1/35 scale Tamiya Churchill with carpet layer gear

Russ Sharp
Victoria, British Columbia, Canada

One of British Maj. Gen. Percy Hobart’s AVRE (Armored Vehicle, Royal Engineers) designs (also known as “Hobart’s Funnies”) was a modification of the Churchill tank to unroll a mat for other tanks to cross wet, soft ground. Russ scratchbuilt deep wading gear and the “carpet layer” for Tamiya’s 1/35 scale kit. The groundwork is decorative sand.
