Whippet Mk. A

Recommended Posts

Just finished today is my 1/72 Whippet Mk A tank, A347 "Firefly", of B Company, 6th Battalion Tank Corps in France early 1918. The kit decals were used from the EMHAR kit which depicts “Firefly” with a minor few inaccuracies. I built the speedy (8mph) tank out of the box, with the addition of the communications wire reel added to the front. Armament was four 0.303 in Hotchkiss Mk 1 machine guns, one covering each direction. As there were only three crewmen, the gunner had to jump around a lot, though often assisted by the commander. Always wanted to make one of these and gain an appreciation of my favourite early tanks. And, now “Mephisto” has a 1/72 buddy on my shelf. Enjoy

Very nice job on a fiddly model. The seams on the rear superstructure can be tricky to handle with all those rivets.

 

Here's mine I did a few years ago.
