TDs are from the RBFM (Régiment Blindé de Fusiliers Marins), so some of them have kept their bachis, the French sailors' traditional headgear. Tanks are Armourfast, stowage and crew are S & S models, with some Retrokit sailors' heads swapped on:

The most famous TD of the Division, the Siroco, which knocked out a Panther on the Place de la Concorde, firing from the Place de l'Etoile down the whole length of the Champs Elysees :

Now, another model,an M4A5 from Armourfast as well, and stowage from the bits box

Lastly an M 20 Command Car from S & S (well, I had the decals and wanted to try that brand). It's a good resin & white metal model, a bit pricey IMO but in the end well worth the purchase. Quite easy to build too, I added stowage from my bits box

It was those M10s I have been waiting for……great work to man them with Les Marins.

Never knew that headgear was a "bachi" but delighted to see the unit now posted. I might even be drawn away from Napoleonics. Remind me where you got the decals/transfers?

Thanks for all the kind words, gentlemen!

@ deadhead

Decals are made by Alby, but that's a real hassle ordering from them even here. I ordered mine from tchoutchou decals, I think P&P won't be too much as this is quite light :
