Martin Oostrom Started this new kit. Detail is very nice, fit is very good, but ..... a lot of parts are distorted. Tape and clamps are necessary to get everything in the right spot. Now's hoping the glue will hold forever
Spanjaard try some warm water.... but be careful with the clamps

Martin Oostrom There are only two seats in this van. Who wants to ride shotgun? The rest can find a spot in the back
I bent it like somebody. The result is okay, especially as I have some plans for this little van.
Today I did some seats and I worked on the nose some.

Martin Oostrom You're right James. Back then the French were going cheap and practical over pretty.
Think Citroën Mehari, Renault 4. Some say, they never stopped making ugly cars
There are exceptions of course. The Renault Alpine, Citroën DS, and the uhm, uhm

Peter Hardy Really? More at home on Greg's bench with a red head on board!
Daniel Klink @Martin.good progress mate.. I am really curious how this develops.. But iam sure you will present a great result in the end..
I am still driving a Citroen from time to time I would say the one and only Citroen
With only two cylinders.
Peter Hardy Pretty excited to see this one all finished Marty. I have seen the van in so many 60's spy movies. Kind of exotic really.

Alec K Cool project Martin . I agree with Peter, this thing is unique. But most Citroens from back then were pretty exotic IMO.

Martin Oostrom Lode, I'll try even harder in honour of your dad
Peter and Alec, this van is so ugly, it becomes beautiful.
I used my Molotow pen for the first time today. Curious about the result when dry....
Other than that, only some clear sprayed in prep for some decals.

Tim Heimer Martin, I'm sure you'll do justice to this ugly duckling! LOL. Also, FYI, I put the stripe decals on that Ford Torino, should you still be contemplating it to see what the issue is. It's very minor and I think there can be a better way to apply them than what I did. Best wishes on your van.
