British Tank (WWI)







What can I say? I love World War I tanks. They look so sci-fi...so alien...and yet they're antique! The shape of the them is what really attracts me. The rhomboid design of the treads was developed to cross trenches with ease, and yet (to me) added this really unusual aesthetic that is missing from later tanks. Anyway, this beastie was made from scratch using styrene sheet for the structure and many of the details. Rivets were sliced from thin styrene rod. This was a lot of fun.
