Citroen DS 21, Ebbro

Recommended Posts

Color is Zeropaints “Ivoire Borely

The kit is great, and I like the “lines” of this car.
Sorry to say, but I have never sit in this car.

I have some problems with metal stickers.
You use it like water slides, but they stick directly to the surface.
I try to solve this by apply a small amount of “washing- up liquid” on the surface and then apply the sticker.
Now I could move it. When it was on the right place, II burnished it down with some added water.

The instruction says to paint the lenses yellow, but I put a small amount of clear yellow in the “reflectors”, much better.

Beautiful! I love these old Citroens! I had the chance to drive one of these a few years ago... These cars ride so smooth, its hard to believe you're actually driving a car on asphalt, it feels more like hovering!

Your build of this Citroen DS 21 is excellent, Bo...... and I know the Ebbro kits are not cheap, but they are well worth the money..... brilliant paint finish also!

Very nice work! I rode in one as a Taxi when I was in Paris back around 1971. As a kid I was impressed with the single spoke on the steering wheel!

I never heard of this brand of model before.  I've seen very few of these cars, cool subject.  You did really well on it, love the lights.  Did you add the green can up front?

Very nicely build model of a gorgeous and unique car!  Well done!  I have that kit (to be built some day).

How did the kit go together? Any other fit problems (besides the metal stickers)?

Beautiful job. Some of the photos look like a 1:1 car! The paint choice is subtle and flawless. I'm inspired to pick up one of these Ebbro kits myself now.

I never knew this kit excisted. Very fine build, so sharp and clean. Did you make any own parts, or is everything included in the kit? These old Citroens are jewels among cars.

Beautiful!  If you ever see the movie A Hundred Foot Journey Helen Mirren has one that is shown in multiple shots.   Great build
