Charles King has taken a break from trucks and sent in pictures of a burnt out Citroen 2CV in a diorama titled "Make a deal".

Excellent work. I really love the springs on the burnt out seat.

I might not be able to produce a model equal to his efforts, but I would like to know more about the display base. I'm guessing it's the Euro version of a 2x4 with rough edges. Any idea if the words are letters mounted on the block, or engraved into it?

That is a really cool scene you have created. Nicely done. I can almost hear the owner trying to drive up the price by saying something like....."It's a great car and I hate to part with it but..."

Thanks guys. Randy, it could just be. But thr funny thing about this scene, is that, they are not referring to the car... Its actually another car. Thats the trick with this dio.

Mt apologies for not responding to this question. Better later than never. The letters are laser cut from balsa; I am guessing. I bought them at an arts n'craft store. I just don't remember the brand name.

No problem, thanks. I suspect I could find letters like that a local stores without too much trouble.

I would think so. Good luck, and keep me updated. I was trying to find the exact same product but they were out and am still looking.

You're welcome Charles. It is a nice dio. I like all of the extra items sitting around. It all makes for a nice scene.

Thanks,
