Few more pics of 1/72 Free French Armour in Paris.

The M4A1 is a kit by UM and proved much better than expected. OK, almost every part needed some work to get it to fit, but very detailed casting. It is from 12e RCA, of 2eme DB, but I think they did not get these until later in the War as the US Army was getting rid of them, in favour of the M4A3 76. The M8 Howitzer is a simple enough Hobby master slightly upgraded and repainted. Markings are Braille Strike. Figures either Millicast or Dan Taylor Modelworks heavily converted to FF.

Hope you like them and wish you were in Paris (or indeed anywhere different) right now.

Thanks for that. Meant to say that the three piece bolted transmission housing was a Godsend. A spare from my large box of Sherman spares, this from my two Heller M4A2s. What did impress what that it basically slotted straight into place, suggesting accurate modelling by both companies!
