    Hi all,

    Let me introduce another very simple paper models. I was ask to build a model of the French machine that few people interested. Do not expect any breakthrough design. The model is simple.

    A little history ...
    In 1950-1951 gg. commissioned by the French military firm Hotchkiss task to build a prototype light armored vehicles for the transport of six soldiers on the battlefield. Upon request, it was decided to construct two machines: an armored personnel carrier to transport infantry and armored vehicle for transporting goods. These cars were built in 1952 and was designated TT6-52 and CC2-52. After field testing machine received a number of enhancements that have been adopted not only by the French army, but - with some design changes, even the German Bundeswehr. In Germany, on the basis of armored personnel carriers Hotchkiss TT6-52 was built by a family of light armored tracked vehicles.

    I like it much, I like this kind of small vehicles. I have in mind the build of some similar vehicle, the soviet T-20 'Komsomoletz', but this Hotchkiss is also very attractive.

    "tryModel's" models have a way of coming out really nice. The potential for "greebling" is incredible. ;)

    Agree with Zathros on the greebling. The model may be simple but the graphics cry out for details. A couple of copies and you can raise the panels to turn this little fellow into a great detailed model. Continue on and thanks for sharing.

    I'm still working on a model ... I try to make it simple. You're right, there is room for improvement. I never published finished models ... deliberately. Everyone has the opportunity to put forward its position ... and yes, texture doing a lot. The model will be able to download (as usual), then you can show what you can do ... :)

    Hi,

    prototype is completed ... missing a few details (antenna, holders canisters, ...). There's plenty of options to improve ... belts, wheels, loopholes, ....

    I expect comments ... if there is interest, I add downloads (range 1.5 A4 pages)

    tryModel (simple as it gets)

    That looks very nice indeed!! Many people look but not all post. I would not take posts as an indication of popularity. Your models stand onn their own merit. They preserve a piece of history, and that matters, a lot! :)

    Trymodel, you could easily change your name to "I make models" or something like that because you are way beyond "Trying"! :)

    Thank you, but I will stay at the "Try". Here I can find many amazing models on several levels above. I admire the work that is presented here, I would like get to this level sometime. :)
