Response to hi phil

Hi all: First of all, my apologies.
I agree that I have unwittingly glossed over the complexity of converting Emhar's MkIV-V to a MkI-III, and I hope that I have not confused anyone. The male sponsons are a good point, and I appreciate the correction. The MkI did indeed have different features from the MkIV but all I am saying is that there are some bits in Emhars boxes that can be of use.
I also recognize that the accuracy of the 1/35 Emhar MkIV is not ideal , but I would applaud anyone who goes ahead and uses its parts to scratchbuild those elusive and under-appreciated early Heavy Tanks. The matter becomes entirely one of personal choice. I would personally rather have a model that was 90% accurate and actually get it built than to never build the intended subject. Some modellers would differ, and I can respect that.
As to my intended conversions, I indeed wish to do a MkV* or MkV**, and the determining factor will likely be documentation. I have some plan views that I have sized down to 1/35 and I will likely make my choice at the last minute! Anyone with interest in conversions from the Emhar kits is most welcome to contact me, I have many questions to ask!
