Doesn't someone here collect BX models?

Tell us about BXs you have spotted on the road, or BXs/parts spotted for sale including eBay finds.

Curious - it says it's a 1988 model yet clearly the car is a Mk1 judging by the front indicator. :?

Yeah the paint scheme is 1988 but it is a mk1. Quality\'s alright, nothing special. It\'s the same as the red 16TRS they do.....with a funny shape nose profile.

The best model for accuracy on BXs is the 4TC Evo (#17, the IXO one....#15 is average) or the 4TC road car by UH, although the roof profile isn\'t quite right.

No decent valvers sadly :( Only a silver Heco resin kit which looks a bit cack and goes for silly money when they do come up. Come on Minichamps, sort us out!!

The much talked about recently OttoMobile 1:18 seems pretty accurate to my eyes... :oops:

Why can't someone make a 1:18 CX? It is very frustrating - I have a Traction Avant, 2CV, DS, SM, XM and BX in 1:18, but no CX (let alone a S1 Prestige) to be found... :(

I think Neo do a model 1/18 CX... Although it's a S2 GTi Turbo.

And I have one of those valver models Kitch... Bought of ebay last year with a damaged a-pillar for £15 8) It's currently at Grand Prix models being repaired and painted white :)

You\'ve got one for £15? Now that\'s not too shabby at all! Is it the ph2?

P1 sadly... Still cool to have one though.

It was listed as a 'Citroen BX 16s', so I guess nobody noticed it :)
