1/35 British WW1 Heavy Tank MK. V

To join in with the 100 year celebrations of the end of WW1, I decided to build this British Heavy Tank. It's my quickest build to date and one of the smaller ones. The only additions being the figures and diorama setting. The main focus for this project was to practise with dirt and mud effects as I have little experience with this.

The model was completed in record time (at least for me) and was a straight-out-of-the-box project, other than the additions of a few figures.

As mentioned, the main focus lay on trying various techniques when it comes to replicating mud and dirt, something I don't have much experience with. With the short timeframe and experimental approach, I must admit this isn't my greatest creation. With that being said, I still think it turned out alright.
