Tank commanders!

There are many new high tier light tanks in World of Tanks 9.3 edition, one of them is the U.S. VII tier light tank M41 Walker Bulldog. This tank attracts many Taiwanese players as it served in Taiwan army before and is still in service for Taiwan marine corps. After 9.3 update release, many Taiwanese players researched M41 Walker Bulldog right away and rolled it out into battles. To celebrate the release of World of Tanks 9.3 update, WG Taiwan office held a M41 Walker Bulldog modelling event with famous Taiwanese model company AFV Club. There were 30 lucky tank commanders who participated in this event.


11:00 Check In

This event was held in a department store in New Taipei City. After the opening of the department store, registered players came  one after the other and checked in. Players who took part in this event were free of any charge, and they received one AFV Club 1:35 M41 Walker Bulldog model and modelling tools. There were many delicate models displayed in the place and attracted many players.




11:30 Event Start!

After checking in, the event started. Our community sweetheart JilsaBB appeared and said hello to everybody, then she introduced the latest information of World of Tanks and the program of this event. If you don't know who JilsaBB is by now, check out the Wargaming_chinese Twitch channel on Oct 3 (Fri) to find out more about her.



12:00 WG Tank Factory

After JilsaBB's speech, the instructor from AFV Club took over to start the event. Not every player has experience in modelling, so the instructor introduced the content of the model first before explaining the usages of the tools. The players listened attentively and some players who already have modelling experience got down to work right away.


After the introduction, players began work on modelling.  They cut parts out carefully with  pincers, then polished and stuck them with cement. All the players looked very focused for fear of making any errors, and they concentrated all their energy on modelling.



In addition to the free M41 Walker Bulldog model, WG TW office also provided a bountiful lunch and afternoon tea.


15:00 Tank Production Line in Full Operation

During the afternoon, after all their hard work, the miniatures of M41 Walker Bulldog started to take shape one by one. The first piece was finished by the instructor, with a Wargaming emblem on the front hull.  Whether it was placed on the delicate palm of the beautiful WG Girl or on the table, the M41 Walker Bulldog model was just as majestic as the real deal, even without painting.



17:30 Tank Rolled Out

In the late afternoon, the event  was coming to a close soon. Almost every M41 Walker Bulldog model was finished smoothly by then. It looked as though there was a real tank factory as the M41 Walker Bulldog tanks rolled out one by one. Tank commanders tagged the Wargaming emblems on the M41 Walker Bulldog model, then they took photos with the WG Girl. After the event,  they each received secret gifts - 500 gold and 3 days of Premium! Every M41 Walker Bulldog model now had a Wargaming emblem, just like the establishment of Wargaming M41 Walker Bulldog battalion!
