if you liked the classic 2CV, i think you are totally gonna love this one!
now it's pretty much studless, smooth, SNOT technique has been used many times (on the whole rear half; there are even bricks with studs pointing downwards xD) and i have to mention halfstud offset for the rear wheels :-)
the car has some problems though. no moving parts (but thanks to that i was allowed to make the rear axle pretty solid, because i could use the room in the rear :-P), the side windows behind the cab should be higher (i mean bigger), but there is no way to make them correctly high (they would have to be a stud lower - SNOT technique - but that would be awfully ridiculous and unrealistic) without ruining the roof, there is also no steering wheel, but proportions are proportions ;-) and the minifig a) is used to make the care less fiddly and b) has to have arms turned backwards to fit inside xD
but though all this it (at least i think) looks like it should look. but this is it. it only "looks" - no features.
but the thing i hate the most are the photos i uploaded. it looks so much better, sleaker, smoother, just better in real life. i will try to do better job tomorrow :-)
but the thing i love nearly more than anything on it is that the wheels are uncovered so they can be on the same axle as the front wheels.
sorry for the photos. the quallity is lower than i thought. on my camera they look good though. but they always look great, clean and sharp on my camery, but crappy and blurry on the pc. sorry. :-)
here are the pics, enjoy!
here are the promissed "split to pieces" pictures: enjoy! :-)
you are so right! know the crazzy nun-driver from the movie with Funnes (don't know the proper name in english)? 2cv is so uggly as it's actually cute :-). i don't know if it's international nickname but in my country it's called "the duck" i call it "ugly duckling" myself :-)
This is a really creative piece. The step by step photos are awesome. It goes to show just how innovative you are. I have a love/hate relationship with the 2CV. They're hard to kill, but also so ugly! Keep up the good work. Regards, Eric.
