This is a resin kit from Retro Tracks, a Belgian company. It's a very nice casting that went together pretty easily. The challenge was that camo in 1/72. It doesn't look too bad in the photos, but in person, it's kind of rough is some spots. 

The vehicle itself was not a roaring success. As a tank, it was a miserable failure. It was front heavy, the chassis was overloaded and it was underpowered However, it proved useful on occasion as a sort of proto-assault gun (that's a French 75 in the nose) and as mobile artillery. It was declared obsolete immediately after the war and discarded.
