Another Hachette Editions model, the Berliet GBC 8KT, fitted by Sides with a normalized FPM body ("Fourgon-Pompe Mixte", which could be literally translated into "Combination Pump Van", part of the ARFF vehicle category - American acronym for "Airport Rescue and Fire-Fighting"):





The French Army fire truck followed by the CMD wrecker built on the same chassis (acronym for "Camion Moyen de Depannage", which could be translated into "Middle-weight Recovery Truck"):

Brian,

I didn't know about AVD Models at all, so I did a bit of search and came with this link: https://www.scalemates.com/fr/search.php?fkSECTION%5B%5D=Kits&q=AVD

Their production is impressive, with vehicles from the other side of the ex-"Iron Curtain", very seldom seen in Western Europe, though. But that's an interesting range, I must admit.
But I'm not able to provide you with any feed-back on these models, sorry!

Regards.
Guy

Hi Guy,
I have been collecting the.scalematesmodels for quite a few years now really deitaled and made with resien and Diecast mixed
Nice strong models they come in closed plastic show case they can be removed to show or set up to show with other models
They have a huge collection in the online shop and as said 1/43 scale not cheap you get what you pay for though.
There is some very nice military model also worth a look.
Leon.

Curiously enough, the model box indicates "1:48", which is obviously a wrong information. The combination displayed with 3 Preiser figures modeled in a true 1/50 scale:
