Renault FT [FT17] tank 54mm or so kits

I'm looking for tanks that were actually used by the US forces, or in support of them, at Soissons and subsequent battles. So far, they appear to be Schneider's and Renaults.

There are a number of 1/32 or 1/35 kits kicking around, but does anyone have one they think is especially a good deal and / or easy to make, and a source for it? I'm also OK with one that is a plastic toy or something.

So far, this is the best I've found at $30 USD, but I haven't found one in stock: link

I'm hoping to have an early Patton scenario some day…

I know Trenchworx has made a GI Joe sized one, So They might be able to make you one.

Not sure if it's easy to make – but the price is good!

I saw this, and have to admit that $9 USD for unlimited Renault's is pretty amazing!

A boat load on ebay: auction

yeah, a lot of them have very high shipping prices – coming from Asia and such. There's one for $16 USD with $15 USD shipping, however.

I did find the Meng model kit for $25 USD at one of the hobby retailers on line, but it's not in stock. That'd be the best price, about $25 USD, perhaps with free shipping if the order is large enough.
