Work in progress Citroen DS . Not finished yet but here is what will be a fairly good approximation of my favourite car of all time; the Citroen DS . This is now finished so go see it at http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/299501 Nick Barrett's glorious and ultra realistic DS is my main inspiration for doing my own DS. I lack the Lego and skill to do doors so I'll leave them out. It is also my first real trial with new fangled curvy and bendy Lego. Like CGI in films I think it's great but should be used sparingly. It can't do everything old Lego can do. Unlike, Nick Barrett's realism, I've tried to suggest the swoops and and lines of the DS by being abstract and leaving bits out. Few tweaks still to go but I'm getting there. Mechanically, I'm quite pleased with what I've managed to get in and because the scale (in keeping with the massive wheels) is so big, there's even room for a spare wheel, just like the real DS. My dad used to have a Citroen BX when I was a kid and so I always tried to incorporate pneumatic suspension in my Lego cars. It works quite well here, although the weight is a struggle. for the engine I've cheated and used the modern, self contained pistons and cylinders (a bit small in scale but then the old square pistons would be too big) and I bought spare parts and got the latest specialised front wheel drive units. I'm a bit disappointed with those, actually. The drive and suspension travel are fine but the steering travel is appalling and my creation consequently, has the turning circle of the Titanic. The swiveling headlights work a treat, though. Also I can't wait to show the seats which have a proper reclining mechanism. This is my first, trial upload but more photos and tech spec, when I've finished. I also have a smaller Technic car which I have finished which I'll upload in the next, few days. Dashboard and adjustments to the boot and engine are all there there all to do.
