Sorry all, i was away in vacations!

 

so i'll try to answer: Heller made two kits of Traction in 1/8 scale, something quite crazy, and a DS 19 "cabriolet" in 1/16 scale (very hard to built). others was in 1/24.

this kit will need around one year to be complet (4 sets per month) and will cost 1100 € (without bonus, 3 diecast miniatures)

 

it's the Altaya edition kit, but it's Spanish Agostini manufacturer.

 

about the repaint color, see this picture:

light reflects make it lighter

 

I received interior parts ( a seat and dashboard)

 

pictures soon!

Heller made only one kit of Traction Avant in 1/8 scale. It can be found in four different boxes, but the parts are all the same ones. DS 19 1/16 is not a Cabriolet, it has four doors and so it's a sedan.

Nifty, but I keep thinking they have to release a Cadillac at some point.

Try to google first a bit, Heller made 2 1/16 DS kits, one of them IS a convertible/cabriolet.

i'm sorry, i should say: "Heller made one kit 1/8: Traction; and two kits of DS 19 in 1/16 scale: berline and cabriolet. (berline kit is still produced)

 

so all you are right!

 

last sets i received this month, about radiator case, transmission parts, a front seat and dashborad:

front seat have a smooth plastic enveloppe, looking good, but color is more skay aspect than leather. I'll paint with oil paints when i receive all seats

dashboard is disappointing. clock is just print, plastic aspect is not good

Is it possible to buy this kit all at once? Or is it only available a little at a time? I think waiting for the next shipment of parts would drive me crazy!  :D

I dont know. I believe not because they produce numbers only relative at people registered and sailers in tabacco and daily papers shops.

but you can try to ask for!

 

I'm working on another similar kit (french sealiner France) and i waited 6 months to have enough parts to make building fun!

i'd also bought dry oil paint liquid, so next paint will be quicker!

Xpensive but nice subject model (personally a late topline DS: DS23 "Pallas", would have been a bit better). From the pix seen sure looks like a very nice replica when completed.

...Remember the "Deuche" in same scale a few years back.

Odd that those "Weekly-Monthly" kits are not boxed & sold later as complet kits, pretty sure Altaya would find a many enthusiasts in North America & Japan, for a few of their selected 1/8th models.

Heller introduced the 1/8 "Traction" kit back in 1977 & DS19 1/16th Sedan & later "Chapron" Conv, back in the 80's (tough kits to assemble!....hope your Altaya DS21 a bit more relaxing!!!)

Vive la France!
