French Engineers Stymied as Compagnie du Char Drops Ball
Reliable sources in the French demesne report that the project to supply their armed forces with a small scouting landship (or steam tank) has come to a sudden halt. Apparently, the manufacturer supplied the government with two portside drive trains and no starboard!
From this angle, it seems okay...
An idea taken from another: smokestack supports.
Just some L-iron Plastruct, cut and painted to match.
Now we see the problem...

I am considering putting this on the tank, along with a tricolor.
[Editor's Note: I bought this tank back at Historicon, and just got around to putting it together. Lo and behold: two left tracks and no right one. I've contacted Ironclad Miniatures (the manufacturer) to correct it. I am sure they will - they have a good reputation and I've had one similar issue with them previously which they corrected immediately and with good spirit. On the other hand, I think it is going to look quite good when it is finished!]
