This Belgian SP gun T13 B3 was at a time produced by Retrokit and sometimes labelled as Retrokit-FR. After the definite split of the company it is currently being sold under the Solfig label. The same goes for the earlier version T13 B1/B2 (Kit No. R72209).

This kit is very simple as it has only 18 parts. They are cleanly cast and there are only small attachment points on most of the parts. Suspension is made as one-piece. The real vehicle had a partially open top, so you also get a basic interior: engine, seats and turret basket.
The instructions are very simplified as they show only 11 of the 18 kit parts. I have no idea where to put another seat and ammo boxes for the interior.
There are no decals provided in this kit. You can use decal set BE-1 made by Aleran (Belgian 1940 AFV markings).

Editor's commment:
Exokit recently split into ExokiT and Solfig.
Although the boxtop shows "RetrokiT", apparently with capital "T", this kit is currently not marketed by ExokiT, but by Solfig. It appears Retrokit's boxtop label already had a capital "T", which has now been officialized in one of the new companies.
Admittedly, this is somewhat confusing.
