British Tank Mk.A Whippet + Infantry Special Edition
This excellent version of the Mk.A Whippet was first released by Meng in 2015, while this ‘Special Edition’ has been added to the 1/35 Tyrannosaurus Series with the bonus of a 64-part British infantry set. The infantry set was originally released as Masterbox ref. 35146. The two versions can be easily distinguished by a pale green sleeve with artwork of the tank and the infantry stencilled onto it.
Behind the sleeve is the original box art, which in this case display’s ‘Caesar II’ of the 3rd (Light) Battalion, Tank Corps circa August 1918 which is preserved in The Tank Museum at Bovington. The quality instruction booklet gives a history of the Whippet in multiple languages at the front and a page is also dedicated to The Tank Museum. A pretty straight forward build for this petite AFV, the instructions takes you through a palatable 16 stages. All parts are contained on 11 sprues (an extra one for the infantry), with only the hull separate plus a very nice sheet of decals which give you four options; two British, one German and one Russian.
