Commemorative 1938 Emile Tonneline Traction Avant Cabriolet scale model

Alain Dufour is a collector of 1:43 Citroën miniatures. He has created La Grand Aventure des Petites Citroën — an online forum dedicated to enthusiasts. We first mentioned his passion back in January 2022.

Alain also offers exclusive creations of miniatures directly made by craftsmen he has met during his travels in the extended world of 1:43 scale car model enthusiasts.

His latest product, in commemoration of the 90th anniversary of the Traction Avant, is a 1:43 scale model of the 1938 11BL Traction Avant Cabriolet re-bodied by Emile Tonneline.

These photos are of the first 3D prototype Alain has received from the manufacturer:

Obviously, there is considerable work to be done, but a finished product should be shipping by the summer.

Alain will be happy to send an order form in English to anyone interested. Contact him at:
