Built in 1915, Little Willie was the World’s first operational Tank.
The “Number 1 Lincoln Machine was built by the William Foster Agricultural Company under the direction of William Tritton, and although Willie never saw actual service during World War One, it was a successful testbed for the track drive system that would be used on subsequent Tank designs.
This 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. The model features a detailed interior with Daimler Benz 6 cylinder Engine and Drivetrain, Passenger compartment elements and Driver controls, as well as removable Turret plug for interior viewing, and working Hatchway and Portal covers.
