Hello. I am trying to find some info on the latest release from Takom in 1/16th scale - the FT light tank (3 in 1 kit). Thre seems to be plenty of info on internet regarding the 3 previous releases of this kit but nothing on this latest release. Looking for a kit to base a WW1 dio on and wondered if this will fit the bill? Boxart shows a WW2 captured tank in German service. Any help

Well,i donīt know for 100%,but i think the 3in1 is just all three turret options on the same base hull.I built the initial release "Char Canon/Girod Turret" and the other releases differ only in the turret as far as iīve seen it.
These are Girod with Cannon,Girod with Machinegun and Berliet with Cannon.The Girod is a round cast turret,the Berliet a hexagonal,riveted turret.Referring to scalemates,all have decal and painting options for WWI units.
So itīs not important which kit you get,they should all be the right one.

BtW: This is mine...not finished,but close to..
