I took a little break from white metal models and found Heller's Citroen 2vc (pic).

Just simple plastic, made in France, inexpensive even when new (and I bought it on the 'bay) and easy to clip from the sprue. Very little filing!



Colors out of the "Remember this one?" box of spray cans. Realistic seats, the wheels don't roll, and the dark primer looks pretty realistic as roof canvas.


The little bitty lights on the front fenders are white to the front and red to the rear. Thanks, guys!


I had fun with backgrounds, using a calendar shot of French countryside and a building a block from my house that suggests French construction to me.

I have a hunch I just may go this route again! But there's also an old Gunze Sangyo Mercedes on the stack, and . . .

Enjoy!
