Hi Ian M just read the start of this thread i thought it started in January so it is a LITTLE early but it gives me time to get some info and the paints i require. But in my defence YOU did say get in early ha ha ha

Well its almost the first of January and to be honest I can imagine that the model bench is far from thought in the festive season.

It was however meant that you could start your thread and post what you would be building.

That looks pretty good & a very interesting kit to build. Think I'd drill out the cannon muzzles though.

You might already know it, but it's well worth looking up the story of the tank ' Frey Bentos ' which was a mk4 on the Ypres front in 1917. It's an amazing tale & might provide inspiration for a dio.
