Meng Model 1:35 - French FT-17 Light Tank Crew and Orderly


Meng Model 1:35 - French FT-17 Tank (Crew and Orderly) - Plastic Figure Model Kit #HS-005

The kit represents two members of the FT-17 crew and a dispatch rider delivering new orders to the tankmen. The tank is not included in this kit and can be found here.

The Renault FT, also known as the FT-17, was a French light tank of the late WWI period. Remarkable for its revolutionary design, the FT-17 played an invaluable role in the history of tank development. It was the first tank that featured a revolving turret. The FT-17 had a crew compartment at the front, an engine compartment in the rear, and main armament placed inside of the turret. This configuration became and remains the standard tank design making the FT-17 the first modern tank in the world. 

The kit includes parts for the assembly of three figures in two variants (there are duplicate parts for each of the three figures on a separate sprue) and a 1917 Peugeot 750 cc 2 cylinder motorcycle
