The FCM 36 or Char léger Modèle 1936 FCM was a light infantry tank developed for the French Army just before the Second World War. Built by Forges et Chantiers de la Méditerranée (FCM), it was a modern French light infantry tank at the time. With a crew of two, it was equipped with a 37 mm short gun and a 7.5mm coaxial machine gun. The FCM 36 took part in the Franco-German battles of May/June 1940.
After the defeat of France in the summer of 1940, many French armoured vehicles fell into the hands of the Wehrmacht. They were subsequently used in various combat operations, but also as support and training equipment.


Because it's important to us!

At Heller, we are constantly working to produce our products as sustainable as possible. In recent years, we have therefore taken many measures to increase resource efficiency as much as possible.

Recycled plastic

Since 2023, we have been producing all Heller model kits with recycled plastic. This gives existing plastic a new life in a great kit while maintaining the same quality.

No bags and film

Instead of packing our sprues in plastic bags, we use tissue paper to transport all components in a clean, protected and environmentally friendly way. Thanks to our seal closure, we do not need shrink film. This also significantly increases the recyclability of our packaging.

Oldies but Goldies

We are proud of our large archive of injection moulds. That is why we rework, repair and improve existing moulds instead of throwing them away. Great models are preserved and at the same time a lot of energy and material is saved. That's why we proudly display the year of manufacture of our moulds and the year of the last general overhaul clearly on every product box.
