Lightweight Landie, awesome but not sure about the Churchill as a choice am I right in thinking they are too large to go on railway wagons?

Best wishes
Simon

The Churchill was designed to fit onto British loading gauge, which is why it's so narrow looking.  Originally the designers wanted it to be wider with a much bigger turret and armament.

And the Humber armoured car is due RSN!

I can't see a Humber armoured car mentioned among these releases.   Am I missing something?

I have an interest in this as the Humber "Pig" is among the 4 military vehicle kits the NGS has commissioned from PG models.

Cheers

Line drawings now online:-

The Borismaster is the pink rather than yellow Propercorn livery.

Photos were shown of real unpainted pieces from the moulds; these are on the members-only Facebook groups for Oxford Diecast Collectors.

If I remember correctly, the Churchill was the last MBT able to be carried on Warflats, I think it was replaced by the Centurion and then the Chieftain, both of which were to wide for British loading gauge. In between the Churchill and the Centurion came the Comet and Cromwell, both of which would've been carried on Warflats, so in fact the Cromwell & Comets would've been the last MBT's to have been carried on Rail in the UK.

The Centurion started coming into service right at the end of WW2, but I don't think saw active service on WW2.

Sorry I digressed a bit there  :D :D :D

Cheers

Neal.
