Citroën Mehari Heller 1/24

Standard build, with just a few detailing and corrections. Pretty much an OOB job.
As soon as I saw it in the shop I knew I had to buy it .. and build it asap. In fact it didn't even went to the stash ... it went from the shop right to my workbench.
The kit is rather basic in some aspects , all these items are missing :
fuel tank
simplistic fuel filler cap
no clear plastic for the head-lamps
no brake pump
no heating hoses
no speedo
no handbrake lever
no ashtray
no bonnet straps
Nevertheless the engine is quite detailed, but some tubes and connectors are missing. In fact some tubes are on the sprues, which I guess are for the 2CV kit.
I added just a few things to get it right ,but not much more.
I can stand with all that.

Beware, gates to some parts are really tiny and prone to break ... I've just lost one windshield wiper ...

Congratulations. Not an easy kit to deal with. If we wan`t to make it better our imagination is the limit . I did mine a few years ago and I`m still looking for the right side rear view miror.

I also made one, and I think it's a very fun kit.
The orange color seems to go very well 🙂

Yes ... the kit is really fun to build ... no major build troubles ... What's shocking for such a moder kit is all the parts it lacks ..... headlights glass it's just a flagrant missing

Oh, I agree. Headlights are clumsy.
