Wings of The Great War WW10209
Mark A Whippet Tank Display Model
British Army, #A347 Firefly, 1918

Limited Edition

1:72 Scale   Length   Width
Mark A Whippet Tank   3.25"   1.5"

World War I, a time when battle tank manufacturing was in its absolute infancy, offers us but a glimpse of the powerful, versatile, and lethal armored vehicle technology that would rapidly progress before the outbreak of World War II. Among these earliest designs was the British-built Mk. A "Whippet" a medium tank developed to complement the heavier, slower tanks already in service with the Army. It first saw combat action in March of 1918, proving very effective at covering infantry withdrawals during the Spring Offensive.

Whippet #A347 "Firefly" is currently on display at the Royal Museum of the Armed Forces and Military History, Brussels. This tank, part of B-Company, is still in its original paint and markings. It still carries battle damage from when it was hit on 17 August 1918.

This 1:72 scale resin model replicating the old warhorse features textured surface details, accurate weaponry (including four Hotchkiss machine guns), realistic tracks, authentic British markings, and a removable display stand.

Mark A Whippet Tank

Designed as a smaller and faster tank to support existing heavy tanks, the Mark A first entered service in 1917.

Wings of The Great War

The Wings of The Great War range presents affordable, ready-made resin models of WWI aircraft. Each model is crafted and painted by hand and features a unique pivoting stand that allows the model to be displayed at a variety of different attitudes.

Wings of The Great War display airplanes feature:

  • Molded resin construction with no assembly required.
  • Fixed, non-rotating propellers and wheels.
  • Poseable presention stand to display the aircraft "in flight".

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.
