FineScale Modeler reviews the 1/35 scale plastic model armored tank kit. France was looking to replace the Renault FT used in World War I, and three companies developed prototypes: Renault, Hotchkiss, and FCM. The tank from FCM was considered the best of the three, but also the most expensive, so only 100 were produced. ICM’s kit of the FCM 36 consists of 242 light gray plastic parts with minor flash and vinyl tracks that are detailed on both sides. Fine welds are present on the hull and turret, and the driver’s and turret hatches are molded separately. The only interior detail is a full gun breech and coaxial machine gun. The instructions are some of the clearest I have seen with only a few parts being added in each step. ICM includes two marking options detailed in four-view color profiles.
