    I am looking for an HO scale vehicle, specifically a Renault Kango. My wife and I were in France last fall, and rented a Kango. I would like to add one to my layout. As this vehicle is not available in the US, I am hoping that someone in Europe may know where I can get one.

    Thanks for your help.

    I would check Walthers catalog. Most of the scale model cars built for ho are manufactured by European manufacturers. Most of their models are European prototype, so I would expect one of them would make the Kango.

    I think Herpa is one of the lines Walthers carries.

    You guys are GREAT. I am impressed, I tride searching for one to no avail, and you guys came through with a couple of places to try. I will be contacting them tomorrow to see if I can get one ordered.

    Thanks - you are the best.
