Mark IV 3D CAD drawings
Permalink   


I also forgot to post progress on the tank model itself. It is mostly finished now, I miss only some details of certain modifications. Here is a rendering of the Mark IV model with female sponsons and unditching beam rails as seen on Flirt II at Wailly (which however did not have the fascine hooks as shown here):



I am still looking for information about the front cab roof hatch which was present on some tanks (I mean not the hatch as seen on Beute tanks, which was different to the original British hatch). The hatch of the Mark IV has distinct differences to the one found on the Mark V, and I lack a clear photo which shows the inside of the hatch. If someone here has such a photograph and wants to help me, I'd really appreciate it!

Best regards,
Thorsten

Magnifique !
Thorst : Placing the 2 hooks on the roof of the cab for the fascine , you will have to place the 2 hooks on the glacis , they go together.
Best Regards
Olivier

You are right. It is not an error in my model, which includes the hooks. I only missed to include them in the render. It took 3 hours on my computer to calculate, so I didn't redo it.

Hallo!

Can you advise the software you are using ?  It looks a good deal like Rhino.

Thorsten,

I had forgotten about an Australian modelers site which has detailed walk around photo's of "Grit" the Mk IV at the Australian War Memorial which is in its original state from when it was shipped to Australia in 1918 to help with War Bonds fund raising. here it is www.ammsbrisbane.com/ajax/reference/Mark_IV.html

Cheers,

Thorsten,

As pointed out by CharlieC on a thread regarding the colour of WW1 British tanks, I gave you the incomplete URL:

"The URL for the AMMS page is incorrect - it should be: www.ammsbrisbane.com/home.html

(it's a similar setup to the Landships II pages - you need a special URL to load in the whole page rather than a broken version

of the content only)."


Thanks to CharlieC.
Cheers,
Chris

Chris, thank you. I already have these saved in my files, but it's very kind!

Best regards,
Thorsten

An amazing piece of 3D modelling there Thorsten. A lot of hours work. You should be rightly proud of what you have achieved.
