Citroen Mehari.
Posted by mini man on Thursday, March 09, 2017 11:03 AM

Starting a Citroen Mehari,a curious beasty with a plastic body and 2cv running gear produced between 68 and 87.

 

Got the body assembled,inner front arches,dash and top panel,side doors and tailgate.

 

Spares are not a worry.....

 

 

The colour is sorted!

Will build most anything,love American cars muscle etc.Britishvehicles are a buzz too,trucks are great - want to do a jet truck,building parts up...

That's cool, i never knew they'd make a lot of one. I'll be watching with interest (and adding the kit to my wish list!!)

Yup, never heard of one either. Looks like a neat little model.

No worries guys.Thumbs Up

 

Got the chassis sprayed silver to represent a galvanised chassis,plus got the wheels sprayed and fitted.

 

Same with the steering and pedals etc.

 

Got the colour completed and I might use this base on it...

Hmm,the prob is that the 2cv is 24th and the anglia is 25th.

I have two of the cv's so might mess with one!

Cheers.

Got the 602cc flat twin air cooled engine fitted.

 

Masked up the windscreen frame and it came out nicely ( always a bit nervous unmasking.............)

 

And sprayed and fitted the extremely delicate hood frame.
