Hi.

After lurking for some time, I decided to post some projects I've been working on, at the 1/8 BIG scale as my first contribution for this Forum.

So, this is about THREE huge and magnificent Heller kits - with 1054 parts each one - of the classic CITROËN 15 SIX "Traction Avant", made on the "seventies".
My goal is to make the "sedan" versions of 1948 and 1952 and the "roadster" version of 1939, with a major transformation of the original kit.

Although very fragile, almost all the parts of the kit work like on the real car. Maybe the best car kit ever made!

I will post here the only model I've already finished (started on August 2016), and, on the WIP, the second one - the "roadster".

Now, lets watch some pictures - some of them show two engines with their location 'cos I started assembling and weathering two cars:








I will posting the pictures on sequence

Those were the pictures I have, concerning this model.
Maybe tomorrow I'll post the WIP of the roadster, so far.

Welcome to the forums and what a first post!
Fantastic pictures of a great build. I would like to point out one thing.
Could you make separate threads for projects under construction and for the completed build, it's the way the forum works.

I look forward to seeing the other builds.

Hi, guys, thanks a lot.
I'm glad you liked the "monster".

Sure, Ian. That's the way "all the forums" work.
I just posted ALL the pictures of this build, because it wasn't built "on the forum".
For the other WIP's, I will surely post them on the right place, beginning with the roadster.

All the best, my friends!
