Product # PASP35007 for Tamiya kit

Product Article by Steve Bamford on Dec 3 2012


This detail set from Passion Models is available directly from Hobby Link Japan.

The French Char B1Bis tank was a formidable weapon that confronted the German tanks during the Battle of France in 1940.  The German tank crews found it a sobering tank to go up against, but this French tank was thirsty for fuel and slow moving which caused it problems in battle.

This set give you 4 machined metal parts which include:

  • tiny machine gun barrel for turret next to 47mm gun

  • 47mm tank gun for turret

  • 75mm howitzer main gun with circular mounting part

One very cool feature of this set if the circular disc part that the 75mm barrel mounts into......this will permit the main barrel to be raised or lowered.  This is an expertly machined set that would be the perfect detail set to add if you are building this WW2 French tank.
