I have bought #17 but it's still sitting there waiting for #18 to be sent out in a double pack...

they are made up very well, a chromed metal part would have been wrong anyway as the original DS had all it's external brightwork in stainless polished steel (NO chrome)...

yeah they issue a refund if something happened to the stock -
sometimes there is a mag on computer stock whereas it's not in the warehouse, nothing to be worried about -
as you have seen my comments which came true on the early missing issues, they WILL keep everything in stock 'till the series ends (and a bit longer as i've seen with the 2cv),
so just wait for the mail when they tell you #19 has been stocked up and buy with your next issue -
it seems now that altaya are slow with the subscribers as well as magazine shops as the site is showing #24 as the latest issue but everyone has only issue #22...
btw. word has it the chassis could follow as #30 and the main body frame around #45...

:D I think casp is the only one here who has started to some extent...
btw #31 is an electric motor which will actuate the "hydraulic" suspension - there'll be four of them, one on each corner - so the car will raise and sink like magic, just like the original...
altaya has got it wrong on their site showing both in pictures #31 + #32 as being suspension parts (even if the description of #31 said it would be a suspension motor...)

...and guys please do not forget to paint all chassis parts semi-matt black - rather a bit on the glossy side -
take my word for it, all DS's had a black chassis no matter what external colour came with the car, you can match the paint to the suspension arm colour from #32...

having little to do last night i made a start on the DS. Parts 1-5 are complete. enven though my french is broken, at best, i got the gist of it and the easy to follow pictures made it a doddle
