Tamiya 1/35 Renault R35 with FCM turret build

Nice to meet you everyone, I am just a Japanese student, so my English maybe a little strange.

I’m making this tank because it’s so cute:)
But Tamiya’s doesn’t include FCM turret.
So I have to make it.

I made ICM’s kit before, so I measured it and drew figure.

And I assembled plastic plate based on the figure.

After that, I adjusted surface and added details.

Turret making is so difficult, but I could built hull easily and quickly.
I was tried make casting texture.
I will add more detail in turret and pe parts.

Thank you for browsing!

I’m happy you to say so.

Very nice work indeed! You make it look so easy… when we know it is anything but. Really like the metal gun shield for the 37mm. Keep up the wonderful work. Hope to see more of your projects!

Best Wishes from Cincinnati Ohio!
