<p>This car ambulance is owned by a local garage. He specializes in Panhard cars. I saw this ambulance and was convinced it was going to be my nex project.</p>
<p>I already ordered a Whitebox Citroën CX in scale 1/24. Now sourcing the other parts needed and contacting the owner. The real deal is 975cm long. Got to get my calculator out . More news will follow</p>

Ooohh! That is a challenge. It is a tilt bed too. Curious to see how or if you do that too. I like the name on the car of the owner? as this is definitely a different breed of car.

Once the model is received, the thinking can begin.

About the owner's surname: "Breed" in Dutch means "wide"

The ee is pronounced like the ai in your word plaid

OKAY, so I did actually start working on this project. I bought a Whitebox 1/24 scale Citroën CX2500. Brand new and really beautiful. But nevertheless chop chop. I had to cut the back away and now I have to think about extending the back.....

Like Andy says This is going to be interesting. Please take pictures. I know it is hard to remember some times but....I hope you can. When you get to the pivot on the deck joining the car, I will be specially interested.
Have fun with the thinking.

As for the shops are all closed, I had to source my stock of obselete bits and bobs. I had some aluminium profiles saved that was used makingthe Sunstar cabinet. So I thought I could start with the two extension bars, These are just for testing, so I don't know if I shall incorporate them into the final project. Had to do some drawing and sketching first. The wheel arched were drawn, then I found a box full of wheels and axles too in a cabinet. The next step was to shap the wheel arches. and saw a slope into the extension bars. Job done.













More to come.

Someone has got to a lot of work and turned out some fine vehicles, all nicely done.
Theo, you should get some great ideas on this conversion.
You have done well on the sides of the decking. Looks like your project is coming along.
