Craig,

As you probably know, the French Riviera lies along the Mediterranean coast, which could explain the drought of some of Azur Modelisme dioramas.
But don't be afraid: we have had our content of rainwater this year so far!

Leon,

Theo van der Zon has stopped producing models some years ago and the only FAUN model similar to a Zon one in the ASAM range is the Goliath 8x8. ASAM is producing quite a few FAUNs (see abstract of ASAM models list below) but, except for the Goliath, none of the previous Zon Models:

[...]
C268 FAUN ELEFANT HEAVY TOW TRUCK “ALE”
SM 99 FAUN ELEFANT SLT50 8X8 TRACTOR “KFOR”
SM100 FAUN ELEFANT SLT50 8X8 TRACTOR “SFOR”
SM 98 FAUN ELEFANT SLT50 8X8 TRACTOR “UNITED NATIONS”
C232E FAUN GOLIATH 8x8 HEAVY TOW TRUCK “ALSTOM ALE”
C232A FAUN GOLIATH 8x8 HEAVY TOW TRUCK “ALSTOM”
C232D FAUN GOLIATH 8x8 HEAVY TOW TRUCK “ALTHOM”
C232C FAUN GOLIATH 8x8 HEAVY TOW TRUCK “GEC”
C232B FAUN GOLIATH 8x8 HEAVY TOW TRUCK “NEW ALE”
C181B FAUN KOLOSS MK2 6X6 HEAVY TOW TRUCK “NEW ALE”
C181A FAUN KOLOSS MK2 6X6 HEAVY TOW TRUCK “OLD ALE”
C11 FAUN PRIME MOVER 6X6 TRACTOR

[...]

2 FAUN ASAM models, a Koloss and an Elefant, in ALE livery:





I hope it helps.
