From France.

Heller has also released a line of 1/72 scale kits which are actually re-boxings of 1/76th Airfix kits. I believe that the following kits are the only true 1/72nd kits that Heller has released.

For some illogical reason Heller has marketed these kits with the same item number.      
79997 Willys Jeep & Trailer

New tool. Same as Airfix.
The jeep is scale wise quite acceptable: Lengthwise he's 1mm too long, wheelbase is spot on, while the width is 0.5 mm under scale. (Marc Mercier)

79995 LCVP Landing Craft Same as Airfix kit no. 01321.     Al Magnus
79874 AMX-13/105 New tool

AMX-30 Mediocre kit. The overall shape and dimensions are accurate, but detail is soft and archaic. No tracks are included. Well, there are two pieces of plastic that are supposed to be tracks, but they're not useable. Preview Stephen Brezinski  
0237 Scheuschlepper Rather inaccurate. Kit comes with free bonus Me163B      
Ludovic Bertrand passed me this information: Heller released another series of 1/72nd scale kits under the label of Bobkit in the mid-80's. From what I understand, these kits were accurate in scale, but undetailed. They were aimed primarily at the younger market.
