Another truly inspiring build Geoff...... I'm always in awe of your clean building techniques.

Can't wait to see what you come up with next!

Thanks everyone for your kind words, I really enjoyed this build, for me this build was a trip down memory lane, I built this kit first time round when it was first released here in England, (1978) I had just started work and went into town with my first wage packet to the big model shop we used to have, now the memory is a little fuzzy, as I really can't remember if I bought the '32 Chrysler or the Stutz first, and while building this one, I had flash backs to when I built this at the age of 15, in my little shed in the garden hand painting the body in bright yellow enamel, and if I say so myself I did a pretty good job of it, thanks to the old guy in the body shop at work who taught me how to thin and brush paint enamel without getting brush marks in the paint .... if I ever get my hands on another one of these kits I will be build it in the bright yellow I originally did all those years ago ....

I love these old cars, wish there were more for us to build out there.

You've done a great job on this one.

A very nice clean crisp build. If you had labeled it a new die-cast straight from the box I would have believed you! (That IS meant as a compliment.)

With the quality of a lot of diecast models out there today, I take it as a great compliment, Thank you ....

Nice model and a super car... I guess you were pretty special if you drove one of those back in the day!

I love it, been looking at getting one for some time, but those Fleabay prices are just horrid! That brass has an antique, unpolished look to it, like it really is old. Excellent build!

 

Sam, set up an eBay Search Agent for this kit and they'll email you daily when they have something to report.  I love the Heller Citroens and see them there for $80 on up,  but the ones I've bought have been in the $20-25 range due to the search agent. It shows me everyone as it comes to market, then I bid low and hope for the best.
