I was stunned the first time i received Neucraft Models ... F***ing detail accuracy and Greatest resin work i ever saw on the market .
few parts but separate tracks, it's a pleasure to paint .
The models fit together without glue .

Hope same quality .

This is the revised Citroën Traction Avant CV11.  For those who had already brought one will notice the differences.
Major update to the curvature of the rear portion of the vehicle making it more standout like the real car; and the front windshield now have more details.
The front steering mechanism is now a standalone piece giving it more details and ease of assembly; also simplify the casting process for us.











Enjoy!
;)

Usual Wikipedia sanity notice.
Useful for a lot of things (Stalingrad?)

Any chance of British build bumpers etc? Period cars are rather lacking in this scale.

You might have seen some on Sunday evenings on BBC and ITV.

Your improvements look good, I'm certainly up for a couple of these (ones in German use tended to be painted black - especially those in Gestapo/SD use, ones used by the other branches of the German forces (& those in civilian use) were usually in whatever their original colour was, though I've seen images of ones in LW use in their typical softskin blue-grey).
 When do you think you'll start selling them?

Looks good. Probably worth looking into the possibility of other civilian vehicles. Particularly when they had at least some use by the armies of the combatants.

I'd get one to use as terrain, but I don't like the solid windows.  It seems strange to provide a reasonably detailed underside, but have solid windows and no interior (not even some very rudimentary seats).

I suspect the solid windows are based on the cost/looks decision.it is "easy" (for given values of easy) to get a solid vehicle to look good, getting the windows and interior to work is difficult.

Of course if you have a detailed underside you can use it  upside down.
