If anyone is interested in Citroen Ds models (about 6 different ones including convertible, ambulance, pompieres and stretch version) they had lots of them in the 99p store in Camberwell, London a few days ago.
I bought 3 for some friends, but later I have seen the same ones (Atlas brand) on sale at ebay for around 5 pounds....

Sorry I have to post again....this is a great scene were Fantomas is flying away with a DS. I was well impressed when I saw this as a kid, now it seems a bit dated but still good to see

Hi Mulley, the width is a bit like a matchbox but as it is a model of a grand car it is a bit longer than that......i guess that a ford fiesta in the same scale would be matchbox size.
ok I measured it now....the white Taxi DS is about 3.7cm wide and 10.7cm long :idea:

99p is a very good price for the DS's. Atlas isn't a make, its just a label and most of the models are made by Universal Hobbies or Norev. I've got the Safari Rally backup car, the white taxi, the grey cabrio and the "Sur Baloons"

Hi Gregor, I'd be interested in two - the number '55' - (DS19 tour de Corse 1963) in blue and the 'Break assistance de rallye 1970'. If it's not too much trouble! I'll pay up when we meet next...
