Mark IX "Pig" Supply/Infantry Carrier, 1918.

All this was Ignatieff's idea over on LAF. I found a free download of a 1/72 scale paper model here. I re-scaled it up to 1/56 and took the pieces as a template for this cereal packet model. Again, just having a go to see what can be achieved with this very inexpensive method and, more importantly, by not spending hundreds of hours on building and painting. The detail is drawn on with black ink. I'm still learning with this method, but it is very satisfying to see something that one creates from scratch.

And here is a real one.
And here is a video.

Great looking kit, I would have never have guessed it was cardboard from first glance.

Outstanding scratch building. Very unique model too. This will be a great scenario center piece.
