Panhard 178 AMD-35

Hi guys ! Another project made this summer : the very nice model of AMC-35 Panhard 178 by ICM.
Nearly made from the box excempt minor details and the worst of this kit : the gun.
It would be perfect from ICM to add a metal barel for the gun but it's not a great problem, some rots of plastic and the gun is much better than the two halves in the kit.

Lets talking the pictures :

AMD 35 Panhard, 6e Régiment de Cuirassiers, voiture n°43 du 1er peloton, 3e escadron, mai 1940.
1ère Division légère mécanique

Le coq de combat, symbole du 6ème Cuirassier est peint dès 1937 sur le capot des AMD (avec ou sans liseré blanc)

Une erreur a été commise par ICM, en effet, l'as de peloton du 3ème escadron doit être vert et non rouge comme proposé !
