Mark I “Male”

In August 2014 the world will mark the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War. The war reached out and touched almost everyone’s life in some way or other. Also, this war was the first where tanks were introduced on the battlefields. In the memory of a Great War I’ve build this model.

This is the new kit (late 2013) from Ukrainian manufacturer Masterbox in a small 1/72 scale. I’ve had no problems with fitting, but vinyl tracks has poor quality and should be replaced with an etched parts. Painted with Gunze acrylics.

  1. A great build here Dmitry. I’ve seen this tank in 72nd scale in person & as your picture shows it’s a little one.

  2. This is spectacular…I knew there were some odd tanks during that war. This is definitely a new one on me. It looks great.

  7. Very nicely done Dmitry ,is the grenade screen scratch built or does it come with kit,how does this kit compair to the ancient Airfix moulding ? ,I have a small dio and a couple of other versions of this tank in my gallery ,the WW1 British tanks are an interest of mine,personally I am looking forward to the Tamiya kit in 1/35 sometime this year.
