      Hi,

      i begun this car since 2011 : 2CV CITROEN AZ 1956
      2CV CITROEN AZ 1956 build from scratch, Scale 1/6-schema-jpg2CV CITROEN AZ 1956 build from scratch, Scale 1/6-2cv-drawing-1-jpg
      This drawing coming from : http://www.citroenet.org.uk/passenge...2cv-index.html

      It's a special RC car because I want a true reduce car whith a true reduce motor and the remote control must be completly hiden

      Why 1/6 scale ? I saw for 1/8 but it's very small for make a nitro fuel motor and a quarter scale I don't like because it's to big

      Next time I will show you motor progress

      Denis

    Thanks Jampertim and JunkGTZ,

    Yes It's will be great to make all in metal forming but don't forget this car must be light for run with is own scaled functional motor, and this motor is very small compare to the complete car

    I resize a 8mm led to 6.5mm, it's posible if you don't cut the LED's chip because 5mm it's to small for my scale

    Hello Denis!

    Thank you for sharing with us! You are so resourceful! I see new ways of working every time I come to this forum, and you are a very good teacher!

    -Don


    PS -When you were "Spinning" metal sheet to form the central hub of your cooling fan, is that Steel? It looks like Steel and I can see Brazing? Did you have to anneal or were you able to form it in one pass?

    -And your use of Zinc, intrigues me, do you have any suggestions for its uses?

    -Again, Thank you for all that you show us and share!

    Thanks for your interest for this topic Don
    I made lathe metal spinning directly with mild steel sheet 1mm, I had weld the cooling fan with brass flux coated rod it' cheaper than silver brazing but you must heat more
    You can make many litle parts in zinc aloy like : carburetor, handles ... I don't like it for big parts because his volumic weigth is 9 is more than steel. I prefer aluminium alloy for made big parts
    I like share even if it's not always "academic" in comparison with the greats members of this forum who make a very fine job

    The Citroen 2cv was a economic car
    On the first 1948 2cv you just had a single electric bulb for do all : rear lighting and two half number plate lighting and on the left you had a simply round reflector

    Rear lights left and right was add in 1954
    For the front safety belts you must wait 1970
