CitroŽn 20 DS 1970
Too big for minifig, but still I wouldnt call it a "large scale vehicle"...
About this creation
After the success with the 2CV MOC, I wanted to see if I could again do a "perfect MOC". (Perfect in teh sense that the 2CV moc captures the essense of teh car with few bricks and simple construction)
Suffice to say that I could unfortunatly NOT repeat that! :-(
So, even if the MOC fails on a lot of aspects, and it is too big for minifig-size, itīs still quite nice, so Iīll show it anyway!











The root to many of the MOCīs shortcoming are of course the reduce size, as seen especially well in the next photo;




NO! The colour-combo is NOT a coincidence. I salute you Nick Barrett. The picture below should look somewhat familiar to many users here at MOCpages;

Hehehe...

Happy easter-holidays, if youīre so lucky...

Quoting Henrik Hoexbroe Sorry, no photo. Wheels are held on Tecnic half-pins, a light-saber blade (or other bar) and a plate (modified) (http://www.bricklink.com/PL/4081b.jpg?0). Hope this explains it...
*sigh* That modified brick technique I already looked at. I thought I had it wrong. To get the width of the front axle a bit larger I used 2 minifig hammers instead of a 4L light-saber. Moreover, I had the feeling my offset was different since the wheels on your DS are positioned slightly more towards the front. :S Nevertheless thanks for the tip and keep on building the good stuff! :D

This is one of thse creations, that does no need a title- it is that well-built! Let's start off by saying that i love this little car model! It is so well-built, and recognizable at this scale! The shaping of the car is really accurate- the front looks the best in IMO. You even put the wipers on- a great detail! I would really like to see a picture of the chassis. Great work! Keep building! -Anthony Dunne

EPIC. Oh and i figured out how to make your 2cv i changed the back a little because of a lack of spiciftic parts but it has a racing stripe!and that was an awesome idea for the axle!!!!!?????!!!!!?????

Elegant! Such a difficult shape! It looks like you had to fight for it, but in the end, you captured that shape perfectly! The rear wheels are...delightful! I love how you capture the look of the vehicle with such certainty. The make of the car is apparent with one quick glance at the thumbnail. The close up pictures only add to the wonder. Like all your builds, this is something to study slowly and deliberately. Attack!

Quoting spearhafoc ... Brilliant! I like it very much. I would be interested in a photograph of the bottom though. I can't figure out how you did the suspension of the wheels :)

This is my favorite car! Even though I'd do some details differently (headlights for example) it don't mean that this little beauty ain't grand! As soon as I saw it I was wooow, great! It is very hard to do this model in such a small scale so I didn't even want to try! Awesome job!

It's a good model regardless the scale, and it does look a bit like the DS found in Nick Barret's icon. X-)

One of the best small scale cars on MOCpages. Nuff said. 5 stars
  April 21, 2011
I will maybe say(without being an expert at all!) than the rear should be a little less narrow... But I really recognised the car, and it's nice! And I will add, as usual Henrik! :-)

That's my car! Thanks Henrik, and thanks for the mention - the last picture is especially good of course... I've made a six wide one as well but it's not as good as this superbly evocative creation. It shows that size isn't everything!
