The three cars were “RETRO” models of fifties French cars: Citroën DS, Citroën 2CV and Renault Dauphine. Three iconic French cars, especially the Citroëns. The scales are between 1:54 for the Renault and the 2CV and 1:58 for the DS.
The models are “Designed in France” but made in China, like many other “European” brands.
I notice my 2CV has lost one of its lights since I took this photo in Paris.
The Norev Citroën DS is a slightly larger scale (1:58) than the recent Matchbox Citroën DS (1:65).
Norev do other scales including 1:43 and a nice Citroen SM in 1:18.
They also have a website Norev Website.
Since I initially wrote this article, I found a Renault 18TS in my local market, (this model was made in France) and a Mercedes C111 in a larger 1:43 scale, also made in France.
