British Tank in Gaza 1917 by hardbodies British Tank in Gaza 1917 by hardbodies
A british tank in Gaza, Palestine, in 1917.
British soldiers are talking with Gaza inhabitants.
I had few documents to do this painting, so i'm not sure about details of the Mark I Female tank.
The tank is the HMLS Nutty (Her Majesty's Land Ship), destroyed thereafter by Turkish soldiers. I had not enough ressources, so i made an huge mistake, it is visible here that the Nutty had different sponsons type: www.flickr.com/photos/7700258@...

Acrylic paints.
Work done for a Military History magazine cover.

Je me suis trompé dans l'orthographe, c'est "sponson". Ce sont les sortes de barbettes sur le flanc du char, un peu à la manière des navires de combat du début du XXe siècle.

Ah, ok. Les espèces de plaquettes sur le bas du côté du char, n'est-ce pas ? Savez-vous quelle était leur utilité ?

Non non, les barbettes sont les parties protubérantes qui contiennent l'armement sur les flancs ^^ Quant aux plaquettes qui sont boulonnées en bas, tout le long du char, je ne vois pas quelle est leur utilité. :o (Eek)

Ah ok.

Les plaquettes ? Gardes-boue, peut-être ? *hausse les épaules.* ^^

Oui qui sait? Une tentative pour empêcher la boue de remonter sur les flancs? ...
