That's a Skoda Pa-II, so Czechoslovak in stead of French.

It is Skoda P.A.2 'Zelva'(turtle), also known as OA vz.23. The austrian police bought tree such vehicles.

two pics of it. i think it looks 'home-made' rather than factory built. maybe a Leyland chassis?

Pascal --

That is a very nice page you included with your message -- best drawings of the PA that I have seen. Can you tell me the name of the original publication? I've always wanted to model the turtle in 1:35 and the drawings would be a great help!
