A friend of mine wants a model of a Citroen ID19 from 1958. Of course Solido has a model like that but the detailing is, well, not great. That is why I am using two models from Norev. This way, for instance, the bonnet will open.

The base models:

The idea is to put the front end of the cabrio onto the berline.

I can't see any pictures. I remember checking out Norev diecasts when I was living in France. Man, they are nice.

My most fervent hope and desire is to see a 1/24 scale of the DS, preferably coming from Tamiya. Please, oh, please, styrene gods won't you deliver unto us a DS?

Pics should be visable now.

Fabbri / Quattroruote or Metro (1:24) makes a DS for Italian kiosks... No idea how to get your hands on one.

Okey, I suppose I've got the basic shape. The late DSs (as the base model) have lots of chrome trim. An early ID doesn't have those so I grinded them off. Bonnet opens and closes nicely. Now I need to work on the door gabs.

The bonnet didn't aline properly to the doors. It was a bit short and just a bit too narrow. To different models of course. I've extended the doors a bit with putty. Also twisted the corners of the bonnet a bit so it is wider.

Also the gab between the front wings and the doors was uneven. So I grinded a bit of the doors at the top and extended the front wings at the bottem.

A bit of black paint to see where some more sanding is required

Looking good, the DS has got to be a favorite car of mine, I'd love to see a 1:24th scale plastic kit of one ....

Time to get started on the interior

This is the original DS interior, very luxurious

Posted Image

An early ID has a much more basic interior. The seats are covered in basic fabric. So I first need to make the surface smooth.

Posted Image

Comming along quite nicely

Posted Image

The foor is being carpetted. It is now blue/grey so I need to spray it in dark grey later on.

Posted Image

The body is painted black and the interior in green/white

Posted Image

I'm now working on the chassis. The axles from the cabrio with the old style wheels will be fitted on the Berline chassis. Not the easiest job because they are rather different.

Well, it is kind of done. Number plates need to be changes. And a bit of cleaning. Back really shows all finger marks.

Love the unique styling of these cars and your build looks great! Wish there was a 1:25 or 1:24 plastic kit available.

Awesome Job!

I've always liked these cars, they have that Ugly Cool look.

You mean the 2CV? Nickname in Holland is "lelijke eend" or ugly duck.

Fantastic work as always!

And I agree with Geoff - it would be great to have this in 1.24th plastic. (I do have a pretty nice 1.24th diecast.)

Heller has a 1/16 DS 19 sedan, but I'm told it's a total pain to build.

Anyone living in Austin, Texas?

 

The Citroen ID arrived today but it is damaged. The body is detached from the under carriage.

I'm affraid the model will be ruined if it is send by post while it is in bits and pieces.
