Product Description

Takom - St. Chamond Early Type French Heavy Tank

1/35th scale plastic model kit. 

The Saint-Chamond was the second French heavy tank of WWI. It was an underpowered and fundamentally inadequate design. Its principal weakness was the "caterpillar" tracks. They were much too short in relation to the vehicle's length and heavy weight (23-tons). Later models, however, attempted to rectify some of the tank's original flaws. The Saint-Chamond tanks remained engaged in various actions until the late summer of 1918, belatedly becoming more effective since combat had moved out of the trenches and onto open ground. Eventually, however, the Saint-Chamond tanks were scheduled to be entirely replaced by imported British heavy tanks. 

Kit requires assembly and painting.
