Hello to all.
I have just completed my new model, the Mk.A Whippet tank No.A371 named Sphynx.
This tank belonged to the White Army in the Russian Civil War in May – late September 1920, when it was captured by the Red Army. More exactly, the tank belonged to General A.I. Denikin’s Army, or VSYuR (Armed Forces of South Russia), 1st tank battalion, 2nd tank squadron.
The only known prototype picture taken after it was captured by the Bolsheviks.https://polkrf.ru/news/1289/polkovodtsyi_rossii_general_karbyishev

Kits and materials used:

Eureka XXL LH-00 Scale metal tow cable for AFV models Ř0.4 mm
Cotton thread – asbestos exhaust wrap
Painted with Tamiya enamels. Weathered with Mig, Ammo of Mig Jimenez, AK Interactive, Wilder, Tamiya, Nevskaya Palitra oils, pencil graphite.
My mistake was that I chose the Meng kit over Takom for this one, not defining the version I would build beforehand. Meng lacks wooden stowage boxes present on A371 as on the picture.
