It’s not to late… to Whippet… Whippet good…

Sorry my Devo is showing. My first finished model in a while is Emhar’s old 1/35 Whippet, a Christmas gift from my kid. A British WW1 “exploitation” “tank”, this was designed to be the fast vehicle to drive thru holes punched in the line by the big “Rhomboid” tanks, hence named after the fast canine. Clever, eh? The ancient model went together surprisingly well, I was really surprised by the ugly rubber tracks, which glued together fine with Tenax liquid cement, despite some molding flaws on one run. I slapped it together only using what was in the box, finish is Humbrol #26 Khaki and Tamiya weathering sticks. The decals turned out to be WAY big, so the flashes, B/6’s and IX’s are hand painted with Vallejo white.
“Crack that Whip”….Cal Steve will get this, I know it.
