  1. P 204(f) with CDM Turret ICM 1:35 (35377) The Panhard 178 was at the time of its manufacture (1935) an advanced reconnaissance armoured car used by the French armed forces. The 178 being Panhard's internal project number. The vehicle features 4 wheel drive a 25mm main gun supplemented by a 7.5mm machine gun. It was the first 4 wheel drive type of vehicle mass produced for a major power. A feature of the vehicle was a driving position in the front for the drive, and a separate one at the rear for the second driver. The second driver also doubled as a radio operator in command vehicles. The main gun used was a shorten version of the 25mm Hotchkiss L/42.2 the then standard French Antitank tank gun. To allow for the shorter barrel the gun used heavier charges, this would penetrate 50mm of armour using a tungsten round, 150 rounds of 25mm ammunition were carried. Secondary armament was a coaxial Reibel 7.mm machine gun for which 3750 rounds were carried, approximately half of them being armour piercing. A further machine gun was carried which could be mounted on the turret for anti aircraft use. The magazines for this gun were carried on the walls of the fighting compartment. Approximately 370 vehicles were completed and available for use once war broke out and they were employed by infantry units as well as the Cavalry. When in combat with German vehicles armed with 20mm cannon the Panhards often came out much better than the enemy vehicles. Following the French defeat nearly 200 (many brand new) were used by German reconnaissance units. An interesting modification made by the Germans was to develop the Schienepanzer as railway protection vehicles which were fitted with special wheels to allow them to run on railway tracks. The CDM turret comes from use by Vichy French Forces. Camouflage du Matériel was a clandestine organisation for hiding weapons and material to oppose a German invasion. However it was never used and following the German take over of Vichy the organisation was dismantled and the material distributed out. Not much is known of this organisation due to its secret nature. The Kit The kit is a re-release by ICM of their new tool kit from 2015 (Which we note has also been re-boxed by Revell & Tamiya). This kit also includes a set of 4 figures. The kit has a full interior, both in the fighting compartment, both driving positions and the engine bay. The detail on the parts is very well done, down to the rivets on the main hull to the checker plate main floor, and the louvres on the engine covers. There are 5 sprues of tan grey plastic and 4 rubber tyres in the kit. There is an extra sprue over previous kits for the new turret. Construction begins with the fighting compartment floor being glued to the lower hull, followed by the rear driver’s bulkhead and both drivers seats. The longitudinal bulkhead between the rear driver’s compartment and engine compartment is then glued into position, followed by the eleven piece engine. The drivers steering columns and steering wheels are next, along with the gear sticks and foot pedals. The rear drivers transverse bulkhead is then fitted as is the rack of shells for the main gun, which is glued to the fighting compartment bulkhead. Each of the two sides of the hull has a door that can be posed either open of closed. On the inside of each side there is are numerous ammunition drums, for the machine gun, to be glued into position, along with the driver’s instruments and a spare machine gun. The sides are then glued to the lower hull, followed by the front and read bulkheads and front glacis plate. The rear mounted engine deck is then attached, along with the fighting compartment roof. The engine louvres and rear mid-bulkhead hatch are then attached, and can all be posed open should the modeller wishes. The rear wheel arch mounted storage boxes are then fitted and finished off with their respective doors. Fortunately, the running gear an suspension on this kit is really simple, just the two axles with two piece differentials and drive shafts are assembled, the four suspension spring units are then fitted to the underside of the hull, followed by the axles/drive shafts. The steering linkages are then attached, along with the brake accumulators, drop links, horn and towing hooks. The wheels are each made up from two part wheels and a rubber tyre. Once assembled the four wheels are glued onto their respective axles. The rest of the hull is then detailed with grab handles, door handles, pioneer tools, headlights and a rack on the rear bulkhead. The turret is then assembled; beginning with the breech being added to the barrel, this is then fitted into the turret and the outer cover attached. This is fitted to the turret ring. The large rear entry hatch is then fitted. Periscopes and grab handles are the attached and it can be fitted to the car. Decals The small decal sheet provides markings for just two vehicles. These are in a German Yellow Scheme with brown and green squiggles. There is some conjecture these vehicles were just one colour and the squiggles seen are from tree branch shadows? Conclusion This is a great little kit from ICM of an important French Armoured Car used by the Germans as well. The addition of the vehicle crew makes it much more complete. Highly recommended.

  2. Here is another kit that I actually finished end of last year including the diorama. Its Takom's AML 90 done up in Irish Defence Forces 1st Cavalry on manouvers sometime in the mid- late eighties I think. Decals are home designed and printed. Great kit except for the wheels; I replaced the kit wheels with resin wheel from Blast. The dio is scratch built. regards Brian
  3. I had built a pair of Takom's Panhards and this is the second one; the AML 60 CS. Comments about the 90 kit apply to the 60's. Great kit except foir the wheels which are too big. This car was one of the 16 sent to Cyprus and served there attached to the various Irish battalion's sent there between 1964-1973. Decals are home design and printed. This car( Reg 420) is also featured as part of the Irish Military Vehicles Group collection and I may do another with their insignia. Oh and diorama setting is based on photos I found on-line and the battalion summaries of each trip (in particular 11-13 Infantry Group between 68-70) ; at the time there was a need to have detailed road maps. regards Brian
  4. And the final one in this motley collection. This is my second attempt at building this model, I had planned to build it in the 70’s NATO vs Warsaw (or maybe even in the 80’s one) but at the last moment I found out it was pretty much out of frontline service in France by the early 60’s! Another resin beast for me as usual and one by a fairly obscure manufacturer. Plus and of course now available in modern plastic form......now where’s the fun in building one of those. It’s a pretty basic model but fairly nicely detailed and hardly any model issue. The instructions are just plain horrible, nearly impossible to read and in French.....now where's the wife?? I the time between my first planned building of this I have found a replacement barrel for it which is nice as the original is not that nice and a wee bit wrong. I plan to do a wee bit of detailing on her as well, suspension being one. Nothing major, just to tidy it up a bit. Again this should be a nice straightforward build with some minor detail corrections.
  5. Hi, Uhh, With a little one around the house, modelling is getting really hard, but I've managed to finished another model! Yeah. This time is a French VBL with Milan Anti-Tank Missle Launcher by Tiger Model. First go at this manufacturer and.. Yeah, the model is nicely detailed, with full interior and some extras such PE and great decals, but the flash on the parts was a bit of a pain to be honest. Also there are few mistakes in the instructions as well as missing reference to paint the interior apart from some basic stuff. Overall nice kit. Finished with Vallejo Air series paint set for nato vehicles. I hope you'll like it! Thanks! Bart

The turret ring and turret are then joined and the commanders and gunners seats are assembled and glued into position. The commander’s hatch is fitted with a handle and vent before being fitted into position. The two rear hatches on the turret can be posed open or closed. There are two, two piece periscopes fitted forward on the turret roof, and two lifting eyes on the rear sides. The completed turret is then fitted to the turret ring on the hull, and the last parts added. These include the two, two piece drivers viewing ports, which can also be posed open, the two piece exhaust silencer, wing mirrors and four miscellaneous panels. Figures The figures are all on a separate sprue and are in fact ICM's German Armoured Vehicle Crew Set (35614). There are 4 crewmen one carrying a jerrycan and 3 others in various relaxed poses, to accompany the guy playing with a cat you do get the cat figure as well. The figures are well sculpted.

  7. A slightly older build of RPM Models 1/72 Panhard 178(B). Unfortunately, the decals weren't of any use and only 1 was able to be used. Although the kit was rather crude in some ways, it was very enjoyable, and went together far better than I was expecting. That said, it is missing one of the viewports that is supposed to go on the left-side entry door, and the sprue attachments are massive in places. Plastic was soft and easily worked with, thankfully, and this helped make the build very enjoyable.
  8. Been working away on this alongside other things, it's had my full attention for the last few days, all that's left on the interior is some final weathering (maybe) and a coat of matte, which I'm waiting on from eModels. Ready to prime. Basic paintwork done. After some detail painting, a few enamel washes, a couple of acrylic washes, and some chipping, here's where I'm at.

  10. Hi, this is my first posting in the vehicles section. It's an unusual car, the French-made, Panhard Dynavia. In fact "weird" is a bit closer to the mark. I'm also a diecast car collector, and I have 1/43 scale models of most Panhards from 1930 onwards (until the company finished production in the 1960s) but my "holy grail" was to find a model of the one I lacked, the weird Dynavia. I finally found a white metal kit (for 60 Euros, way above my budget) and so I built it. The Dynavia first appeared in the Paris car show of 1948, caused a minor sensation, but never went into production. Two Dynavias were made. One is still in the French National Motor Museum at Mulhouse, France. The other one, oddly enough, belonged to a Swiss gentleman who owned it and used it normally, as far as I know. It was eventually badly damaged in an accident. The Dynavia had a slippery-shaped, light all-aluminium body, and despite its tiny twin-cylinder 800cc engine, it had a top speed of 130km/h and sipped just 4.3l/100km of fuel. To paint the model I mixed up my own version of the "Seaweed Green" metallic paint, which worked out well. Can't say the same about the roof colour, which is the right shade of green, but I do plan to repaint it one of these days. It's meant to be metallic as well, but there's hardly a glint of it in the photos. No wonder the Dynavia never made it into production. It was just too weird, but the "normal" Panhards that were produced in the 1950s used the same mechanical parts and were some of the most interesting French cars on the roads back then.
