Citroen CV11 Door

by: Vinnie Branigan [ TEACHER ]


Originally published on:
Armorama

introduction
A very useful diorama accessory in 1/48th scale was the release by Tamiya of the Citroen CVII, which could be used as a civilian car, staff car etc. Many people might want to depict it with one of it's doors open though.....enter Hauler.


the er..........door
All you get in this diminutive set is one door. It's a nice door though. What it does mean is that you can now cut out the one from the kit and replace it with this one! No door furniture is provided, so you're expected to use the inside handle from the kit, and you'll also have to provide your own glazing. It's very finely cast, and will certainly look the business when used and left in an open position!


conclusion
A beautifully cast replacement door, completely necessary if you wish to depict it open on the Tamiya kit! Recommended!

SUMMARY
Hauler have produced this one-door set for the Tamiya Citroen CVII, necessary if you wish to depict the door open.

Hi Vinnie Just one remark (from a French ) the name of this car is Citroen 11 CV . CV = Chevaux-vapeur, just like HP = horse-power . It is also known as "Traction Avant" or just "Traction" in France... Frenchy

A door? No hardware but what comes off the original? Hmm. "Diminutive" says it all. Hauler has had some REALLY, really nice items...what were they thinking? A door? This one, nice as it may be, goes into the "let down" drawer of AM items. A door.... Mike
