Ford-Liberty M1920A1

...and I'm back!

I haven't had anything worth posting about for a good long while since I've been pretty down in the dumps for the most part of 2014, and working too. Over Christmas however, I got down to some modelling and amongst other things, built myself a fictional tankette. I call it the Ford-Liberty M1920A1 and its meant to be secret American evolution of the Ford 3 ton tank for future Rocketman games. The last two images show the tank finished, next to my previous model, the 'Suffolk tank'.

If you want similar inspiration then I suggest reading Robert Controys excellent "1920 Americas Great War". A fictionalised account of what may have happened if the French had lost the Battle of the Marne in 1914, which Conroy believes to have been a pivotal moment in the war. Really good story, well written and with plenty of scenario material.

Welcome back, Moif.. Happy New Year to you... Lovely model - will you have another go at moulding this one, or is it a one off??

Hello chaps and 'appy new year to you two as well! :)

Thanks Paul - I'll look for it on Amazon

Steve - No casting for this model. I've put aside casting for now since most of the time I'm doing graphic art/ comics stuff (I'll post some examples soon). I would like to build some more of these, and possibly do a mini tank destroyer variant with a 20mm autocannon, like the Poles did with their TKS tankettes
