Dragon Models 1:72 Armor Collector Series 60503
Harland and Wolff Churchill Mk IV Display Model
British Army North Irish Horse, Tunisia, 1943

1:72 Scale   Length   Width
Harland and Wolff Churchill Mk IV   4"   1.5"

Dragon Armor is offering a fantastic 1/72 scale rendition of the Churchill Mk IV. The accurate miniature model depicts a tank from A Squadron of the North Irish Horse serving in Tunisia in 1943. The North Irish Horse of the British Army landed in Algiers in February 1943 as part of Operation Torch. One of the famous battles was when the unit’s Churchills climbed ‘unscalable’ heights at Djebel Rhar and helped overcome Afrika Korps troops there. The model’s finished in an unusual, but typical of the period, coat of khaki brown paint. This color was known officially as Standard Camouflage Colour 2 (S.C.C. No.2) and the vehicle still carries its ship movement stencils. For modelers wishing to strengthen their British tank regiments, this North African Churchill is a must-have item!

Harland and Wolff Churchill Mk IV

Designed as a heavy infantry tank to replace the Matilda II, the Churchill prototype was completed in June 1940 and the type entered production in June 1941. The design was largely influenced by the British Army's experiences with trench warfare during WWI. As a result, the Churchill was a large, heavy (38 tons), and relatively slow machine, built to traverse heavily cratered landscapes to take on lightly armored infantry. The small turret significantly restricted the size of armament that could be fitted to the Churchill but it's heavy armor made it much more resilient than contemporary allied tanks.
