    Just came in from a California collection. Seller found himself in hard times and needed to get rid of his toys. Sad situation, but I was more then happy to help him get rid of this really neat piece.

    This is extremely cool. WWI British MK IV style hull with multi-gun turret. There are two levers on the back, one is the on and off switch, the other defines the path the tank will take. All the way off, and it will go in a straight line. All the way on, and it will make 90 degree turns every so often. The side sponsons open, which gives a slightly better view of the inside. The tank's hull is made with no less than 13 different pressed tinplate pieces. There is a faint yellow Bing stamp on the bottom, but is otherwise unmarked.

    Now my large scale Yankee Tank has a friend, this one is around 11" long.
