    I started on this project months ago with a tacky looking gold Matchbox '68 DS very much like this one (but more playworn)

    After losing everything but the stripped body and the wheels I had set aside for it to my ever-growing array of projects and my absent-mindedness, I sourced a donor car for the glass, interior and base I needed to finish this diecast of what's basically my all-time favorite car in the world.

    The interior/bumper piece had US market rubber bumper guards & all-red taillights added on, along with a detailed two-tone blue and black interior matching 1968-72 DS21 Pallas specifications, the nose grilles were highlighted, and the glovebox latch and rear-view mirror are visible here.

    Wheels look to be Greenlight or High Speed brand and unknown casting source (but were almost certainly from a damaged diecast found on the second hand market), and have been accurately narrowed on the back axle & detailed to look like stock DS wheels.

    Body has been painted in Testors Extreme Lacquer "Icy Blue", which is between "Bleu Andalou" and "Bleu de Camargue" factory paint colors, with base painted to match. I will be doing undercarriage detail along with full lighting & body trim detail, to the point of including US market headlights and side markers.
