K-Wagen on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

The image above is of the model, it shows track detail and drivers port, but not machine gun port

The image above is picture of KWagen in factory. Look at curved plates to right in middle distance. One plate presumably the tank rear end has a single center port, the other plate, probably the front plate has two ports. There is a blurry heap of stuff next to the far tank which might be tracks, bu there is too much detail loss for me to be sure.

THIS Picture of the KWagen model shows both drivers port and the front machine gun port. Note that the post placement on model does not agree with were the ports were cut on the plates that were lieing on the Berlin factoryfloor.

The URL above looks odd because it is russian cyrillic encoding, but if you can copy it lead leads to russian wiki site with pictures of mega tanks that were planned or in some cases even built.

There are 3 surviving Mark VIII tanks - 2 American built at Fort Meade (where the Mk VIII unit was based) and Aberdeen. The other is a British built Mk VIII and is at the Tank Museum at Bovington and most certainly is under cover and in pretty good condition. (Info Tank Mk VIII The International).

The collection at Aberdeen is being moved to Fort Lee in Virginia to an indoor display area. The move is going to take some years to complete. (Moving the K-5 railway gun and the 15" coastal defence gun will be quite difficult.)

Regards,

Charlie

CharlieC,
Thanks for the feedback on the Aberdeen collection. I visited the Aberdeen collection years ago and was saddened by the neglect of the collection there and apparent unconcern of the curator when I talked to him.
The Patton Museum on the other hand has a very well kept up collection, and an active restoration program. The outdoor tanks are well painted and have none of the cancerous rust spots that many of the outdoor tanks at Aberdeen did. It is well worth the visit particularly to get a close up look at their FT17s and the American variant and to see the Ford tank up close.
The T28 has an interesting story, apparently it went missing for a number of years. I would have thought it would be hard to misplace something that big, but then the Fort Knox area is big and overgrown.

thanks Trent; it certainly looks to be of commercial quality to me!

Hi everyone!
Does anyone know if this model is available anywhere? As having just built a 1/30 Land Ironclad (see gallery) I'd love to do another tank

Orlik released a model some months ago. There are two build threads that I know about.

One on Konradus, and the other here (mine)

The kit is big, and would make the basis of a great model. If you were prepared to invest the time and effort. Both lacking on my part at the moment.

The tracks are wrong and they could have put more effort into the gun turrets.

I would recommend buying the laser cut parts for it. The model calls for 2mm card, A3 size.

Sorry if you feel I have hijacked your thread. I only intended to answer a previous question.
