My first impressions of this kit:
that the main distinguishing feature between a Pz.Kpfw.35S739(f) and
a regular Somua S35 is the commander's cupola that was added by the
The corrections that I have made are the following:
While the turret is incorrect, I didn't modify it.
Meanwhile, I have finished the construction of the S-Model kit.
The kit was finished with spare Dragon decals.
Walkaround of the Saumur S35 by Philippe Edern
The Guichard headlight is correct. It just needs a bit of sanding.
The horn in Saumur seems to be a late type The kit has the early, conical type, which needs to be hollowed out.
The weakest point of the kit is the turret, which has the wrong shape.
The lifting hooks are missing. The hinge for the hatches can be hollowed out.
The hatches need to be sanded to better fit the cupola.
The PE hatches are completely flat. A small strip of plastic needs to be added.
For the German version some coffers need to be left off to be able to fit the antenna base. I cut the parts up to obtain this and added the rod below.
The footstep was added with a strip of aluminum sheet.
This hatch is well done.
This German antenna base is lacking in the kit; only the French antenna is given.
The handles are not well done in the kit.
Two handles to be added.
A hook and a handle to be added. Good luck adding the numbers and letters.
A hole needs to be added for the evacuation of water.
A handle needs to be added.
An axe and pick axe can be found in the kit here.
This hatch is lacking in the kit as S-Model adds some stowage here.
