Cada bricks 1:12 Citroen 2CV | C61026W
Another great build from Cada, fast shipping (7 days delivered to the Netherlands) very nice quality, fit and finish is very good, clear instructions.
Really enjoyed building the 2CV with my daughter (she did most of it 😊)
This being my 4th Cada set, I'm impressed by the quality of all the Cada sets so far.
Compared to Lego Creator Expert's Fiat 500 (another quirky European car), the CaDa Bricks Citroen 2CV has 200+ additional pieces, plus working steering, for $10 less. It also has the option of being remote-controlled. The box, instructions, and the car itself are quite detailed. It's worth noting all of the Citroen logos on the box were covered with tape, despite this being an officially-licensed product . I personally thought the abundance of tiny pieces made building the Citroen more tedious than building the Fiat, although you may think otherwise. However, a few small gripes prevent a perfect score. A one-off piece for the engine was missing (although I had a similar-looking spare piece I used instead). A few pieces that are the same color look almost identical, which can lead to mistakes. A few steps in the instructions have incorrect colors for a few pieces, which can lead to confusion. Finally, a few sections (mirrors, roof, trunk) were rather fragile (although to be fair, the roof has to be this way, because of the optional remote-controlled feature). Overall, I enjoyed the 2CV and will buy from CaDa Bricks in the future.
I was impressed with how fast the shipping was. The Citroen model is very detailed and fun to build. The instructions are straight forward and easy to follow. Overall a great building experience. This was my first Cada set and look forward to my next!
