Airfix Mk1 Tank “Mother ” Dio 1/72
Hi to all of you iModellers, it’s been a while since I posted anything but as I’m stuck indoors along with the rest of the world I decided it was a good time to catch up.
This is my interpretation of the original picture showing the prototype Mk1 tank undergoing trials in January 1916 in the grounds of Hatfield house, Hertfordshire ,U.K.
It is based around the ancient and inaccurate Airfix kit which still builds up into a nice tank but needs some research to be correct, I’m told that when the guys from Airfix did moulds for this kit back in the 1960’s they used for there drawings an original tank in Bovington tank museum that was actually a mish mash of different machines ,a similar story to the one about the Tamiya Mk1 Meteor which has the wrong wings.
Anyway hope you like, it all comments are welcome.
