Renault FT 75 BS Self-Propelled Gun   4"   1.5"

The Renault FT tank was deployed in 1918 with both machine gun and 37mm cannon armament. It was recognised at the time that although the 37mm gun was quite capable against light fortifications a larger gun was needed to attack established fortified positions. General Estienne, the "father of the French Tank Corps", specified that a vehicle should be developed on the chassis of the Renault FT with a 75mm Blockhaus Schneider (BS) gun mounted. The 75mm BS was originally a short range fortress gun which was mounted in the Schneider CA1 tank. Although the 75mm BS gun had a short effective range, its small dimensions, light weight and high rates of fire made it attractive as a support gun on FT tanks.

  • Painted, fitted, non-moving tracks and detailed non-rotating wheels.
  • Pad printed markings and placards that won't fade or peel like decals.
  • Clear acrylic display case to protect model.

Why Resin?
It's very expensive to produce die-casting molds, and manufacturers must sell a large number of models from each mold in order to recoup development costs. Some subjects are so obscure that it's difficult to sell large quantities of them. Resin-casting is a much simpler and less expensive process, and manufacturers can use it to make limited runs of models that can't be cost effectively manufactured in diecast metal. With resin-cast models, collectors can add fascinating and unusual subjects to their collections without the time and difficulty of assembling and painting a model kit.
