This model arrived in France during the Allies landing in 1944 , and was found as a basket case near Nantes in '94. Missing parts were found in british autojumbles, & from Garreau, the former Norton importer in France. It took two years to restaure it, & finding the military equipment was a hard task. Finally parts were located in Avranche, by english friends & again in autojumbles, this time in Normandy. The Army half-matt Olive Drab comes from Birmingham.
