Here's a few pics of a Heller 1/8 Citroen I butchered and turned into a wreck. Lots of expensive fun....

Thank you miwi and dv8v8.
I used an original Citroen parts manual for the exploded views and pics I took of disassembled parts to get it as close as I possibly could.
It was built on commission for a Citroen collector so I had access to the real thing as well as all the printed info I needed.

Thanks for the kind words Steve, ratsmann, and mgy125.
It was fun (?) to do and I'm working on and off on another one- this time a Minicraft 1/16 Model A delivery. I'll post some pics of that one on the workbench forum soon....

That big old 1:8 scale Heller Citroen is a rare kit now. I think I saw this same vignette (or a similar one) at Model Expo some years ago? Amazing detail and realism - a beautiful example of the plastic modeller's art. Well done!

Thanks allan, Ian, and Tezza.
Tezza, you're correct mate. It took the gold in its class down at Melbourne. It also got a 4 page article in Modelart a few years ago.

Chris you've just jogged my poor old memory further. I remember the article in ModelArt Magazine because I prepared the photos for prepress. Mate am I losing it or what? Thanks for the wake-up call. Very Happy

If you're losing it mate, you're not the only one! I'm not exactly a master of memory myself.... Laughing
You did an excellent job with the photos Tezza!! Thanks mate. Thanks to Frank too for the superb writeup (he half credits me but all I did was supply him with the tech info).
