Char B 1 bis

Scale: 1/76

Manufacturer: Matchbox (discontinued)

This kit was essentially built out of the box, with some work on the engine grilles. It assembled quite nice; however, some filling and sanding was required. It represents the "Arlay", destroyed in combat during the Battle of France, 1940. I saw this version on a French Armor Website, and the color scheme caught my attention, once it is different from the classic "Brown-Green-Sand". I used Humbrol paints and the decals were made with dry transfers over a clear decal sheet.

Thanks for Augusto Versiani for helping me with the decals and the pictures.
