39(H)10.5 LeFH18(Sf) auf Geschutzwagen 1/35 - Trumpeter
This is the Hotchkiss 39(H) 10.5 LeFH18(Sf) auf Geschutzwagen from Trumpeter in 1:35 scale built box stock with lots of neglect. Hotchkiss is one of my favorite tracked vehicle manufactures of the 30's.
Equipped with a 6cylinder, 6 litter reliable engine and about the size of a medium sports car, they could fly along at about 37 km/hr. That was fast at the time! The French just made cool looking hardware! This particular 39(h) is one of many that where captured by Germany and converted to mobile artillery. Painted in Model Master acrylics and metalizers followed with Georgian oils and Mungyo soft pastels.
