Harland and Wolff Churchill Diecast Model
British Army, Normandy, France, D-Day, June 6th 1944

Harland and Wolff Churchill   4"   1.5"

The Churchill Tank, named after the famous British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, was a widely developed series of heavy infantry tanks. The basic blueprint followed a pre-WWII tank design based upon trench warfare characteristics of WWI. The Churchill was continuously upgraded to improve its sometimes poor performance. It was a low profile tank that had excellent climbing capabilities, but it lacked firepower and armament. By the end of the war, some late model Churchill's were fitted with 75mm main guns and some had armor that rivaled that of the German King Tiger.

Harland and Wolff Churchill

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.

Forces of Valor's 1:72 scale Chuchill Tank almost entirely from diecast metal with only the smallest amount of plastic used in those areas requiring the greatest detail. Among this model's many moving parts are a 360 degree rotating diecast metal turret, elevating metal cannon and rolling rubber tracks and wheels. The top portion of the hull and skirts are constructed in diecast metal, with hand applied dry-brushed weathering effects on areas such as hatches, tow cables, spare track and rivets. Other fine details can be seen on the fuel nozzle (used for flame thrower operations), the hand-painted tank commander and on the suspension.
