A slight diversion - French R35s

Having failed to buy any S-Model R35s at Derby as PSC was out of stock. I took the plunge and ordered direct from China, the price including postage was virtually the same. Although I had some 1/76 resin R35s I always wanted some more.

The package arrived while I was in a lull with my cossacks so opening the kits I decided they would be quick to assemble. Indeed they were, I assembled three as the early version with the short 37mm and one with the later long version. I general Im ignore the PE parts but I did use a couple of bits and some "Sgt's mess" stowage.


The commanders came from the Matchbox Char B1 and a Solfig set I won at a SOGGy auction a few years back.

Out of the various camouflage schemes possible I picked this one as it looked the most suitable for fighting in France, the Levant or Morocco

Very nice paintjob Will. They looks amazing.
I have tried the S-Model few weeks ago for the first time and I am very happy with them. They are very good models, quick to build, but have also a lot of nice details. I think that I will buy some of the French tanks for myself.
