Thanks Mr K all the kind words are appreciated...

 

May be some Citroën designers have be inspired by american cars? Or a 1936' fashion?

I don't know...

Thanks guys!

 

After sanding and after sanding... Before the next (final?) paint layer, Harvey cross fingers with me,

the gasket between body and wings, of course Mr Heller forget it, but in the real life:

Lead solder wire...

Did you already saw false hinges? No?

Lovely job on the beading, Dan. Did you use super-thin CA to affix it?

I like your hinges, too... very neat.

Yes, but just by points, the paint will do the rest!

Dan I wish you had chosen black - your reference picture in black is superb. Since black can show every flaw, your perfect coachwork insures there would be none.

Lovely paint job on that and a lovely car.  My uncle is very fond of Citroen and pretty much rebuilt a DS to concourse standards - did all the hydraulic lines and everything.  I will show him this thread I think as it would interest him.

I' sorry Mr C, black is a very common colour for these cars. I choose "le charme discret de la bourgeoisie".

Google give me: the discreet charm of the bourgeoisie. Its speaks for French people but for you?

And remember, pictures lies! My coachwork is far from perfect...

Thanks to Danny and  his uncle!

As the builder you are certainly entitled to your choice. I only meant that if I could get so perfect a surface, I would be proud to present it in perfect black.

I will love this model no matter the color. :worthy:

Me too... The old fashion body (copied?) is a pure wonder! 

 

 

A few "coupés" have this kind of dashboard, very 30' fashion, I do love and I have chosen it...
