'Heco Modèles' was created in 1979 by Hervé Colombet. The company was installed in a room in the centre town of Saint Etienne. 21 years old, Hervé was impassionned by the models and he had only one idea, to manufacture its own models.

Herve Colombet

The success of its first realization, the 'Bugatti 73A', sold with 300 assembled specimens, encouraged him to continue in this way. During the first years when he manufactured mainly of the 'Bugatti' and 'Rolls Royce', he learned how to control all the various techniques necessary to the realization of reduced models.

I love my Heco models, but I would like to know how to fix all of the wrinkled window frames and chrome strips which are nothing more than decals.
►reply: Sorry, I searched as well but I can't find any Heco decals...
