Recently announced by Resicast is the conversion for the AFV Club Churchill to make an ARK Mk II (Italian Pattern)



I've been waiting for one of these for a while, I've got a dio planned for one along with a Kiwi Sherman Mk III in Italy.

The price is a little prohibitive though, being €99 plus shipping from the Resicast site. I'll see if I can source one elsewhere cheaper. Hobbyeasy seem to have good prices on Resicast stuff B)

Thanks Micky, I've already got a Mk III and Mk IV Churchill in the stash, so will just need the conversion. I won't be having the bridge down in my dio though. Here is the pic I want to replicate. It's a Kiwi Sherman III in position to fire on a German SPG near the Senio River in Italy in 1945
