getting this one too, olivier,
do you happen to have the original 4 test issues? I do and see there's at least a difference with the steering wheel issue...
the test had the nice two-spoke wheel furnished in nice bordeaux with silver spokes, the standard issue seems to be a three spoke black thing -
and a different kind of steering column...

Hi BA,

I don't think so, there was a lot of parts and screws in some of number between 1 and 10, and for the bench in fact it's the first we have to screw, in the DS and the Beetle and also the Alpine, they were delivered nearly complete

Hi BA,

Yes the support is made of metal, good quality and no trouble with the screws.
Did you receive the parts for the DS and the Beetle ?

Hello everybody,

Here are the numbers 15-16 and 17, not many parts and really simple to build in fact. But it looks a little bit "plastic".
In France, many have put carpet and change the seats for leather, sometime it looks good but we also have some kind of odd colors. As it's a 1937 car and it's a Citroën, a "popular" car, I'm not sure that there was carpet, may be leather seats (but not white ones).

Hi Olivier,
It’s looking good.
I am also making this Citroen Cabriolet and have just collected my first 15 issues. Next batch won’t be collected until March next year so I am keen to see how your build develops.

Thanks very much Alan,

The number 18 is the other side of the 17, but the 19 will be the biggest part of the kit (the "chassis"), it's a little bit strange as there is no chassis on a Citroën TA 11 BL !!

Thanks Olivier
I look forward to seeing your next updates.
I have been impressed so far and have to admit that some of the build has been easy, but some has been quite difficult and fiddly which has been challenging. The steering column has some of the smallest screws I have ever seen!
Interestingly, the Eaglemoss back to the future DeLorean has similar screws and identical labeling which make me think that they share the same manufacturer.
