Hi. I managed to pick up a bargain on ebay the other day to start my ww2 French collection off. The problem I have is I can't identify the manufacturer of the assembled models. They are all metal and there were some QRF models in packets with the purchase so I thought they must be QRF.
the problem is they don't match the pics on the QRF website.
I've had a look at all the manufacturers I can think of and cant find an exact match. Any ideas?

They are Peter pig 1st Generation French tanks from pre 1994. The first 1/100th French WW2 armour ever released in the world. They seem to have weathered their battles well. There are newer versions done now so that it will be tricky to match up.

Thanks Martin. That's why I couldn't find then. Just shows you must have made them well!

Maybe I should put them up for sale again as 'vintage' :) A quick repaint and they can keep on fighting!

I am the proud owner of the one of those elderly Char Bs! Mine is done as a Flammpanzer B2 (F) for Pz Ko 224 at Arnhem.

Excellent news. Hope they can still stop the Bosch? Maybe a +1 for being very veteran?

I also have six of these lorries which I'm guessing are also ancient pig due to same paintscheme.
