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

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?

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

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

This is the original DS interior, very luxurious
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.
Comming along quite nicely
The foor is being carpetted. It is now blue/grey so I need to spray it in dark grey later on.
The body is painted black and the interior in green/white
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.

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.)

Excellent. Beautiful photo with the trees in the background.

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