For all those interested in the subject, or love Flyhawk quality, these is this:
https://www.ebay.ca/itm/Flyhawk-1-72-FH3009-Renault-FT-75-BS-Unassembled-Model-Kits-1-1-Double-Ones/293097207930?hash=item443df4787a:g:OHwAAOSwkZFc4qUP
Disclaimer: Not at all associated with this, or any other, vendor!

I thought it looked a little expensive but there are two kits included, like their initial FT-17 kits.

Thanks for the link. That would be small in 1/35, I can't imagine how tiny it will be in 1/72.

The FT-17 (less the tail) is about 2" long.

Scale not with standing, we need another Tiger like we need another hole in our head. How about some excellent figures from all eras or modern support vehicles.
