Renault FT 75 BS



Last year I bought the Flyhawk double-pack kit of the Renault FT 75 BS, which some of you may remember from the WIP I did at the time. The second FT that came in the box has been sitting around waiting to be finished since the first was done. As I've got a gap in my schedule at the moment, I thought I'd try and get some old part-finished builds completed before the end of the year, and this one came off the shelf first. There wasn't actually all that much to do, as I'd got the hull together while I was building the first one. A couple of days to finish the assembly, and a few more for paint and weathering, and I could cross this one of the to-do list.

No real problems with the build, apart from the decals which silvered quite badly for some reason. The ones on the first build had gone down flawlessly, so maybe these ones had deteriorated slightly in the intervening time. There's not a huge amount of difference between this and the previous build, apart from the camo scheme, but they look good together in the cabinet.

One question - is the chain from the kit?

Thanks Vytautas,

No, the chain doesn't come with the kit. It's 1.5mm brass chain that I picked up from a model shop a few years ago. It's just about the right size for 1/72

Another superbly built and finished model Andy. I built Meng's FT-17 in 1/35 and thought that was small and quite fiddly! Can't imaging how small some of the parts for this must have been. very well done. :worthy:

Kind regards,
