Post subject:  Its a Mark V*

In case you missed the post on the homepage, we have a British Mark V* on the way.

This beastie is an extended MKV, with extra guns, was used for moving troops around (although conditions were not good for the men inside!) and fits in well with the GWM tanks size wise, and of course our own ranges.. It makes a nice centrepiece when set alongside MKIVs and you could use it as such as well if your rule set doesn't offer additional rules

The tank was issued to the French (who had it in service to the 1930s although it probably didn't see action in ww1) and the Americans who used it.

The tank was used from Amiens onwards

I have some castings here, along with the master and some moulds, my next operation is figuring out how to get the model into production efficiently :mrgreen:

There will be photographs soon though, I have bought myself a small lighting booth to save setting up all the lights

When the next casting session occurs (sometime this week), I shall be casting up components to send to the sculptor, so the next wave of WW1 infantry releases will then commence and once the production of the tanks is finalised, we will also release the Austrian Romfell Armoured CAR, which we have had hidden away for some time now

Here are some pictures from the sculptor / model maker

Production is still a way off, I have to source suitable resins and make more moulds plus have mould made for the metal components, and none of that is being looked at until next week.

We have already had some interest in ordering and so will be setting up a pre order facility to help with planning the production process

Anyway heres the pictures

As you can see, there are Male and Female versions

Once I have our own assembled and painted versions I would take some pictures of our MKV* alongside the Great War Miniatures MKIV but its about 1 and 1/2" longer - It will make a nice 'Command' tank
