Herpa 430722

Type

Citroën GS 1971

Finely made model and almost perfectly to scale. Inserted parts: bumpers, grille, rear view mirror, steering wheel, exhaust, headlights. Painted tail lights.

However, there is one big mistake: the front wings protrude from the doors. This is particularly visible in the rear three-quarter view. This kind of incomprehensible mistake is not uncommon at Herpa. See for example the AMI 6 estate.

This car is easily disassembled by removing the bumpers (see photo). Beware: the headlights can easily escape!
