The FT-17 is a 28mm resin cast model kit that is supplied unassembled and unpainted. This kit was the result of our successful Tanks of WWI kickstarter event in 2014.
This kit comes with all turret options and the Type 79 KoGata weapon variants.
The Renault FT tank was one of the most innovative and influential armored fighting vehicles of all time. Being the first tank produced with a rotating turret, it forever changed the way tanks are designed. Built toward the end of World War I, the FT saw action with French and U.S. forces. After the war the FT was exported to several European countries and it served in many interwar conflicts such as the Russian, Chinese and Spanish Civil Wars.
Although outdated by 1939 the FT was still used in small numbers at the start of World War II by France, Finland, Poland and Yugoslavia. By then the 37mm cannon had mostly been replaced with a Hotchkiss machine gun.
Production Years: 1917 – 1918
