Why I give it a one
3 April 2018 | by the_doofySee all my reviews

I got excited when I read that there is a documentary of some guy making a ww1 tank. This is not really what occurs in this thing. Guy martin does not actually build the tank, he's got all these others who assemble it, and there really isn't much footage on how this juggernaut was built by these various craftsmen.

Each person talks about what they are doing, or rather glosses over it, but by and large this is a documentary about tanks, and it focuses on the mark 4 ww1 tank. Its not much of a video on the actual building of this tank

I like the video, don't get me wrong, but if U were to build a ww1 tank, this video would not tell U how to do it by any stretch of the imagination, but rather lets U know who U can talk to to get your own tank built.

Guy turned out to be more of a figure head, of other how to build documentaries I've seen some are much better than this
