This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.
The Mk. I 'Mother' prototype was followed by the Mk. II and Mk. III. These were test and training vehicles. The Mk. IV was the first combat vehicle and was used in WWI, in one of the best known actions, being the Battle of Cambrai on 20 November 1917.
The 'Male' was so-called because of the large side sponsons, which held 6 pounder cannons. The 'Female' had smaller sponsons and was machine-gun armed. Both variants had a machine-gun mounted in the driver's cupola. Initially, Lewis machine-guns were used. However, Hotchkiss machine-guns were introduced later in the war (1918). Emhar's 'Male' kit comes with Lewis guns, while their 'Female' kit (EM4002) comes with Hotchkiss ones.
Contains markings for British and captured German tanks.
