Renault FT-17 to American 6 ton tank conversion, by Lawrence Otis (USA).
Out of box FT17 with 37mm cannon tank above, US 37mm M1916 below.
Part painted conversion below.
Many thanks to Mr. Otis.
Ed's notes: The M1917 was the US version of the French FT-17. It had the same 2 man crew, minor modifications and US appointments. The M1917 only had the riveted octagonal turret vs. the round cast and the riveted turret of the French. The US 6 ton tank had either a .30mg or a 37mm cannon M1916. A google search of US M1917 tank will give you everything you ever wanted to know about it and more.
