Rusty low 2cv

Recommended Posts

well, it's been over a year, since I last built a kit.

 I had to move home and then get one of the rooms fixed up as a hobby room, so it's been a while.

anyway, here's the Tamiya Citroën 2CV.

Weathering was done using the salt technique and some pastels.

suspension was lowered very easily, thanks to the way the kit is engineered.

 I added wires and gubbins under the hood, a battery clamp and a relay box.

 I also added valve stems to the wheels, but you can hardly see them!

Interior junk was also added, along with some tape repairs to the roof and drivers seat.

here are the pics. I hope you like it

I like it! Great weathering job! Good to hear lowering is an easy job for those waiting for me to do.

Wow! Spectacular! Love the weathering/rust. Where did the "interior junk" come from?

Looks great! Nice weathering. I just picked this one up from a friend of mine last week and was wondering about lowering it. I'll have to keep your excellent build in mind when it comes time to build mine.http://20160928_182636.jpg

Is this an earlier mold of the Tamiya kit or completly different?

Later-

It has nothing in common with the Tamiya version. IIRC it's proportions are rather distorted - it doesn't have a stock look (it is too wide and too low, could probably built as a custom: already chopped/channeled/sectioned) it has been planned as a motorized toy car, only about 40 parts, curbside etc. etc.

Here you can see a presentation of the kit contents:
