For this article Ebbro provided me a test-shoot that’s to say a test of an injection mold, and there were no references about the year this DS model represented belonged to, so I started to look around the net for pictures that could help me. Looking at the body carefully and comparing with several photos, it was obvious that I had to make sure about certain points.
Another problem is that most of the pictures I found are of restored vehicles which don’t guarantee the accuracy of the original car and the old epoch pictures are not high quality ones.
On the other hand, the instruction manual supplied with the kit obviously was incomplete and the color references in the instructions, only mentioned two colors: aluminium for the engine and clear red for the taillights.
I propose you to read this unusual article where I share the work accomplished to build the scale model of this singular car too.
Too late…but not for you
After having published, in my Facebook page, a picture of my finished DS announcing the future article, a DS avid fan send me a note remarking a detail in the spare wheel. This observation led us to a very gratifying conversation, but it would have been better if it had taken place during the construction.
Although it was too late for me, the notes and information shared with this DS fan allowed me to add details to the text, so that other modelers can build a model as faithful as possible. So I thank to Marc Louvigné for letting me learn more about the DS.
