It's also surprising that Meng or Takom didn't do the most well known tank the MKIV first.



The FT 17 is just as historically valid as it was the first "Modern" tank design and then went on to serve in the following war. it was a lot broader a subject and therefore less risk than a Mk IV but I agree when compared to a St Chamond.

Has anybody checked out Perth Millitary site lately? Under new kit news on Friul Model page there are new tracks for the MK II MK IV and more. Maybe they know something? Rick

No doubt the FT17 was just as historically valid and yes it's served in WW2 and other conflicts but I was talking about the most well known.

Good observation but that's most probably to dress up the old Emhar kits seeing as they've got the sprocket and idler wheels.
