Hello All,

I am the proud owner of Mk IV kit #36. After meeting Chris (Hall) in person at Bovington , with his wonderful finished Mk IV he has helped me to select B36 Bayardo II, a female that took part in the Battle at Cambrai as the ideal subject, so that is what I am going to do.

Hope to report more soon.

Welcome Phil, I certainly applaud your choice, another B! Mine is Bloodstone II B27.
If I remember correctly, Stephen White will quietly approve your choice as well :wink:
Do say if you need any inspiration for solving problems.
All the best

Phil -

Welcome to the gang ! I've been waiting for you to sign up .... :)

Bayardo II certainly seems like a good fit for you. We all look forward to seeing her in a mass line-up somewhere ! Only another 18 months until the serious Mark IV commemorations come into play .....

Like Steve said, if you need any help, just ask ! And flattery will get you anywhere :wink:

All the best,

Mark IV (Liesel, Abteilung 14, France 1918)
Morris Quad, 25-pdr & 2 x limbers (45RA, Korea 1951)
M3 Lee (25th Dragoons, Burma 1944)
Rolls-Royce Armoured Car (10(RN)AMB, German E. Africa 1916)

Always nice to see another build and No.36 no less, the next one off the CNC after mine :)
All the best with the build and we stand ready to help if you run into any issues.

Oh, and since every Mark IV has an identity I have decided mine will be - L9 “Lightning III” from the second battle of Cambrai, not another 'B' tank I know but I am too in love with the later war ID stripes to do anything else.
Mark IV No. 35 aka. L9 Lightning III

Dear All

Thanks for the welcome, as Chris knows for somebody who works with IT, and email all day I am not the fastest to respond -

Sound, Smoke, Motion packs arrived today - fast running out of excuses now. First step to play with the bubblewrap.....
