On the Move
This is a 1/35 R/C model assembly kit which depicts the Mk.IV Male, expertly capturing its distinctive form with tracks wrapped around the rhomboid hull. Two pre-assembled gearboxes are installed in the hull rear, each with a motor controlled via the MC-07 control unit, allowing a range of speeds and turning circles, even pivots. Four function buttons on the transmitter can be used to define the model's top speed. Link type assembly tracks facilitate realistic motion for hours of R/C fun! 3 marking options are included in the kit.

A Game Changer
During WWI, much of Western Europe was reduced to a massive battlefield criss-crossed by a seemingly unending network of trenches. The original British Mk.I tank was developed to break the deadlock; the Mk.IV was a later model based on many of the same design principle, and of which around 1,000 were produced starting in March 1917. A "Male" variant was developed to smash through enemy lines and in addition to machine guns it utilized large 6-pounder guns, in contrast to the separate Female variant equipped with only machine guns for armament. The Mk.IV saw a variety of action, including a mass deployment of around 400 at the Battle of Cambrai in November 1917, additionally prevailing in the world's first tank on tank battle with the German A7V in April 1918.
