Scaling New Heights

I've mentioned before that lockdown has helped me rediscover my love of model kits. Yesterday I finished my latest project.

Citroën brought out the 007 Edition 2CV to tie in with For Your Eyes Only, in which James Bond drives a yellow 2CV through the Corfu countryside.

When I found out there was an aftermarket set of 007 decals, and resin headlights in the 1970s/80s square style, designed to go on Tamiya's 1:24 scale 2CV kit, I was hooked.

I took a lot of care over this one, dry brushing the seats to give a worn effect, using masking tape to do the chrome trim, and spending hours applying the tiny bullet hole decals (including my initials in Morse over the left rear wheel), and I'm really pleased with how it's turned out:
