Somua French Medium Tank

View images (60): | | List

Early WW2, French infantry and Somua tank rush into action...must always remember to look behind you. Hidden in a ruined house is a German soldier with a panzerfaust. Having realised (pointed out) panzerfausts weren't around in the 1940's battle for France, so I've included a crack team of German soldiers to get in behind the French advance and cause mayhem.



This album is attached to project Somua French WW2.

Rui S Nice work in the kit, dio and figures, Andrew.
Is the ruined house the Airfix kit?
But if you don't mind and I'm permitted a suggestion, you should use a Pz.B.39 anti-tank gun, not a Panzerfaust, because they didn't exist at the time. (Early WW2).

Andrew Eadon Hi Guys thanks for your comments. The ruined house is an Airfix kit I've had it for a long time I think its titled "Forward Command Post" Thanks for the suggestion Rui, always appreciate advice i'm still learning, i had realized that Panzerfausts were not invented in 1940 and an anti-tank gun would have been a great idea. I have added the photos of the new crew...not really equipped to take on a suggestion is they're removing french officers :)
Hi Ian, the Heller kit was Okay, not a lot of detail but the fit was good. The tracks were a little hard to fit...nothing some super glue wouldn't fix.
Again many thanks for your comments always open to suggestions.
enjoy your day

Jean Tchao Hi andrew what do you recommand for paint colors in order to paint french wwii tanks ?
8. October 2015 at 19:16:17
Andrew Eadon Hi Jean, My references for the paint colours and pattern came from, which is a pretty cool website for any information regarding tanks. The paint colours i used for the turret was dark sea grey from Vallejo, Camouflage Green again from Vallejo the bottom part of the tank I used about 40% German Green and 60% Base grey and a touch of wood brown all Vallejo Game Colour. I can't find what i used for the brown in the middle of the tank(sorry) It was a bit of trial and plenty of error. I washed the tank with Vallejo Brown wash to tie the colours together. I hope this helps Jean.
