Time Travelling with Va Va Voom!
Oh, wait a minute. That's Renault. This one's a Citroen. Never mind, it seemed a good idea at the time. What am I on about? Well, here goes!
And once again Tamiya come to the rescue, with the excellent Citroen 11CV Staff car.
Although I do have one question. Why, oh why do they insist on making tiny circular parts as separate bits to glue onto the wheel when they could have just have easily molded it onto the wheel in the first place? Utterly unnecessary faffing that saw three of the little blighters ping off the frame and into the ether, never to be seen again. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
Anyhoo,with a little more work, the chassis began to look like this:
The next part of the instructions deals with the car interior. The Delorean was always a two seater. I think the most people it carried was three. Lucky Marty. However, this car will have to carry the eminent Fascist Adolf, his chronically misguided love interest Eva, the corpulent Goring, the enigmatic Martin Boorman, and a squad of Waffen-SS as well. Realy should find room for Blondi the dog too. Need to find an appropriate model first, though. Best keep the four seats in then! And if anyone asks, I'll simply remind them of the Tardis!
This one in particular!
So here's a final shot of the kit before I start butchering it. Which seems a shame in many respects, as I quite like the look of it. I may well have to make another one properly as a scenic item for my more serious games...
And on that bombshell, "Goodnight!"
