How to build ?

You can either purchase the PDF instructions only on this shop and built it with your own parts (available in multiple color), or purchase the complete package including genuine LEGO parts plus PDF instructions, on Buildamoc shop (only available in initial version – charleston red/black for now).

The initial model was created in 2014. In 2022, I have reworked the model and the instructions, in order to replace the expensive parts such as the big shock absorbers, soft axles and certain connectors, plus correcting the visual errors and fit the 2022 instructions quality standards (as well as using new LEGO Parts for better design).

It results in a clearer and better defined PDF, and an economy of 40% on the price of the LEGO parts. I was also able to create color variations, such as the plain red version (white and black in the queue). You can find the bill of material in the instructions (also supplied in CSV/XML and PDF with the instructions), in the instructions preview below, or in the links  :

  • Charleston Red / Black (updated) – Soon Available
  • Plan Red  (updated) – Soon Available

The instructions of the Citroen 2Cv Charleston with 9L shock absorbers is no longer available for sale because outdated. Contact me on the Contact Form if you want to purchase specifically this version.
