Retro Tracks 1/72 St. Chamond WW I Tank

Recommended Posts

This is the first Retro Tracks kit I've done and I was very pleased. The resin casting was very good with no pits or bubbles of "blobs". Everything went together well once I deciphered the instructions. I did have to make a change on the how the suspension units are attached to the hull. They give you four quite small and thin wedge shaped pieces that are suppose to support the bulk of all the resin above. Instead I used four pieces of brass tube. The camo scheme was a challenge in this scale. It looks ok in the photos, but if you were to see it up close, it's a bit rough in places. The vehicle itself was not a roaring success. As a tank, it failed miserably. However, as an assault gun and/or mobile artillery (that's a French 75 in the nose) it was useful, if awkward.

Nicely done, the camo in this scale is quite an achievement.

Don't see it on their website, but I got it only a year or so ago. Might be worth contacting them in case they have some "in the back" as they say.
