As seen on the Nürnberg toy show:

Release is temptatively scheduled for May 2013.

Looks like Tamiya and Ebbro are now cooperating. The founder of Ebbro is a former Tamiya employee.

Ebbro and Tamiya have previously cooperated in the development of various 1:20 scale F1 Grand Prix model kits.

Super vachement bonne nouvelle! I really love these little trucks. I'm not enough of a scratchbuilder to pull off the conversion myself so I'm very pleased to see this kit coming available.

In the early to late '70s, one of the two local bakeries in my home town used one to deliver bread, the other one had Simca's

When I saw the photo's from the German toy fair, i wrote to Tamiya and Ebbro, and was told the following ...

 

"It is a colaboration between Tamiya and Ebbro with the modified parts being designed by Kia San at Ebbro"

This is cool. I hope the Tamiya/Ebbro coop brings out some other neat vehicles.

I saw a real 2cv recently. I have to admit, after seeing one in the metal I quite liked it. It looks like something you can work on easily. Don't know whether that's true or not. My wife couldn't understand why i liked it. That being said, she didn't like the scirocco r I was thinking about buying either, said it was a girls car. Ben

I caught part of one of the old Pink Panther movies on cable a couple weeks ago, and Clouseau was driving a phone company van that IIRC was like this--a 2cv based truck.   Or maybe I'm miss remembering.   Other Citroens I'd love to see in 1:24th are the funky corrugated  H-van, the classic DS and SM...

You are remembering correctly. 

And I'd kill for an H van. I think the original poster here (Junkman) shared a link to a really nice die-cast H van. But I'm really interested in a nice plastic kit.

Same thoughts, as i saw it in another forum.

I agree. the H-van from Welly i bought and must say: for a diecast i am amused. Like it. But f there will be a plastic kit from it, i will have it also. Like this van since i saw Louis de Fines-Movies :wub:
