After the invasion of France, many vehicles were seized to the German service. Many of them obsolete, were converted in some way, as is the case of this auf39-H (f) on the modified chassis of Hotchkiss Modèle 1935, H-39, which was a French light tanks,a le.FH18 cannon 10.5 cm. was mounted on.
On the same chassis modifications were also made by mounting a Pak40. p>
Altaya’s model has a very good quality, it seems that these latest deliveries are raising the bar with respect to that seen in the first. There is no great faults, and everything seems to be OK. A very good piece considering its price, much lower than other Diecast’s manufacturers. p>
Do not miss also the excellent work being done with armored Altaya by Mr. Dauga40, including this auf39-H (f). We had seen some good examples of repainting and updating Altaya vehicles by boys of Brazo de Nelson and MiniatureZone, but the fact is that this guy has carefully worked a lot and although the video footage does not show detail, the mini-dio looks very good. p>
