The Mark IV was a British tank of the First World War. Introduced in 1917, it benefited from significant developments of the Mark I tank (the intervening designs being small batches used for training). The main improvements were in armour, the re-siting of the fuel tank and ease of transport.The Mark IV was first used in mid 1917 at the Battle of Messines Ridge. It remained in British service until the end of the war, and a small number served briefly with other combatants afterwards.

The Mark IV "Male" variant carried three Lewis machine guns and two FQ 6 pdr 6cwt guns, while the "Female" variant carried five Lewis guns but no 6-pounders.. A total of 1,220 Mk IV were built: 420 "Males", 595 "Females" and 205 Tank Tenders (unarmed vehicles used to carry supplies), which made it the most numerous British tank of the war.

Mark IV Tank

Designed as a more heavily armoured enhancement of the Mark I Tank, the Mark IV first entered service in 1917.

Gaso.Line Master Fighter

The Gaso.Line "Master Fighter" model range presents ready made resin models of military vehicles.

Master Fighter display model vehicles feature:

  • Molded resin construction with no assembly required.
  • Metal barrels, photo-etched metal grills and surface details.
  • Rotating turret and accurate hull.
  • Painted, fitted, non-moving tracks and detailed non-rotating wheels.
  • Pad printed markings and placards that won't fade or peel like decals.
  • Clear acrylic display case to protect model.

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.
