Note (*): these LBS Eligor models are part of the collection of Jean-Jacques' fellow collector who, like him, retired from the French postal company.

Berliet GPE 4 tank transporter, assigned in small numbers to the French Army before the Second World War (Hachette):









Note: in order to provide me with better pictures, military modelers have noted that Jean-Jacques used a 1/50 Solido Somua S35 tank as a load for the 1/43 tank transporter.

Guy: How about explaining how that tank transporter works. I know the scales are different but it looks like they go together well. Explain the truck itself. Thanks,Craig

Craig,

The Berliet GPE 4 was designed to handle light tanks, like Renaults of 10.6 and 16 tonnes or the Somua of 19.5 tonnes, all with the French Army at that time.
The tank could, either climb under its own power on the transporter bed via rear ramps (carried with the truck) or be lifted by the lifting frame (when the tank was not operational, for example).

Some pictures of the second activity, which seemed to be staff- and time-consuming:









I hope it helps.
Guy

Thanks Guy: I really like that model. I used to collect Dinky Toys military models. I also collected Britains military trucks, tanks...etc. How far back o these Hatchett models go? Craig

Guy: How long has Hatchette been around? Were they sold in the US? I don't remember hearing of the brand when growing up. Craig

Craig,

Hachette - like Altaya and Atlas - are selling their products exclusively in press stands or by mail order. Some of their 1/43 models are produced by Ixo, but they sold as well Solido and Dinky re-editions in the past, all made in China and available at reduced prices by collection themes at a rate of one a week.
I know that their various collections sold pretty well in Europe (they are cheap considering the quality) but I'm afraid that they are not present in US.

A link to a French site summarizing all press stands products made available throughout time (some collections are now over or sold-off): http://mesnumeros1.eklablog.com/accueil-p8970

I hope it helps.

Berliet TR 350 tractor (Hachette):









In a recent email, Jean-Jacques indicated to me that - considering the end of the Hachette collection dedicated to vintage Berliet models - he would probably stop collecting models in a 1/43 scale.
Therefore, let's consider that this post is the last regular one of that topic.

Regards.
Guy
