Mark IV Female Tank

The Mark IV, delivered at the end of April 1917, was used successfully through the rest of 1917. It shouldered on through the war but was replaced over time by the newer Mark V and its various models.

A total of 1,220 were built: 420 “Males”, 595 “Female” and 205 unarmed supply tanks.

This model is a “Female” from Peter Pig.

The photograph below is a “Male” with the new unditching beam.

    I’m basically a WW1 aircraft modeling guy, but I think I’d really like to build one of these… perhaps even try my hand at a small diorama with trench, barbed wire, the works. What’s the scale of the one shown here?

      Rick,

      The miniatures are 15mm or 1/100 scale. The modes are a mixture of lead or resign. Oh how I wish there were more model kits in the 1/100 scale.

      All the best
      Jonathan
