Hi Neo great work as always, just one question why have you change the two lines of rivets under M/G for flat ones ? I'm just curious.

Pete L

Hello Peter!

I have removed rivets while was filling the gaps with putty. So there were no MC rivets such type and I have remembered that there were different types of rivets. So flat type was only I have.

Unfortunatelly first variant of the rod was wrong. Here is correct variant.

Hi Neo I didn't think you had finished it some how, as for helping I think you are probably ok in that department I'm certainly know expert on WW 1 tanks there probably lots of people on this forum though.

Pete L

Hi,Pete! Thank you! Unfortunatelly there are only two-three experts in Russia in network. Maybe more but they don't use forums.

Some fresh information.

Cabin is almost ready. Unfortunatelly Takom has poor connectivity of parts. It was a very big problem and have taken much time.

I need to add some more datails and use some putty. I saw some gaps only on photos.
All pistol ports have movable caps.

Hi Neo, definitely maybe just a small percentage but it won't be as half good as yours bro. thumbs up



The most important thing I think is the pleasure of working with a model. So I getting rest while working with modelsmiley

No one could ever achieve the standard you have. Every one of your models has been to a museum standard.


Thank you Chas! But I know some modellers much more skilful than me.

Hi Neo super work as always, I don't know if you have finish the work on the front of the cab but the rivet under the Lewis gun ballmounting should be removed and ther are some nuts & bolts ot the angle iron running along the lower edge that should be change . I'm not a expert on WW1 tanks so I might be wrong.I'm not being picky but I know you like your detailing to be right.

For reference only, taken from Haynes Workshop Maual on the MkIV it is also in the Osprey book on the Mk IV .


Keep up the great work.

Pete L

Hello,Peter! Thank you for notification. I haven't finished works with front hull. So I will do things that you have mentioned. Thank you! I hope you will give advices and suggestions in the future. I may miss somethingsmiley

Hi Neo

I also agree, your attention to detail is second to none.

Regards Lee

Hello,Lee! Thank you! I think every detail is important, so I try to pay attention to all of them.

04/04/2018 07:35:52

Chas,Scottie thank you for your words! I will be very proud if after this build someone decides to make the same model. It is very interesting for me and for others I think, what can be done with this model if you make the hands and some aftermarket.

Greetings! Few months ago I have promiced to my friends to take part in their Group build devoted to the Great War. So let me introduce to you - Mark.IV from Takom. This will be no rush build in parallel with A30.

This is nice kit but you know melaugh

This is a little progress. Workable.

Cheers Neo,

I thought it may of been Tamiya putty you had used


Hello,Si !

Yes. It is most comfortable material for me to do welds.

Hi Neo,

I'm not a model tank builder but recognition to your skill and to detail has to be highlighted. You have a brilliant skill along side that of Simon T who buys kits I think just to totally rebuild them where the kit manufacture has made mistakes.

This build is of the highest quality....thumbs up

Cheers Mike dogdogdogcat

Greetings, Mike!

Thank you very much for such a high appreciation of my humble labors. I am very pleased. Sometimes we need such kits like a reason to build a model.

Hi Neo,

As said, some very inspirational modelling workthumbs up

What are you using to make the weld beads?


Hello,Si! Thank you! I always use Tamiya Epoxy putty.

Posted by Chas Kenny on 26/03/2018 00:10:52:


The attention to detail is just incredible.


Hello,Chas! Thank you. I continue with front plates. I hope I will show results soon.

25/03/2018 12:28:33

Greetings! I little progress with hull welds and turret bump stop.

Hello Neo,

Wonderfull build. The attention to detail is staggering and an inspiration to modellers whatever their standard.

Looking forward to more.

Cheers, MikeC.

Hello,Mike! Thank you! I am very pleasedwink I am working with this model with great inspiration.

07/03/2018 12:52:28

Some little progress with front hull. Only half of works has been done. British engeneers are very severe to my mind. Very complicated decision with turret shell cover.
