 I don't know much about these, Company appears to be defunct now.
Gaston Thiry operated in Rue Potaarde, Brussels, Belgium

It is a stunning model, the front grill and bumper are a work of art, the earlier (?) versions have an SMTS stamp on the sub-frame plate covering the Front axle, this is replaced with a blank piece of metal in later(?) versions.

Available as both kits and assembled, some of my assembled models are mounted on a plexiglass plinth and "signed" in silver paint on the base, I assume this was the finisher and year of release? If you have other signatures please let me know?
