Mk.A Whippet tank


WWIM

Recommended Posts

Some months ago I reviewed for IPMS-USA the Master Box set of British soldiers from WWI. I have now paired them with a Mk.A Whippet Tank (Emhar, 1:35 scale). The old Emhar Whippet kit was enchanced some with the Photo etched set from Airwaves. The diorama is entitled "No Man's Land, Western Front, 1918"

Joe - This is a very good build! It looks dark, dirty and miserable just like a WW-1 scene should look like. These old EMHAR kits are decent kits that cost a lot less than current and expensive WW-1 kits. I have a full set of these kits buried somewhere in the stash and after seeing this it makes me want to dig them out!

Thanks Dannie and Gil. I was certainly going for the dark and dirty look of No Man's land. The desperation is on their faces. BTW, you'll notice I also opened the top hatch of the Whippet (not easy with the plastic so thick there) so that I could put a figure there and connect the tank and crew into the vignette with the soldiers. I wanted to create the sense that they were moving forward as a unit. Thanks again for the kind comments.
