1949 Hotchkiss 686 TdF 1:43 £8.99
The arrival of spring brings to mind open-top driving. And there can be few more idyllic trips than following a cycling race around France in a classic convertible. Norev’s Hotchkiss 686 dressed in 36th Tour de France trim looks lovely, with the casting quality you would expect from this leading modelmaker, albeit at a lower price due to simpler detailing on the chassis and interior. Despite the budget cost, the pennants, plaques and grille look fantastic, while the wheels have a two-tone silver and gold finish. The Hotchkiss 686 is a well-proportioned model with loads of character.
