Char D2 -general De Gaulle tank

This section is for builds that are not strictly Tamiya or Heng Long. For instance, replacing the electronics from a WSN or Matorro, or even a scratch-build.

Hello everybody! :wave:
As I have to stay at home due to pandemia, I decided to take up a new tank. This is General De Gaulle Char D2 tank.

Ilgar, you‘re doing an excellent job! I love your builds not only because of the details and quality, especially because they are uniqe. At the moment you are on early french tanks; do you have plans for building a R-35 or H-39 too?

Best regards,
Freddy

Thank you very much!:)
The next project will be B1-bis. R-35 and Н39 have difficulties when setting to RC, but in principle can be done.

Brilliant use of your time Ilgar, Nowhere near enough French Armour of WW2 is represented in our hobby and when you think how many Tanks the French Army had in 1939 that is surprising,
More strength to your efforts sir :thumbup:
I suppose it could be because they did manage to design some of the ugliest and least useful Tanks and almost nobody builds models (Static or RC) of French Bombers of that period outside of France even though they were the first Allied aircraft to bomb Berlin,
The French Air Force had some nice looking aircraft in service BUT they had some really ugly looking aircraft and they were extraordinarily slow. :thumbdown:
All in all French Militaria of WW2 is a rich and hardly touched field of interest for modelers.

thanks a lot!
The French were founders of tank fashion in the first world war, but after it the desire to save money was a basic requirement. Nevertheless the French tanks were still pretty and not bad.
And about aviation, that 's one of my favorite hobbies. I 'm a former military pilot and aviation is my passion.

I think of the Amiot 143 which flew operationally for the first time in 1934 which looks like my garden shed with wings and then look at the Amiot 354 which was ordered into production in 1938 which was described at the time as "The very quintessence of aerodynamic cleanliness" you are left wondering how two four engined bombers from the same company with just a few years between them can look so totally different,
This most especially at a time when aircraft company's built in design signatures that made them readily identifiable, Hawkers Empennage, Heinkels Forward Fuselage, Douglas Mainplanes etc

Amiot 143, Farman F220, Bloch MB.200 have charm as well as B1-bis, SOMUA and Char D2.
