Wow. Very nice tank replicas. Now,I dont know too much about the tanks of the early 1900's; can I ask why theres a beam of wood on top of the MK IV?

As you probably knows the Western front was very muddy due to the wast artillery bombardments. The wooden beam was used to pull the tank out of the mud. I hope this helped you.
