The figure will add more realism to an already awesome weathered tank and base. :cool:

The Whippet has always been a Tank I liked and this is a very nice and lifelike one. Comparing the figure there realy is not much room for guys in that superstructure. Devo: "Whippet, Whippet good!"

Beautiful! I love the mud effects. This reminds me that: a) WWI Tanks are really cool; and b) I really need to learn how to make a base for my Panzer I Breda.

How is that Meng kit, by the way? Would you recommend it for a beginner, @Wolf Star ? I'm looking for easy to build kits that I can quickly get to the painting and weathering stages (the latter being the only thing I can do well...).

Thank you!
The Meng kit is good, but not great IMO. Some of the armor facets are weird in that you have to carefully fold/glue as if they were made from photo etch but they are just stryrene parts. The tracks are fiddly and fragile once assembled, and I had considerable issues getting them to stay together. I ended up gluing them all on once painted. It's a pretty good kit as far as fitting, but those issues detracted from its greatness. It doesn't have the grace of say a Tamiya kit. I would like to get the Takom Whippet to compare in the future.

The superdetailer could have a field day with it.
