Hi this is No 8 on Pete's Toon production line, the French Somua S35.

It comes with the French and German cupolas and decals.

After the fall of France a number (297) were taken into service by the Germans, they modified the cupola by cutting its top off and installing a simple hatch.

I've seen your other builds so don't say you've found your skill level as if these are not worthy.!
Its all modelling, and should be fun.
