1950 Talbot Lago Record Converitble 60th Anniversary Limited Edition (1/24) (fs) 1931 Bugatti T.50 (1/24) (fs)
The Talbot Lago-Record Type T26 was a large, six-cylinder executive car launched by the French Talbot company in 1946. In the context of the company's protracted financial collapse, the last T26s were probably those produced during 1953.

Steel-bodied four- and two-door sedans and coupes were offered. Numerous coach builders also offered bespoke bodies for the car, although in the economically constrained conditions of the time, relatively few were built.

There was also a shortened sports version known as the Talbot Lago-Grand Sport Type T26.
The Type 50 was the first road-going Bugatti to be powered by the DOHC engine, with the honor of the very first ever going to the 1930 Type 51 Grand Prix racer. The engine was based on the Type 46 unit, but slightly decreased in size with a different bore and stroke. The design of the cylinder-head was directly inspired by the Miller engines Ettore Bugatti had acquired to study at the end of the 1920s. With 225 hp available, the Type 50 engine was the most powerful production engine Ettore ever designed. Although the Type 50 was intended solely for road use, Jean Bugatti convinced his father to prepare three examples for the 1931 24 Hours of Le Mans race. For the first time Bugatti had a car with a large enough engine to take on the Bentleys or 'British lorries' as Ettore referred to them. Painted in all-black to show Bugatti's discontent with the French government's refusal to sponsor the racing effort, the Type 50 racers were all withdrawn after a tire-failure on one of the team cars. One of those 24 Hour racers returned to Le Mans three more times, and even led the race for a while in the 1935 running. The road-going Type 50s were delivered as a running chassis ready to be bodied by the coach builder of the customer's choice. Taking in account the high price of the chassis, it came as no surprise that only the finest of coach builders were commissioned to body the Type 50s. Most chassis' received coupe bodies. One of the most famous versions was the Jean Bugatti designed Profilee body style, which became inspiration for the later Ventoux body type found on the Type 57 chassis. Production of the Type 50 lasted just three years in which 65 examples were constructed, including the three Le Mans racers. It was outsold by the Types 46 and 57 many times, which might explain why the Type 50 is one of the lesser known and written about Bugatti models. The chassis' pedigree alone should give it a more prominent position in the marque's history. Combining that with the lavish and beautiful bodies fitted, the Type 50 could be considered the finest car ever produced by Bugatti. Founded in Paris, France in 1957, Heller kits are widely regarded as some of the best fitting and most authentic kits every produced. Being a French company, Heller is well-known for their European car and truck models. Unfortunately, Heller went into bankruptcy in 2005 and Heller kits are no longer being manufactured. As a result, vintage complete Heller kits are in high demand from builders and collectors alike.

"The Garden Snail"

Born from the pre-war gentleman's agreement between Harry Ferguson and Henry Ford that would lead to America's iconic Ford 8N tractor, the equally iconic and very similar Ferguson TE20 would help rebuild war-torn Europe in the 40's and 50's and many were exported to the US, Canada, and all over the British Commonwealth. In France it was affectionately known as "Petit Gris" (Garden Snail). To be more precise, "
The French description 'Petit Gris' purely means 'Little Grey', not 'garden snail', as in Britain they were known as the 'Little Grey Fergie'. It also, strictly speaking, isn't a 'Massey Ferguson', Massey didn't join forces with Ferguson until early 1950's" We thank our friend in the UK, Mat Irvine, for the clarifications.

The growing trend towards winter cereals has made autumn a peak period. Seedings should be prepared more quickly. Operating conditions are difficult. Hence the need for more and more powerful tractors, more and more reliable, simplified everyday use, and equipped with essential comfort for long working days. It is to meet this need that Massey Ferguson designed and developed in the late seventies, in France, in the varied and often difficult farming conditions, the tractors of the 2000 series.
The improvements in hydraulics and the choice of the four-wheel-drive system have seen the development of advanced and increasingly robust machines, power wheels, PTO, lifting, allowing to use all modern instruments and machines.
The MF 2680 Turbo with 125 hp DIN 4WD is a versatile tool whose overall design reduces and simplifies parts maintenance or replacement. Finally, the cabin integrated steering wheel adjustable in height and inclination is equipped with heating and air conditioning. All controls are arranged to be easy to use.

Management at CitroŽn believed that the standard of living of the French and of Europeans was on the rise. The 2 C.V. had just been successfully launched on the market and a successor had to be found for the 15 and 11 C.V. The VGD project (Large Series Car), the first designs of which dated back to 1945, began to take shape. Andrť LEFEBVRE who is appointed manager of the project decides the car should be innovative throughout. The body was the art of Flaminio Bertoni and the suspension that of Paul MagŤs. As for the engine, Paul Bercot updated the design of the old 1911 cc D engine. At the end of 1954, the project is completed. In October 1955, the car made its debut at the 42nd Paris Motor Show. Most surprising about the car were its lines. The design was totally new. France was divided into two groups: those who liked it and those who didn't. But the bodywork was not the only novel feature. Hydropneumatic suspension brought unrivaled confort with four wheel independent suspension. Plastic became an important element in the body work, the roof panel and rear window as well as the light alloys for the bonnet making use of plastic. There were also other new features: a single spoke steering wheel, tapered turn signals and doors without window frames.
