CITROEN Traction 11CV BL History:
The Citroën Traction Avant was a range of mostly 4-door saloons and executive cars, with four or six-cylinder engines, produced by the French manufacturer Citroën from 1934 to 1957. Approximately 760,000 units were produced.
Whilst front-wheel drive and independent suspension had been well established in the mass market by Auto Union and others some years before, the Traction Avant pioneered mass-production of a crash resistant, unitary, monocoque body. Additionally, the car was also an early adopter of rack and pinion steering.
Although the car’s name emphasized its front-wheel drive power delivery (“Traction Avant” literally means “front traction”), the car stood out at least as much by its much lower profile and stance – made possible by the absence of a separate chassis under the car’s unitary body – sharply distinguishing it visually from its contemporaries.

About Cobi Brick Sets:

Are COBI Sets appropriate for children?
COBI Brick Sets are great for children and adults but you should be aware that younger children will need help with larger sets due to the huge number of parts and layered building style. We always encourage trying out one of the 1:48 scale tank sets to start out as they are smaller and are a great way to test the legendary COBI Brick quality.

For some reason I am drawn to these, what could be perceived as a non-military kits finding them interesting and a lot less common than the typical tank or airplane. What I found most interesting in the this particular kit was how precisely the pieces fell into place, the clearances just right and the fit of all once assembled. As an engineer I can appreciate the build up of the pieces to the end result. What I thought was especially cool was how the spare tire was affixed. It really gave me some idea on how to do some other designs that I’ve been thinking about.
