  1. Hi guys first tank that I've managed to get finished started this last year final done (hopefully). It's a lovely kit to build really enjoyed it! I plan on making a base just got to get so materials but I've got an idea in my head! I'm looking for any advice on this for further improving, I've used 'skills' and techniques from doing aircraft so not sure what other tank stuff I could do so any comments will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for looking! Regards Joss
  2. Mk.A Whippet and British Infantry Meng 1:35 The Model Originally released on its own last year and reviewed on this site HERE, it was great to finally see a modern release of this WWI medium tank. With this special edition release, Meng have included a set of British Infantry, perfect for use in a diorama. The single additional sprue contains four figures, each provided with a selection of accessories and weapons. There is one officer, obvious by the swagger stick held under one arm, the other three infantrymen are in various relaxed poses, one holding his Lee Enfield in a stand easy pose, one with the same type of rifle thrown over his shoulder, whilst he third man is standing with his Lewis gun butt on the ground whilst he holds the muzzle. They are all issued with steel helmets, various pouches and ammo packs, to be used as required. The mouldings are very nicely done, with great detail, including the fact that each face is different, although three do sport mustaches, which was quite natural for the time. Conclusion The Whippet kit is a very nice kit on its own, but the inclusion of the figures will bring another dimension to a diorama with the tank, or even on their own. It would be nice to have more of these figures released, particularly some in a more action oriented pose. Review sample courtesy of
  3. Mk.A Whippet Meng 1/35 This is Meng's version of the Whippet, built last December. I finished it as Sphinx, a White Army Whippet from the Russian civil war. The markings for this one are included on the kits decal sheet, but not mentioned in the instructions. It's a nice kit, probably slightly better (and much cheaper) than the Takom alternative, although the tracks are much more fragile than Takom's. And a shot with its brother from Takom Thanks for looking Andy
  4. Meng Model 1:35 - British Medium Tank Mk.A Whippet Now In Stock SRP £24.99 Click on the image to go straight to our website Thanks to its streamline shape, the beautiful Whippet originated in England can run at a high speed which is hard for common dogs to achieve. So it’s easy to see what British designers expected when they named a tank Whippet. In 1916, many problems were exposed in the first combat of British Mk.I tank. The dissatisfied British Army started to develop a new tank to complement the slower Mk.I tank. William Tritton (1875-1946), one of the creators of tank, was in charge of this project. The War Office called this project the Tritton Chaser, and Tritton called it Whippet. In October 1917, the first Mk.A Whippet medium tank rolled off the production line. It was 6.1m long, 2.6m wide and 14t heavy. It had a crew of 3. Two 45hp Tylor gasoline engines were placed at the front. Because of its small fuel tank, some fuel containers were hung on the hull. Four Hotchkiss machine guns of the polygonal turret at the rear of the vehicle pointed at four different directions. Compared to Mk.I tank, Mk.A was lighter, faster and cheaper. After its service in 1918, the British Army was greatly encouraged. As an famous example, a single Whippet destroyed an artillery battery, an Observation balloon, the camp of an infantry battalion and a transport column, inflicting heavy casualties. Almost a century later, there are only 5 Mk.A tanks preserved in UK, Belgium, Canada, USA and South Africa. After studying a lot of reference materials, MENGs team now presents the replica of this unique Whippet.This MENG 1/35 British Medium Tank Mk.A Whippet plastic model kit has the following features: the exteriors are perfectly represented; all rivets are replicated; armor plates of the turret can be bent easily; four finely reproduced Hotchkiss machine guns are movable; the track links are cement free; three paint schemes are provided. This MENG model kit perfectly represents the unique WWI Whippet tank. Come on and feel it yourself.
  5. Mk. A Whippet Takom 1/35 I've just finished this, Takom's new Whippet. It's finished as A322, one of the Whippets supplied to the White army during the Russian civil war, then captured by the Reds in 1920 and put into service with the 1st Tank Detachment in Ekaterinodar, before seeing action against Polish positions at Stolpshch. It's a lovely kit with very nice surface detail and great parts fit. No interior which is a shame as the rear door can be posed open. It'll be interesting to see how it stacks up against the Meng version when it's released. I suspect the Meng one might have the edge and might well be slightly cheaper. Thanks for looking Andy
