Mk I 754
Permalink   


New Penguin illustrate this tank on their (1/72) decal sheet - I'm quite drawn to this as a modelling subject as a mk I in original grey finish with the Cyrllic inscription with gun sponsons fitted. The decal sheet references 'R Pullen materials' as the source, but I wondered if there is a published photo of this one?(Perhaps in his 'Landships of Lincoln' book?)

 

Never one to model just from a drawing, i like to get the 'feel' of my subject! (The Landship List site has nothing on this tank)

I have never seen a photo of tank 754, however there is a drawing of the tank in Richard Pullen's "Landships of Lincoln". The tank was part of the Fosters' production run (739 - 775). As such, it would have lacked the spaced armour bolts on the roof, which were seen on some of the Metropolitan tanks. The serial number and "Petrograd" inscription were located on the front horns of the Fosters tanks, as seen in the photo above.

Thanks guys. The decal sheet shows the inscription on the rear horns, which seemed unusual and a little specific
