No - not Messieurs Aznavour and Trenet but rather this pair of old 1/43 scale Solido diecasts which I picked up on eBay to serve as staff cars for my Little Cold Wars French forces.
One of the many joys of Solido models is that they are usually quite easy to dismantle for repainting and maintenance work. So it was with these models - a Citroen CX and a Peugeot 504 wagon. I was keen to preserve the considerable chrome plated areas while the stripped body parts were sprayed a rather fetching dark green.
After reassembling them I painted on the number plates - such as they are - and then sat back to admire them. As it happens I have run three 1/1 scale Peugeots - two 104SL and a 309GL - but the 504 was never a common sight on British roads. I never quite managed to buy a CX but came close on two occasions before my courage failed me and I bought Volvos instead. To date my only Citroen was a BX which to be honest wasn't great. It was replaced with - you guessed it - a Volvo.
