Citroen Fourgon HY 1 /24 by Heller

Postby KEG » Sun Aug 16, 2015 9:53 am

French kit maker Heller announces a kit for this popular van http://www.heller.fr/fr/maquettes/nouveaut%C3%A9s/557-citro%C3%ABn-fourgon-hy-3279510507683.html In Germany they will be sold for approx. 25 Euro.

With more than 170 mm lengh it might dwarf the average Gn15 models.

Also announced is a Ferguson tractor from the early Fifties, a Mehary and a Renaut R 4. All in 1 : 24.

Have Fun

looks like Heller are expanding, bringing out new models and some older ones. ,
Already have soome of the diecast vans, but as a kit it can be adapted easier. The Renault is nice, but again is another model done as diecast. At least that means it will have a different appeal.
This might be not dwarf Gn15 too much

His existing models and proposed ones look really good. I'm afraid I'll have to watch from a distance though, the price and shipping will prevent me from enjoying them first hand I'm afraid.
It is neat to see such models available though.

One of the other Heller new relases arrived at the shops. A Citroen 5CV from the Early Twenties. http://www.heller.fr/fr/maquettes/nouveaut%C3%A9s/535-citro%C3%ABn-trefle-3279510807028.html

The first car assembled at production lines (bought from Ford / USA). They were assembled in France, Belgium and in Great Britain.
Opel from Germany copied (stole?) the design for their "Opel Laubfrosch"

The model is only 135mm long and approx. 50 mm wide. Maybe we´ll see one on 16,5 rails some day.

Have Fun

nice to see Heller are re-introducing older models, but still looking forward to the new models , ie the Citroen van and the tractor.
