The Crocodile was a flamethrower version of the Churchill.  The fuel trailer's hitch is fully articulated (moves sideways &
up/down & rotates) & the interior of the trailer is well detailed with tanks, pipes, and valves etc.).  
BELOW:  The rear of the tank & the trailer are very well detailed. I didn't glue the trailer's access hatches in place so I can
remove them to view the interior if I wish.
ABOVE: Among the other nice details are all the hull & turret periscopes.
MOUSE-OVER:  A look at the rear of the tank without the trailer.  Note the mufflers, exhaust pipes, & the flame-thrower fuel
transport pipe (so detailed it runs all the way along the underside of the tank to the front where it enters the hull).

CLEAN TANK:
This is my completed
M4A2 before I
weathered it. The
final finish was
matched to the
vignette setting in
which the tank is
displayed (see last
photo).

MOUSEOVER:
This model is a
combination of a
Tamiya M4 kit and
VLS resin hull
parts.
WEATHERED:
I wanted my M4A2
to look fairly new, so I
concentrated the
weathering effects
on the lower hull,
tracks and
suspensions.

I also loaded up the
tank with a fair
amount of exterior
stowage, which is
something I don't
usually do.
LEFT -  Weathered hull and tracks, plus
external stowage (track, spare wheels, gas
cans, oil drum, rope, real fabric tarp).  

ABOVE - The Tamiya kit's plastic 75mm gun
barrel was replaced with a machined aluminum
barrel for added realism.
