28mm
Saturday, November 04, 2017 - 01:39 PM GMT+7
The latest addition to its 28mm series features the French heavy tank of the Second World War.
The “Char de Bataille” B1 was the main heavy tank used by the French Army during World War II. The Char B1 was further improved to the “bis” version to increase its operational effectiveness. It mounted a 47mm gun in a turret, and a 75mm howitzer located in the hull. Following the fall of France, a number of Char B1s were used by German Army, with most employed as flamethrower tanks.

Italeri's Char B1 bis (15766) is an easy-to-assemble hard plastic kit designed for gamers and collectors. It contains parts to build one vehicle, including three figures. A decal sheet for six finishing options, depicting the tank in French and German use, completes the offering.

Some of these 28mm kits are really nice but why couldn't they do this in 1/72?

They could, but they're being paid by Warlord Games to create these to expand Warlord's range of 28mm tanks for their Bolt Action game. Italeri is choosing to box them in their own boxes and sell them for other markets as well.

I see by the parts layout you can make one of 4 version , a French Char B , German version with split hatch , German flamethrower version with a Flamingo type flame gun , and the later version with the fuel tank at the rear . Might have to get a Warlord 3 kit box , just love their ( and Rubicon's ) 1/56 tank kits
