I'm sure I read somewhere (thought it was on this site but can't find it now!) that the 2 stowage bins in front of the main turret where later additions just prior to WW2. Can anyone confirm if this is indeed the case or I simply imagined it? Any photos would be great too.

Many thanks

Gary

 

EDIT: Think I've found the answer to my question!

Anyone have any further info about this particular tank - No.91?

Here som links for more information.
The FCM2c never saw war operations in the great War 14-18.
In WWII they where saborded on the railway convoi to prévent they fall in  ennemy hands.
Only the 91 was récuperated by whermacht en sent to Berlin.
The n° 97 "Normandie" received an heavier armour in august 1939 you can see it in the link www.worldwarphotos.info/gallery/france/tanks-france/char-2c/

Char 2C #91 was badly damaged when the tanks were blown up by the French. Most images show the left side - the right side

had a large hole (attached). #99 was taken by the Germans - I've read that it was later captured by the Red Army and was photographed

in (then) East Germany in 1948.

CharlieC, you are right I made a number mistake; it is te n°99 that was taken by the germans and not the n° 91.
There is a very little hope that the n° 99 may be still existing somewhere in Russia today.

Thanks for the answers guys. Much appreciated.

Here's where I'm at with the build....

Any definative evidence out there as to colour used on the 2c? Instructions say Vallejo 71.015 which is similar to Tamiya XF27 Black Green (I prefer Tamiya paints). Is this likely to be correct?

The 1925 instruction says uniform "vert olive matt". I think Tamiya XF-62 would be too dark and XF-71 too light.

XF-27 seems to be similar to dark Brunswick Green which possibly isn't yellow enough and too dark.

The images of the Char 2C seem to suggest a single colour - no camouflage.
