Given that all tanks will be supplied with both types of sponson, which gender will you be building ?

Hi Adrian I will most likely go with the male as it has bigger sponsons, and both 6 pounders and Lewis guns, some books mention a Mk IV hermaphrodite but there is no pictorial evidence, what is your choice

I've only seen references to Mk V hermaphrodites, though I admit I don't know how much difference there is between a Mk IV and a Mk V.

Will construct a male version. Simply my favorite tank of them all. The French WW1 Schneider and St Chamond are in a tie for second favs.

For those that want to make their own 1/6 British splatter mask(s) here is a link to how to make 1/6 chain mail:

Can't wait!
