British Churchill Mk. VII Infantry Tank - 6th Guards Tank Brigade, Normandy, 1944 British Churchill Mk. VII Infantry Tank - 6th Guards Tank Brigade, Normandy, 1944 (1:72 Scale)

The "Churchill" began life as a 1939 requirement that envisaged a return to trench-warfare, and was therefore slow and heavily armored like the Russian KV-1 series. That said, the final Churchill prototype was much lighter than had first been thought acceptable, although it still resembled a World War I tank in appearance.
