Many thanks Mon Ami, for a look at that site. I had no idea that such Lucotte figures were stilll being produced.

As beautiful as they are, however, I don't think that I will be ordering any - as they are a bit beyond what I like to pay - and I much prefer to paint my own anyway.

The Catalogue, however, is of great interest to me - as it gives some wonderful pictures (especially the Military bands) - from which some casting conversions might be attempted. I will certainly be taking a closer look at some of these in the future. Thanks again for the link -

A bientot, Johnnybach

I would like to provide some information regarding Edouard Pemzec and the Lucotte label.

Lucotte was in production prior to M.Pemzec acquiring CBG Mignot and purchasing the rights to the Lucotte label.

In 1982 Lynda Franceschi who owned the rights to the Lucotte label, created the Lucotte Collector's Club. Members provided
input as to what Lucotte sets were to be produced. The Club produced a number of sets that were sold to members only. An
interesting bonus to belonging to the Club was that members could order additional figures with their original set. The Club
continued for several years producing four sets.

In 1995 the Club Lucotte was formed under the guidance of Madame Franceschi. Many new and exciting sets were produced and appeared
on a regular basis. Several years latter M.Pemzec purchased the rights from Madame Franceschi and is now the sole owner of the Lucotte label
while his son Loic oversees production of CBG Mignot.
