    Product Description
    This is a plastic model kit, which comes unassembled and unpainted. So glue, model paints and other basic modelling tools are additionally required.

    This is a "motorized" version of the previously released model kit of the French Battle Tank B1 bis. The motorized version allows the modeler to enjoy and experience the excitement of seeing this detailed model kit in motion!

    Upon the outbreak of WWII, B1 bis tanks stood in the way of German armies determined to strike a crushing blow against France on her own soil. The B1 bis entered production in 1937 and was an upgraded version of the original 1920s-designed Char B1. The rivet-joined hull mounted a short-barreled 75mm howitzer, while a small, one man turret carried a longer-barreled 47mm tank gun.

    The B1 bis was one of the most heavily armored tanks of its time, with plating that was 60mm thick in places, amply capable of defending it against anti-tank fire such as that from 37mm Pak guns. It could more than hold its own against individual German tanks, and was greatly feared by enemy soldiers who encountered it.
