Meanwhile, QuanGuan stands out from its big role model and also brings its own creations onto the market. That’s laudable, but there’s still a lot of room for improvement when it comes to stone quality.

QuanGuan has a very high clamping force and so the first plates already ensure high stability. However, this clamping force also creates problems, as we will see elsewhere. The Churchill also gets a little interior. The engine consists only of molded parts that belong more in model making. But you won’t see it later anyway, because you can’t remove the tile covers without destroying everything. The hull is further built by reversing the direction of construction and the rear is equipped with small details and tools.
The side skirts are built quite complex and are provided with details and prints. After 44 rollers have been attached, it is the turn of the tracks. Fortunately, there are enough spare parts, as a number of tracks are defective. But in the end they run surprisingly well, even if they keep slipping out of the guide of the rollers and then get stuck briefly. The hull is now complete and it is the turrets turn.
Here, too, a lot of building direction reversal is used. Otherwise the turret is quite simple and the MG consists only of molded parts.
Visually the Churchill looks pretty good and overall the bricks are OK. However, the tiles are very tight and sit rather imprecisely. This creates tension and only a little force here and there helps to place parts. So in the end you get what you pay for. At least the bricks1031 are not too loose and the end result is extremely stable.
