The mirrors are painted ! (too lazy to put pics)

Master by Eligor and Maxity by Eligor for Renault trucks

If you want to come will be pleased (I watch you work my glass of beer in hand).

It is true that this little truck is very well finished . (Trucks given to Renault's trucks customers)

Can't be the only 1 thinking that they would look awesome in Diorama together, with perhaps a battered old renault car.

The railroad wheels increase the interest factor on that Ford by no small amount.

OK, this one is definitely on the lighter side of a collection. This parade float is a gift for my girlfriend. I like the little details such as the windshield wiper on the glass windscreen, the rear view mirrors, and the plant that covers the radiator grille. (Imagine a parade in which one would need a windshield wiper :cry: :? ) Inside, there's a LHD steering wheel. 1:64.

Parade Float.

If only the model had included a festival queen figurine waving from her rostrum on the lion's back. :lol:
