Takom St Chamond, 1917

A fussy kit, but worth the effort, the running gear/suspension is very complete (and complex) the base shows a mostly level, dry spot, where the St Chamond was at it’s best

  1. Nicely finished and photographed, sir.

  2. I saw one of these kits both on show and for sale at the East of England show weekend before last. Yours is a fine example.

  3. Merrill,
    Very Nicely done. Great paint work and it is perfectly displayed.

  4. Both the St Chamond and it’s French ‘competetor’, the Schneider, used as a basis the US Holt tractor. Both were the French idea of a heavy tank, a field gun under armor, Neither was particularly manuverable, as a result, there are lots of photos of St Chamonds destroyed by German artillery, still, they were better than the German A7V.

  5. Nice work, an unusual piece of armor. The tracks and paint scheme are look very realistic.

  6. These early tanks make interesting models, good work, Merrill.

  7. Great build and very nice presented, love it !
