Response to Not much else!
Thanks - Checking through my photos and bits after going through the new Vanguard (I'm building HMLS Kia Ora in 1/76th) I came to the comclusion that you can't really build a Mk I without Trevor Pidgeon's Tanks at Flers. Do try to get at a copy - it has the best collection of Mk I photos I've seen, drawings and a "walk around" of Bovvies Mk I and II (The II has the I female sponson fitted). (Bovvies Mk I before they mounted her in that diorama...) BTW if George Forty is right about her serial, she's teh oldest tank to see action, as she was at Bullecourt I think. The MK II did Arras and Passchedaele, but was built later. Remarkable survivals - three/four of the museums WW1 tanks can be proven to hav eseen action.
If you're in the UK, I have teh TM drawings...Will be at teh Yate show in August, Colours in September and Cholsey on 25th of this month.
Which Mk I are you going to be doing?
