IIRC, Heller also did a DS or ID in 1:43, and Revell offered at least two 1:24 kits, even though I am not certain if it's a re-boxing or a genuine mold. Imai also did an 1:24 2CV.

Perhaps you'd know the  answer to this - does anyone make a model of a Citroen 2CV, or the Citroen DS? I have a friend who builds only car models, and I like to give him cars I think he's never seen before.  :)

IIRC Tamiya did the 2CV in 1/24, and Heller did a DS in 1/16th.
And apparently Ebbro do a DS in 1/24.

Thanks, Rick!  :)
I try to learn from the mistakes of others who take my advice.

The Car SIG at Telford had a complete display of customised 2CVs in 1/24. Somewhere I have a pic or two of the best ones.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Call me nitpicky, but I can see some problems with this layout...

Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

I can heartily recommend it, although the price is a tad steep.  It's unlikely to get a reprint* as I've a feeling that John Baxter may have passed away.


*Then again, if the CDs with all the production work are still viable AND more importantly, I can find them in me Mam's loft, then a reprint of the internals is fine - I had nothing to do with the cover.

Weirdly I had my copy right next to me when I clicked into this thread, admiring the Rotodyne Mk2 on the inside of the cover which appears to have a stretched body

I'm not sure quite where my copy is, although it's about here somewhere...

I can add my recommendations to that as well  :thumbsup:
