Tank Mark IV Male

Thought I'd make another MkIV Male. I only have one other and it's from years ago:
As you can see, it's a bit beaten up, but, surprisingly, it doesn't look as bad as I thought it did. I used the Matador Models sponsons on that one because, as we all know, the Emhar sponsons are the wrong shape.

On this new one I decided to use the sponsons from Mister X Models. The Emhar gun barrels have been sanded to remove mould lines and the ends drilled out. The gun shields have been cut to fit the Mister X sponsons. Some plastic strip has been used to fill the hole that the gun pokes through; another fault with the Emhar kit.

There are a number of problems with the Emhar MkIV; the sponsons are just the first.

To be continued.
