Produced since 1961, the popular 4L, debuted at the 1961 Paris Show and ran in production for more than 31 years in France only, and later in neighbouring countries with the only aim to compete with the also famous Citroen 2CV without which, the 4L perhaps, would have never existed! In the 1990 decade, Renault was obliged to resign the production of the 4L, for their inability to adapt to the new European rules against contamination. With more than 8 million units, the 4L is still the best-seller French car. This article aims at sharing with the reader the modifications and improvements I made during the construction of the Ebbro kit.

On the occasion of one of my visits to a LHS, it was offered to me to buy a cheap 1/16 Hobby Boss Tiger I which had the upper hull missing. The Hobby Boss kit was not born to be a static model; some years ago it has been offered by WSN as a cheap RC toy. Good in some aspects while deficient and unacceptable in others. It tries to represent a Tiger I Mid production. With the kit at home, I thought it was a good opportunity of building a Tiger I early since I had a RC toy from Heng Long, a direct but inaccurate copy of the Tamiya Tiger, and that represents the Tiger early version.
