In my youth there was only one capo di tutti anatre, one king of 2CVs, the Charleston. Stylish and you actually spotted a lot in ‘80's Holland. So of course I have a few of those.
And during my many rambles on French casts someone (sorry but I forgot who it was?) pinpointed me on a Hipsabrick design on the 2CV charleston. And there was no way I wasn’t gonna make it!
But as many bricks I seem to have I still needed more so luckily BvdV - The Dutch Engineer knew of a source to order bricks: both Lego’s webshop themselves as Bricklink have methods of ordering specific bricks. The latter being way more complete than Lego’s own site.
I think I have ‘m all now so it’s building this weekend! And that could just be next week’s subject for French Friday ;-)
This one is also from the Hachette series, a very resourceful series if you’re into 2CVs, as I showed two weeks ago with all those Fourgonnettes.
Too bad this Charleston isn’t the best of the bunch from the series. The rear axle definitely won’t cooperate to have it rolling decent, heck you even have to fiddle the rear wheel a bit to have it touching the ground with all four tires at the same time! So I might just go look for a better alternative. It might even be time for getting me a 1/18 2CV anyway right?
Et c’est ça! I’ll return to the brick frenzy and will keep you updated next week. Bon Week-End!
