COBI 2717 – Churchill Mk. IV (Speed Build Review)

Change language to: de_DE Deutsch

After the Mk. I and II, the small-scale COBI now also gets a Mk. IV from Churchill. Does it have more to offer than just a difference in color?

Manufacturer: COBI
Set-Number: 2717
Theme: Military
Release: 2022
Parts: 315
Figures: 0
Age: 8
Building Time ca.: 1 Hours 30 Minutes



The construction of this model differs significantly from other tank models. Instead of starting with plates to build on, the hull is built in 2 parts that are then snapped together. This means that both the top and bottom are free of studs. Due to its size, this tank does not have real wheels. Instead, 1×1 Plates Round are used. With that, the hull is almost finished and we can put on the tracks. They run very poorly on smooth surfaces. However, a piece of paper is enough to make them roll perfectly.

The small turret is roughly completed and then placed on the hull. Only then is the gun barrel built and plugged in. The indicated hatch and other parts on the top of the turret are only now attached.


This Churchill is not really new. Although it has a different color, it differs only slightly from its predecessor. It would be really nice if COBI would release something new in 1:48 scale. A Maus would be nice, or maybe an airplane.
