A Paris "Marne" Taxi from ICM in 1/35
Permalink   


ICM have announced a 1/35 1914 Paris taxi, as used to ferry troops forward to stop the German advance at the River Marne.

 
Now all we need is some enterprising figure company to do a driver and some Poilus crammed in the back.  I am perhaps surprised that ICM didn't launch a set too: it's the passengers that make it a Marne taxi, otherwise it's just a taxi.  Don't know if you can build it with the rear canopy down.  Sounds like another after-market opportunity if not.

It is due late June in the UK.

Not sure about figures, when it was announced it was displayed with ICM's existing French figure set.

It will be light years ahead of the Mach2 1/35th kit of the same prototype.

ICM have released a figure set including a driver, but the 3 Poilus are in action poses rather than passengers. Not ideal.

There is also now a nice-looking etched brass set for this kit available from Microdesign in Russia here microdisign.ru/

 The figures are odd, designed to stand on the running board or sit (cling?) on the roof, while leaving the interior empty.
