World War 1 - Eleventh Hour - MK A Whippet - 1/35 Takom

Recommended Posts

This is one of my two builds for the Eleventh Hour: Commemorating the end of the Great War - Group Build.

 

Information about the Medium Mark A Whippet can be found here.

 

This was a good kit to build and, despite some odd shapes to fit together around the crew compartment, it goes together very well.  I made this to be part of a small vignette together with a Renault FT-17 and a few figures from Master Box. The RFI photos of the FT-17 can be found here.

 

Kit: 1/35 Takom

Paints: Humbrol, Revell, Citadel and Railmatch Acrylic paints all applied by brush

Extras: None for the tank itself just some stowage items from the Meng FT-17 kit and  Academy. Most of the weathering was done with acrylic paints and the mud is from Vallejo.

 

WIP thread: Here

Vignette photos can be found: Here.

Excellent. Great painting & weathering.

 

I spent a mint on the Accurate Armour Whippet just before the Takom one came out. D'oh!

Hi Pete and thank you very much for your comments. Isn't it always the way about some kits appearing just a bit too late? - either, like yours, one appearing after you've bought a more expensive other manufacturer's kit or one appears of one you've spent a load of time converting from another version or two!

Kind regards,

Stix

Lovely rendition of this remarkable tank. The crew obviously haven't had to use the grousers, which look to be in pristine condition.

Nicely done. Also other tank and figures are well done and base bond it together.

Hi beefy and thank you very much for your kind comments. I must try and do a few more of them in black and white - it's always interesting to see how B&W makes them look 'more of that time'.

Kind regards,

My opinion is that the FT is still the best......but this runs it a close second. Nice one Stix.

Hi riever49 and thank you very much for your comments. Yes they are a bit too neat and tidy - perhaps, like you suggest - they haven't had to use them yet and have been well looked after!

Kind regards,

Yet another superb result Stix,

 

I love the mud on the tracks, which looks very realistic to my eye.

 

All the best Greg😁
