I decided to start by building 10 tanks…

There would be one “command tank” with one main gun and a HMG and then three lots of three MkIII Steam tanks each with three 4 inch guns – a nice little tank company.

The tanks were easy to remove from the sprues and assemble. Cleanup is very little indeed. Gluing was straightforward – the tank base and body are held in place by “snapping on” the two side pieces that have the track moulded on so that bit is easy to “dry fit”.

Hopefully painting will be straightforward too, just like Tigers in 15mm scale for ‘Flames of War’!

Next I hope to build one more command tank and try my hand at converting one more tank into a “clamp tank”.

That will leave six tanks, probably to make into MkII Steamer tanks – they just look cool even without the heavy firepower.
