Renault 4CV Sport + Affaires - Heller 1/24

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi all!!

Here's my build of Hellers Renault 4CV.

I've always felt some kind of connection with the 4CV as my parents owned one when I was born, making it the first car I ever rode in....?

My parents travelled all over Europe with that little French car (21HP) and it never let them down.

I decided to build two versions of the car. The Maroon one is the 4CV Sport and the Grey one is showing the 4cv Affaires(Business)which was the base model with less chrome and painted bumpers, hubcaps etc.

Hope you like them.

Beautiful, both of them. In rare cases a model looks better than the real thing, this is one of those cases.

Very nice!

I have no personal recollection of them from when I was young, but on various French trips over the last decade or so I've seen quite a few examples. I feel I'd like to build one as a reminder of them.

Beautiful building on both, and the little beastie is growing on me: it seems to be a French Morris Minor... Mind you, I think the "Sport" might be a little optimistic ?

Lovely models and photography, as always.

best,

M.

They are both beautifully built and I like seeing the differences between the two models.

Heller kits can at times be difficult to build but you've done a great job on both these.

Not entirely sure, but I know they're not too tough or expensive to get.

These are really nice builds.

Very nice models!  I’ve got photos of these all over Saigon as taxis in the Viet Nam War era.

Thanks Tom!!  I've got a 1/43 die cast model of a 4CV Saigon Taxi in my collection.
