that looks great John, must chase one of those. I always prefer utility vehicles to have business graphics adorning them.

@geoff-jowett .......it seems there are two distinct schools of thought on that matter Geoff.....I`m with you on tradesmen/utility vehicles.......and feel 180° to the contrary when it comes to cars

Actually John, I've just finished another kit. A 1930s Mercedes Benz van. I bought it for the colorful graphics/decals as much as anything else.

@john-barry yes John. Love the kits, 6 months ago never would have thought I'd have a French Mercedes Fruit and Veg van in my 1/24 collection!

@geoff-jowett.......... as you may recall,I still struggle to complete my first adult assembled model kit.....this doesn`t keep me from buying the occasional new kit to fill a nook or cranny in an out-of-the-way closet.....seeing your green grocer`s wagon reminded me of a model I bought years back....not a kit but I did disassemble it 🙄 .....I think of it from time to time,alone in the dark closet,parted out into plastic freezer bags

are you referring to this Citroen John, it looks great. Why not give them another go? You may recall I hadn't made one in nearly 60 years until a few months back. Now so glad I have. I do reckon I am slowly getting better at it too, ever so slowly! Every couple of weeks or so I search through about 10 pages in the ebay automotive 1/24, 1/25 sections and I reckon every time I find something I want that I hadn't seen before. Its also an enjoyable retirement activity for me. I find I'm spending 2-3 hours most afternoons at it. Good fun!

that`s the exact Citroen I have Geoff,but the one in the video is not mine.......as for resuming model cars it`s a matter of horizontal space here......I enjoy seeing what you,and a few others, are doing with the kits here.....and someday I expect to return to the "sport"
