With the stages of the Tour de France 2017 on TV, I could not resist so I decided to paint the metal riders of the Fonderie Roger with the colors of the teams of the Peloton 2017.

Here is a first batch of six teams


And three more teams and the special herseys

Great work! Where did you get the metal cyclists?

They are from a french manufacturer Fonderie Roger.


There are various scales. The ones I painted are the smaller ones for gaming scale : 1/43.

But they have a larger range that is more 1/35 for Collectors.

Here is a comparison with the Flamme Rouge game plastic riders

Yesterday we played the custom stage Paris-Roubaix with cobblestone tiles (that will be included in the first add-on.


We were 6 players.
