Polish A7Vs?

One of my local hobby shops has a few 1/72 Emhar A7Vs on the shelves and it got me to thinking about different versions of the tank I could model. I read that Poland ended up with some A7Vs after the war, does anybody have some pics they could share? Any info on which vehicles they were, their use or markings/paint scheme would be much appreciated too.

Thanks,
Andrew

Though often repeated, the story of Polish A7V is a complete myth. It was probably based on misinterpretation of photos of one of the Polish home-build armored cars that could be mistaken for an A7V in a samall, grainy photo. This was discussed in detail some months ago on Landships.

...thanks for clearing that up. Looking forward to getting your book on WWI German armor, btw.
