Details

Built in 1915, Little Willie was the world's first operational tank.  The No.1 Lincoln Machine was built by the William Foster Agricultural Company under the direction of William Tritton.  Although Willie never saw actual service during World War One, it was a successful test-bed for the track drive system that is still in use today in modern tank designs.

The available 1/18 scale model closely depicts the No.1 Lincoln Machine as it came from the factory in 1915 with its "boiler plate" body, articulated track system and c-beam chassis construction.

 

This "Add-On Kit" includes the optional Tail Unit (Steering Carriage) used at various times during the development and testing of Little Willie. It is also seen in photos taken at the Press and Public presentation in 1916. The Steering Carriage was developed and used on the Mk. 1 Tank but was eventually dropped due to its lack of practical functionality.


The "Kit" also includes a large printable Base Display and a scale model of the proposed "fixed Gun Turret" which was only ever installed on the very early version of Little Willie, before the installation of the Trutton Track system.

Add-On Kit contains 18 pages including detailed instructions, reference photos and full colour highly detailed parts.
