Hell on wheels

by brae  

I've been rather busy the past couple of weekends socially and have another busy one ahead, but I am mulling ideas and of course buying minis behind the scenes.  :D  I even got a NEW CAR (now I have The Price is Right theme song in my head).

Errmmm, some assembly required.  The Citroën DS19 is one of my favorite vintage autos, and I know I'm not alone.

It's 1/16 scale like the Model T Van, but it's longer still.  Who knew?  :]

The reviews on this kit range from "if you're an experienced builder, you can get a decent result with a lot of work" all the way to "I threw it in the trash and said 'see you in hell!'"  So, we shall see.  But, the car keys from Whimsy Cottage Minis are fabulous anyway even if they end up belonging to a different car.

I want to grab those keys, hop in and tootle about the south of France. I know this will be an amazing piece!

I think you love challenges and are not looking for easy ways. So I wish you get a lot of fun!

The keys are just darling! And if it doesn’t have to be done by a deadline,I’ll bet you’ll have no trouble. Can’t wait to see it!

There’s something about those mid-century cars, isn’t there! I think my own favorite is the Studebaker Avanti. Good luck with the kit!
