How about that. The ancestor on my dad's side came over as a slodier too. He was in "Les compagnies franches de la marine". He came over around 1700. The one who came in 1658, David Létourneau came as a settler and settled on Orleans Island, in the St-Lawrence more or less in front of Quebec City. The house he built for his son still stands and is still owned by a Létourneau.
Have you heard that the Transtar 4300 has just been reissued? Yes, I am very glad, it is a kit with which I was very invloved. The Sales Engineering manager was not pleased that it was first released back in the 70's as a short hood 4200 with a Cummins VT903. He was right, the VT903 was a flop. Is that why my 4300 kit has a 903 on the outside of the box and a V800 inside?
Bienvenue Louis. Moi aussi mes ancêtres sont venus de France. My mother's family is from Muron, near La Rochelle.They came here a few years ago in 1658. We haven't figured out where my father's family is from.We suspect it is Avizes, south of Reims. There are several other modelers from France on here.
