I've never seen a 1/8 Citroen.

There is a kit of the early car-the 1934 and later Traction Avant. Think Heller makes it.

Heller makes a 1/8 Citroen Traction Avant 15 SIX.

http://www.cw-modell...ction-Avant-1-8

It has a straight 6 engine and you can built a 1949, 1951 or 1952 version of it. It has 1054 parts and I have one WIP.

 

That DS 21 is a monthly build. You collect parts every month and then you build it. It's a metal model.

Aha. Like the 1/8 James Bond Aston Martin from Goldfinger.

Yes Sir!

 

That Aston is an amazing kit. More parts than a Pocher, and my math says it's about $1,275, if it's 85 monthly mailings at around 12 euros each.

Yeah, that one I know. I've never seen a modern 1/8 Citroen. Sorry, I wasn't clear.

I'm not sure I like the "buy a few parts a month" thing. Although it does seem to make the model "affordable" and takes attention away from the real price!  :lol:

That's from all the acid trips your avatar has taken. How about Prince Harry to clean up your act?

Man.

 

At least the DB has a link to which you can appeal to have it eventually sent out of the UK, but I'd love that DS too...

The crazy part is, if there's one mailing of parts per month for 85 months, it will take 7 years to get all the parts. This is obviously not for Baby Boomers over 60.
