Learning to drive. A Mk.III Female from Emhar.
Permalink   


I am doing a small conversion. Trying to make a Mk.III out of the Emhar Mk.IV kit. Why not use the information that I found about it on this site?

The side plates of the sponson's weren't split on the Mk.III as they were on the Mk.IV so I had to fill the "panel line".

Also there was a single row of rivets on the top of the sponson instead of the double row on the Mk.IV.

Looking at the pictures I can see that I managed to mount one sponson upside down

The rivets on the top of the drivers cab differ. There are two rivets close together on the end. I noticed on a picture that this is also at the back. 

I am not happy with how the rivets came out. I will redo them.

The fuel tank of the Mk.IV had to go. This mean that there will be rivets missing. I decided to remove the rest and add new.

The Mk.III was training tanks made of mild steel and remained in the UK. They were mostly unarmed while drive training.
