This is a plastic model kit, which comes unassembled and unpainted. So glue, model paints and other basic modelling tools are additionally required.

The British Mk.A Whippet medium tank was developed to make up the limited mobility of the British Mk.I heavy tank and to destroy residual enemy forces in the battlefield. The tank was 6.1m long, 2.6m wide and14t heavy. It had a crew of 3. It was powered by two 45hp Tylor JB4 petrol engines which drove one track each. Its top speed could reach 13.4km/h. The polygon machine gun turret equipped with four Hotchkiss MGs was on the rear of the hull. In total, 200 Mk.A Whippet medium tanks were produced. It first saw battles in March 1918. After WWI, it was still active in the conflict areas such as Ireland and Russia. The Imperial Japanese Army once purchased six Mk.A tanks.

This 1/35 scale British Medium Tank Mk.A Whippet plastic model kit realistically represents exteriors of the real vehicle. Machine guns are movable; the drive sprockets and drive chains are finely reproduced. Cement free track links are included; three paint schemes are provided.

This is a great little kit for beginners and seasoned modellers alike... You can build it over the course of a weekend and paint it the next for a wonderful representation of a not so well known subject of the WW1 era... Tracks are some of the easiest to put together and can be done in a typical session at the bench... They are not the strongest of connection between each link so just go easy... The cabin is constructed with long edge mitres to form the octagonal shape, this poses a little bit of a challenge to ensure alignment between mating parts (it does have tabs to assist but youll want to check alignment as you go) but otherwise it goes together quickly and with little fuss... With loads of weathering potential, unusual subject matter and paint schemes, quick build time and low cost, I can whole heartedly recommend Meng's Whippet... It's a delightful kit to take a break from those high part count and complex kits, or even those starting out in the hobby... Well done Meng...
