CitroŽn 15 CV, Le FantŰme de Guynemer

Post by chromecop on Sat 21 Jan 2017, 3:24 am

During a 6 week period in Dec 2016-Jan 2017 I took part in a building challenge here in Sweden. All participants got a 1/24 scale CitroŽn 15 CV (Heller) and were challenged to build it into a Hot Rod using only what came in the box, the box itself and/or the blueprints. We were also allowed to use engine and wheels from our partsboxes and,if prefeerred, plastic card end Evergreen profiles.

I used the box parts, some of the box and blueprints and a piece of clear plastic and also took the wheels from a 1/20 scale plastic toy, the rims †and 2Ĺ engine from the Red baron showrod.

The build was obviously inspired by the Red Baron, but also by the story of Georges Guynemer, a french pilot during WW1. He and his SPAD-plane was shot down in 1917, exactly 100 years ago this year.

This is how it came out:
