    I got a couple Eddy. Here they are, and one photo of various hulks.It was quite hard to photograph the Churchill that is being restored as it was jammed in with a few others.

    thanks jim
    i just love churchills especially the mk 4 75mm shown on the first pic (i'm lucky enough to own one) although it's not restored or complete. i was wondering what the tanks on the last pic are, the one on the left is an m47 patton which was on milweb a while back for 16.5k it's the other 2 i was not sure of ,are they conqueror arv's ?

    thanks

    I don't own a churchill but i would like to what would a good one be worth?
    i do have a bit of one though if anyone could tell me where on the tank this would go that would be good it's a makers plate i should really do the home work on it and find out the history there wernt that many made so could be interesting

    i'm not sure about the value of a churchill either but i do know shermans are going for 200k and in my opinion a churchill is more tank for your money but if i had to guess i would say anywhere between 80k to 100k but like i said it's just a guess. as for the makers plate i couldn't tell you yet where it goes but when i find out i'll let you know. as for production i think they built about 5500 churchills so there are a few about still, infact if you'd like to get up close to one there are 3 churchill wrecks on feldom tank range in catterick, the range is disused and open so you could get on no problem just stick to the paths.

    all the best
