Takom’s stunningly detailed kit of the Mark IV “Female” tank features workable indy-link tracks, a fully reproduced suspension and drive system with workable wheels, photo-etched metal detail parts, markings for two variations, and a 1/35 figure of a German photographer with camera, circa 1917.

The 27-ton Mark IV “Female” was so named due to its lighter armament: five Lewis machine guns mounted in the bow and in small sponsons on the sides of the hull (the heavier “Male” was armed with two 6-pounder cannons mounted in much larger sponsons, plus three Lewis machine guns). Capable of a modest 6.4kph, the Mark IV tanks caused quite a shock on the battlefield when they were first introduced.
