This is my first tank that sticks to one colour scheme and i would really appreciate any comments. The Churchill Crocodile was a British flame-throwing tank of late Second World War. A variant of the Tank, Infantry, Mk VI (A22) Churchill Mark VII, although the Churchill Mark IV was initially chosen to be the base vehicle. It was introduced as one of the specialised armoured vehicles developed under Major-General Percy Hobart and known as one of "Hobart's Funnies". It was produced from October 1943, just in time for the Normandy invasion 13th Troop C squadron 141 RAC "The Buffs" saw action on the first day. Eight hundred were produced by conversion of existing tanks. The conversion kit consisted of the trailer, an armoured pipe fitted along the underside of the tank, and the projector, which replaced the hull mounted Besa machine gun. The Crocodile was therefore still able to function as a gun tank with its turret mounted Ordnance QF 75 mm gun. Four hundred gallons of fuel[1] and the compressed nitrogen propellant, enough for eighty[2][3] one-second bursts, were stored in a 6˝ ton detachable armoured trailer towed by the Crocodile. The thrower had a range of up to 120 yards[4] (some sources quote 150 yards[5][6]). The pressure required had to be primed on the trailer by the crew as close to use as feasible, because pressure could not be maintained for very long.

Quoting Jay Rhum You shoud give up with the burden it's carrying behind it... Good tank anyway!
the burdan is actually the fuel for the flame thrower1 but i agree it would be better adjoined to the tank buts sadly this is the correct versions,apart from the colours.which since this was an earlier creation before even ZED CORP i had to use my limited supplies and techniques

i like the tank s shape, and turrets, and historical info, it s great! but, i was turned off by the color scheme, you should call it ;urban camouflage, or something, this being one of your earliest creations, it s understandable. nice job, just the same!

Quoting Jeffrey Donlon Good, good. You did a good job on keeping as close to a color scheme as possible. From personal experience, I know that getting the right color pieces takes time. Lots of time. And, in answer to your question about treads, when you go to BrickLink, go to parts, then scroll down to the category named Tire & Tread (below all of the Tile categories). Once there, go to page 2. The treads are at the bottom. Hope that helped! Also, one quick pointer: If you want to get a blank background (makes picture taking easier. Just don't use the camera's flash), just get a white sheet, blanket, or (as in my case) pillowcase. Or you could use paper. A sheet is more easily put into place.
thanks for the comment and the help and the advice and i hoped you liked it

Quoting Christian Collins I will say that I "like it" but there are a few problems 1 the turret is a bit big 2 the Flame thrower should bee on the hull (but you were correct when you commented on mine) 3 no treds etc. But over all I'll give you points for trying 4/5!
thanks but i agree about the turret but it has to house a length of the barrel so its stable and a man so it had to be large but if i every make a Mark 2 then i will sort that problem but the flame thrower is on the hull its on the front left hand side (its in the middle picture you can identify it by the small flame) also i have no treds so i have to improvise and i can't find any on Bricklink.com where did you get yours?
