragon's decal option (only one included) as a quick online search revealed that "Castlerobin IV" had actually a different type of gun.

So out came the spares box, and a turret number from another Churchill (Matchbox' AVRE if I remeber correctly).

Only the "4" (identifying North Irish Horse Regiment) from Dragon's decal sheet was used.

The model was painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics, according to Dragon's instructions.

Weathering with Artists Olis and Pastels.

Thanks for looking!

Cheers from Vienna.
