Absolutely agree with that statement.

There are hardly any large (1/25) scale models of the interwar and WW2 French tanks and very few small scale models. There are no 1/25 models of the WW1 Schneider CA1 or even the Renault FT (GPM has an old model of a Polish FT but this out of scale and has errors).

Regards,

Charlie

Very interesting, indeed. I started an ACG1 some years ago in 1/72 scale, but didn't finish it.

What is the scale of your models? I see the suspensions are simplified in the models shown. Will there be optional suspensions with more detail?

Nicely done. I look forward to seeing the finished models.

Looking good

How are they all to be displayed. Together, separately or in a Garage
