Interesting that Tamiya doesn’t provide a full length of track. On the one hand it makes sense to not supply tracks that won’t be seen, but on the other, there are lots of photos of Churchills with some or most of the track guards missing (many had the centre section removed in muddy conditions), so it has me wondering if Tamiya provides extra sections of track to cater for that?

Hi Ian
By the speedy way this has gone together it must be a nice fitting kit. Si mentioned the number of wheels - cleaning up that lot must have been mind numbing :tongue-out3:

Apologies have trouble keeping up with everything on here so missed your updates.

Got to say it's looking very good indeed. Well done. Andrew
