It may be small, but Tamiya's UE weapons carrier is a nice kit! Goes together well, and looks very unusual...

The Hobby Boss R35 and the Bronco H39 kits are decent builds. Not Tamiya level but then who is? Tamiya does have the R35 out now and though I haven't built it I have no doubt that it is an excellent kit.

Hello fellow scale modelers,

It has been quite a while since I have last posted something in here.
I'm looking for a good kit of French WW II armour, I have already made the Tamiya B1 Bis, French variant, not captured by the Germans.
And have made the Somua S 35 from Tamiya as well.
I have been looking on the internet for reviews on these kits, but or the kits are really old. Or I can't find good reviews of them on the internet.
And this is taking a long time, and I'm getting impatient.
It has been months ago since I have build a new model kit and I'm finally wanting to build something and get to work on it.
Another reason that I want to continue build French WW II tanks is that I have studied them, bought some books to study them.
Two of the few English books that I could find online.
And I'm having a lot of paint left from previous projects that I want to use up.
Because I'm not wanting to waste my paint and want to save on paint cost, buying fewer new jars and bottles as it is possible.
The paint bottles that I got left from the projects that still have a large amount in them are: X-21, X-10, XF-58, XF-21, XF-55, XF-24, XF-23, XF-64, X-11, XF-16, XF-57, XF-69, XF-59.
So, I'm hoping that you can help me out.
Thank you in advance.
