Here’s a quick look at how it all turned out before we get into the project…
Thankfully Tamiya continue with their 1:48 Armour line and even more thankfully they sometimes release interesting non-German subjects. For me the Churchill Crocodile certainly fits the interesting bill.
As is typical for these 48 scale kits, assembly is really straightforward. Often you can knock the construction over in a few hours. This time I assembled the tracks taking care not to glue them to the running gear. That way most of them can be removed for painting.
I also decided not to fit the front guards as I thought the tracks deserved some more attention.
