There is a good book on French armored cars and tanks form the Musee des
blindes of Saumur (France) : L'aube de la gloire (Dawn of Glory). It has one
interesting photo of the pilot post (seen from the inseide) of a FT17 and
schemas of the internals of the FT17. It is available at the museum itself.
Here are the coordinates of the book "L'aube de la gloire", Alain Gougaud,
ISBN 2-904255-02-8. Hope that helps.
