Did British carriages have spoked wheels during the war?  I know Russian carriages did.  I made a 3D computer model heavy duty flat car that had 4 2 wheel trucks for the Stalingrad rail yard.

Shouldn't the air intakes on the Churchill be off the tank and chained to the engine track return covers?

Thats a good point, I hadnt thought of it. The problem is that its a bought model that he applied to his flats, so it was probably intended for simulation games or something. Ill mention to him, im not sure there is much he can do right now. Thanks for that one.

Yeah, the freight stuff usually did. Im not quite so certain about carrage wheels, I would have to check on that. Probably, I dont believe we had disc breaking until the 1960's or 70's on carriages.
