Berliet L64 4x4 in "Protection Civile"(*) livery (Hachette):









Note (*): the "Protection Civile"(which could be translated by "Civilian Protection") supplements fire brigades in helping the French population against major accidents and natural disasters. It could be considered as the French equivalent of the German THW ("Bundesanstalt Technisches Hilfswerk").

Wildpig1234,

I would avoid mixing models of both scales, as 1/43 units look very big, when compared to 1/50 models. The only exception I see are small 1/43 cars displayed with 1/50 large trucks.

I hope it helps.
