In 1993 I had in my hands the 1/12 Ligier kit by Heller; I was about to buy it but the decal sheets were too old and in bad condition. Since that moment, I've always had in my mind the idea of building a model of the JS11 (which impressed me when I saw it in 1979), and detail it as much as possible, because these Heller kits are really poor in quality and inaccurate. So, a few months ago, while I was talking with an importer, I saw the box in his office and the idea came back back to my mind. Needless to say that a few hours later I was examining the kit in my house.
The kit is the most simple and inaccurate that I've tried to build in the last 20 years; I'm not trying to criticize Heller with this, what I'm saying is that this is a model to be built in a weekend, and not a model to superdetail; although considering the time when it was released, we can say (without comparing it with Tamiya) that it was interesting.
