..try the Airfix "WW1 Tank" with the Matador after market bits - you get a model that is fundamentally accurate in outline, has the right sponsons and nice detail.
Well...I like it!
"Following the tanks" is a must BUT in some instances the authors may have made assumptions in their tank lists that may not be borne out by after action reports. I'm checking this, but it isn't a major problem I think, and more than balanced by the overall approach and presentation.
Please don't paint your Mk IV green!
Best of luck/skill
Seen Banshee on the WW1 Modeling site?
- she's the Airfix machine with the Matador resin bits and bobs of my own.
I'm a bit stuck on 1/76th, but if you aren't hung up on 1/72nd do try this way.
Let me know if I can help any more - look forward to seeing teh result.
Lurve Mk IVs to pieces!
