Hi

Here's my Emhar Medium mkA Whippet completed with Accurate Armour "track and grouser set".
Painted with Gunze/Tamiya and weathered with oil paints.

One easily sees the resemblence with our swedish strv m/21 (LK-II) wich copyied the Whippet layout.

Any tips on a nice WWI figure to go with the tank?














Kind regards

Another great looking build, this tank has tempted me a few times, I might need to buy and build one now.

Thanks for the figure tips. The Whippet would look nice with something to give it some scale, its bigger than you might think.

Contact Friendship Models. Ian has some nice WW1 Tankers. They are in white metal at the moment but could be of use. Not shown on his site so send him an email.

Try WD models. They are 1/76th but first class figures

Very nice Tomas. Great weathering. Have you any other plans for this other than a figure?

WOW! Very nice job ..Great work on a very mediocre kit... Your paint finish is spot on. I'm really starting to get an itch for WWI armor..You are making it hard to say no!!
