Has anyone seen this yet... Takom... never heard of them before?

I've checked my wholesalers' and none of them seem to be importing them into the UK - I think it's a fabulous subject ! it might be ugly but it's gloriously unusual. At least they haven't gone down the obvious route for a tank (Tiger, Sherman etc) in this scale.
Perth Military Modelling seem to have them as a sponsor: http://www.perthmili...news/takom.html
And Takom's site is here: http://www.takom-wor.../sub.aspx?id=11 (they've tried to make it look like an iPhone's message page (why !!??)
Anyway, here's a little more verbage from them on the Renault
From Perth's site, it looks as though they are about to launch a 1:35th scale Heavy Russian tank as well.
Great to see another company taking on WWI armour subjects (a much needed hole to be filled) and in 1/16 scale that is a real bonus.
While these early armour designs can never be called 'lookers' they have their own beauty to them, I guess because they are so ugly they become so likable??
Matt, I would love to see you take this on in the same way as you have the 1/16 Panzar, I reckon you could well and truly work your magic on this :-)
I have one on pre-order but has been delayed a bit so last I heard shipment will by the end of the month. The 1/16 38t also looks like a neat one too... both I plan to RC with maybe turning the 38t into a 38t Jagdpanzer.
The FT is supposed to have a partial interior so I might be tempted to get 2 and have one as a dust queen!
I wonder what the price is going to be?
Nice subject, what with Panda Hobby as well coming into the 1/16 scale armour market things are looking decidedly up!!
I'd love to see some soft skin stuff to go with it too, maybe some figures with the kit would be nice.
