1:43 Peugeot 203 by Heller and me (pics)
Just having more fun!

First, a little overview: The Peugeot 203 is a small family car which was produced by the French car manufacturer Peugeot between 1948 and 1960. The 203 was Peugeot's first new model launched after World War II. During its twelve-year production run nearly 700,000 203s of all variants rolled off the assembly line in Sochaux, France. Between the demise of the 202 in 1949 and the launch of the 403 in 1955, the 203 was the only model produced by Peugeot. (from Wikipedia)



I like the good box art by Francis Bergese.

Styling reminds me of the 1942-1948 Fords, especially in the roof lines. The comparative sizes are also interesting.


The French company of Heller still manufactures interesting kits in scale 1:43. Their modern production seems to have emphasis on racing cars.
