Video Presentation




  • Citroën Traction at 1/15 scale (same as my 2CV, Mehari, 205 GTI)
  • Dimensions : 33cm (L) x 13cm (W) x 12cm (H), Wheels : Ø49mm, Weight : 630gr
  • Based on Traction 11B model with curved trunk
  • Steering with lever / rod mechanism and working steering wheel
  • Optional Hand Of God
  • Front Wheel Drive without differential (not enough place at this scale)
  • Green 4-cylinder engine with moving pistons and working fan
  • Torsion bar independent rear suspension
  • Openable elements : 4 doors, trunk and double paneled hood (can be removed)
  • Available in two versions : Rounder or Flat Trunk (malle bombée ou plate)

Whilst front-wheel drive and four-wheel independent suspension had been established in the mass market by Auto Union, the Traction “Avant” pioneered integrating these into a mass-production, crash resistant, unitary, monocoque body. It was available only in black before 1953 that is why I chose this color as an homage.
