Wings of The Great War WW10204
A7V Tank Display Model
German Army, Mephisto, Western Front, July 1918

Limited Edition

1:72 Scale   Length   Width
A7V Tank   4"   1.75"

The German-built A7V tank was built in response to the inaugural British tanks appearing on the Western Front in 1916. Designs for the A7V began that year though it did not see combat until March of 1918. It was the only German tank to see operational service during the Great War only twenty units were produced and it was equipped with six 7.92mm MG08 machine guns and a 57mm Maxim-Nordenfelt front-mounted cannon. Ultimately, the A7V was not considered a success as it was sluggish and suffered from frequent mechanical failures. Improved variants in the pre-production stage never had an opportunity to see battle. Mephisto is a German A7V tank captured by Australian and British troops during World War I. One of only 20 built, it is the last surviving example of the first German tank and at present is displayed at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra, Australia.

This 1:72 scale, molded resin replica A7V includes numerous high quality features such as textured surfaces, accurately reproduced weaponry including all six machine guns and front cannon, realistic tracking, authentic 1918 German Army markings and camouflage paint scheme, and a removable display base. Measures approximately 4" long.

A7V Tank

Designed in response to the first British tanks that appeared on the Western front during WWI, the A7V entered service in 1917.

Why Resin?
It's very expensive to produce die-casting molds, and manufacturers must sell a large number of models from each mold in order to recoup development costs. Some subjects are so obscure that it's difficult to sell large quantities of them. Resin-casting is a much simpler and less expensive process, and manufacturers can use it to make limited runs of models that can't be cost effectively manufactured in diecast metal. With resin-cast models, collectors can add fascinating and unusual subjects to their collections without the time and difficulty of assembling and painting a model kit.
