Warlord Games Churchill - first lot of stowage

So I have added the first set of stowage to the Churchill.

The wrapped item after the air intake was based on a photograph on page 41 of the Osprey New Vanguard book. The back pack former was filled with green stuff. It will be detailed on the next pass.
The lower roll on the turret side was added first. Once it had set two additional pegs were added above it and again once set another bed roll was added.
Clearance was checked on the turret.
The exhaust outlets on the rear deck were drilled out, first with a 0.8mm bit, then a 1.6mm bit.

The back pack former was filled as above.
With the lack of availability of the metal ammunition boxes or similar stowage, a piece of 4mm square tube was cut and pinned between the fuel tank supports. The intention is to cover it with green stuff to simulate a tarpaulin wrapped box.
