Always great to see early war stuff. Any plan to crew up those softskins?
Would love to crew up the softskins but can't find any suitable figures alas. Figure bashing and headswaps are not my strong point.

Re: Dragons POrtes Les Armees Oubliees

I have bought some of these off Guilhem and they are lovely. The tank crew are very useful for both French or Belgians.
Will be buying the artillery crew once available.

Re: my entry - some French R35/39's

The decals are I-94 decal details - a few different packs - one for the symbols, one with roundels and one with tank names. They offer a very wide range of cheap decals that are useful for all sort of periods and vehicles. I usually pick them up a show - 5 packs for £10

Great work on the camo! Did you use a filter to tone down the brightness?
I used a pretty heavy wash - vallejo black wash and then highlighted with the original colours again. I then applied 2 tones of pigment - a dark earth, then a light earth. I use Abetilung 502 pigments.

Re: French R35/39 Tanks

Thanks Timotheus. Yeah they are s-models. Didn't known about the vision ports, I thought that the upgrade to the long barrelled L35 37mm SA38 gun was what separated the R35 and R39 but I read after your post they also got a new turret. Thanks for the info.

Re: French H35/39's

You're right they are Renaults they only have 5 wheels and 2 and a half bodies. Working on both types at the minute and got mixed up which ones I'd p painted. Thanks for the correction. thmbs2)
