I'm looking forward to seeing this come together. The St Chamond has always been my favorite WW1 tank, ever since I first saw it reading history books when I was about 5.

Those track links don't look fun thou :unsure:

A hopeless tank as the front and rear overhang allowed it to get stranded quickly. The German AV7 wasn't too much better, but didn't have the overhang problems. The Brits won hands down which is makes the fact that they got so badly left behind until the Centurion even more amazing. Though this isn't the most wonderful tank on field it does built up into an extremely cool looking vehicle. Watching closely Maarten.

What a wonderful looking thing! It almost a kind of Sci-fi appeal. Coming together beautifully Marteen.

That's a good looking scheme. Good shots of the real thing too. Though the wheel arrangement left much to be desired as far as overhang, the running gear was very modern, being much like the WWII gear. The actually shape is very similar to the current armoured cars. The French also worked out that you needed to be able to see out the top easily where as the MK (UK series) and the AV7s all relied on towers that could easily be shot off, the AV7 in particular.

That looks really good mate, the black line sets it off, was that a freehand line?

"Freehand" :ohmy:
I was wondering how hard it must have been to have taped it off.

Steady Freddy you must be Maarten ;)

When I grow up I want to be able to spray paint a black line as thin as that. I would have used a brush. It's a very impressive scheme beautifully executed. Top stuff Maarten.
