Meng Models 1/35 French Char 2C Super Heavy Tank
Brand: Meng Models
Model Number: TS-009
The Meng Models 1/35 French Char 2C Super Heavy Tank from the plastic tank model kits range accurately recreates the real life French tank designed at the end of World War I. This model requires paint and glue to complete.
Char 2C was a French super heavy tank designed in the last phase of WWI. It’s still the biggest tank ever taken into production in the world. It was developed by a French shipyard, Forges et Chantiers de la Méditerranée (FCM) located near Toulon. It had a crew of 12. Its main armament was a 75mm gun and auxiliary armament was four 8mm machine guns. It was 10.27m long and 3m wide with a loaded weight of 69t. It was powered by two German Maybach 250hp engines via electric transmission. It could drive at the speed of 12-15km/h. Its armour- 45mm at the front and 22mm at the sides- could stand the attack of anti-tank weapons in the 1920s and 1930s. Most interestingly, the 10 Char 2Cs ever produced were named after the ancient regions of France.
This 1/35 scale French Super Heavy Tank Char 2C plastic model kit precisely replicates the features of the first riveted super heavy multi-turret tank designed during WWI. Lights are provided with clear parts. All grilles of the engine compartment are represented in PE parts. Cement-free workable tracks are easy to assemble. Paint options are offered for three vehicles (No.90/93/97). Total length: 293.2mm, Width: 85.2mm.
