I'm currently working on an FT-17 (the version with the cannon, not the MG) and am including a full interior using the Armo sets (fighting compartment and engine). However, I'm kind of stuck on how the ammo racks work. I remember that there was an article in Military Modeling long ago that detailed how to build the ammo racks correctly, however somewhere along the way I've lost the article. I know that there should be ammo racks on both sides, and I believe that each shelf of rounds could be folded to the sides of the fighting compartment as they were emptied. However, after looking at the photos I've got, I haven't been able to discern how the folding mechanism works or how the rounds were held in place (although on the latter I'm guessing they simply hung in holes in the shelves, with the firing plate of the shell keeping it place via gravity). I've got some photos from the internet, but nothing that actually shows a shell in place. Anyone have any photos of the shell racks?
And while I'm asking anybody have any photos of the engine compartment? I've got photos of the engine itself, but not in the vehicle and the compartment looks rather bare.
i have not seen any pictures of US 6 tonners in Afghanistan. I have checked the pictures of the Renaults, and they are without doubt Renaults, and definitely not the updated 31. and they do not have engine compartment bulkheads. they are, without doubt, genuine Renault FT 17
