Mk IV “Male” build (Tamiya) – Part 1:Introduction

1 Comment

The vehicle

MarkIV_1_400

The Mark IV tank is distinguished as the first mass production British tank – some 1220 were made. Notable actions included the Battle of Cambrai in 1917 [1] [2].

The kit

tamiya_mk_IV_male_box_400

Tamiya 1/35 kit [4] [5]. As can be seen on the box, this one includes a motor. I am not going to include it but it is a nice option I guess.

I will be titling this set of posts as “Mk IV build (Tamiya) …” to distinguish them from any I might have written about featuring the older Emhar kit (which I built a few years back) or the newly released Mk IV “Male” by Takom, which I might do in due course.
