I just realized that the finished images of the Somua s35. It's Flames of War 1/100 scale.
It was an intriguing design, as it was a style of drive wheels that transitioned between the WWI type of treads to a more recognizable Second World War design. The Matilda had a similar kind of 'guard' on the wheels, which was intended to control mud and dust dispersion.
A large number of unusual vehicles which began the war were eventually weeded out, as the demands of new combat tactics were recognized.
Thanks to Rich for doing some of that spot research for me!
I look forward to exploring more of these unique early war vehicles, and playing out those campaigns in Western Europe, North Africa and the Levant!
Which begs the question... will these two sides be Allies, or Adversaries?
