Well done, Richard. A short check of my files turned up a copy of your original article on the NA75, sans photos.

Really useful link, Richard.

The images of your conversion work is helpful in showing how you did and what others can do.

Still didn't work out when these conversions appeared on a real battlefield?

Nice model of a seldom seen Churchill variant I remember way back in the 60s (66 or 67 I think) reading the Churchill Story in Airfix Magazine and associated conversion articles and making some of them.

They entire production run was built in Bone, Tunisia.

The very first one not even started until all the fighting had finished there.

As far as i`m aware they only ever served in Italy.
