This comprehensive 1/35th scale conversion set by Rob Tearle converts the TAMIYA Churchill kit* into the Assault Vehicle Royal Engineers (AVRE) Mk-VII. AVRE’s and Churchill ‘TOAD’ Flails (C066) were designed to clear all obstacles ahead during an armoured assault against fixed defences.

The AVRE Mk-VII was the first AFV to be fitted with the powerful 165mm demolition gun, which superseded the Petard used in WW-2 AVRE’s. The most common fitting carried was the dozer fixture fitted to this version**. The conversion includes all standard fittings, replacement turret with ARV cupola, loudspeakers, cable drums and smoke dischargers, dozer fittings & stowage and other hull details and equipment.

In addition a number of fine brass etched details are provided to improve the basic kit and for the conversion, and a set of full colour decals with a selection of markings are also included.

**We may consider making the Facine cradle/facine version if there is a demand, let us know!

This product is a Conversion set and a donor plastic kit is needed to make the vehicle shown in the images. * TAMIYA Mk-VII kit or Crocodile.

Les, this conversion is based on a Churchill MK-7 which only Tamiya make. We do make conversions for the AFV club kits based on the earlier marks which only they do. The conversion has to be used on the correct donor kit from AFV Club or Tamiya otherwise all the hull details will be wrong.
