Details on building the MOK Standard 4 Tank kit
These pages detail the building the superb MOK Standard 4 tank kit, to Scale7 standards. It is a superb kit and extremely well designed, however in my usual initimable way I had to modify it slightly. As designed it uses beam compensation on the driving wheels, I prefer sprung suspension so the kit is modified slightly for continuous springy beam. This is no reflection on the kit which will build into an excellent model straight from the box, I just prefer to add a bit of individuality.
Kit and research
The build instructions start with building the ashpan, which is a nice little introduction to the build methods in the kit. It then follows into building up the chassis , the pony truck and the rear bogie.
Cylinders and motion
Work has started on the cylinders.
