Repairing a Legend

  • move
This is a 1/24 scale garage diorama including the Citroen 2CV Charleston from Heller and antique garage, tools & mechanics sets from Fujimi.

This is actually my first ever car model to make and it was an enthusiastic project to have a classic garage theme where the Charleston is being repaired. I added some local features to give the garage an Egyptian 60's look including some old posters that I printed and some old money bills and old car plates. I called the diorama "Repairing a Legend".

As I have no access in Egypt to modeling tools, the painting work was all done manually with a regular brush and regular acrylic paints.
