Juan, you are too funny!  I feel your pain, but the second one looks very good.

Thanks Oscar...   

 

A bit frustrating but the lesson was received loud and clear; you can see how I was rushing with this project... Which in all honest truth voids the sole purpose of the hobby.

 

These friggin' newbies and their rush to finish their projects uh???

I've had a love for the R5 since I first laid me peepers on one back in 1983 ! It was charcoal grey with a charcoal and red interior and some subtle blue accents . Its "L"-shaped tiller really grabbed my attention !

It was apparent that whomever owned the car got it via the black market , as it was sans the hideous US-spec side marker lamps , big truck bumpers , and catalytic converter ;) .

 

Don't concern yourself too much with the paint fubar , Juan . Afterall , it is a Rallye car and not some primped street car . Battle scars add to the flavour !

 

BTW , does Tamiya still produce this kit in 'street' form ?? I want one !! Heck , even a race-prepped version would suffice (other than its tyres) ...

Thanks John,

 

The love for Renault is mutual, This brand was the commanding line back in the 70's and 80's in South America...  As a matter of fact I learned how to drive on a Renault 6 (Emerald Green none the less)...

(That bag of bones on the left would be me :P, the "bee gee" looking guy to the right is my father).

 

And here is another of him in his 12 Rally...

Juan, your not the only one that stuff happens to. It bits me in the behind EVERY TIME I get in a rush. It is a hard habbit to break. The cars look GREAT . I'm sure your friend in S.A. will love it.

Thanks bud.

 

My friend knows my limitations as far as model building goes, so I guess if I manage to make it hold together AND "if" the car can be taken to him in one piece he should be OK  :D

 

Could not understand the position of the fog lights, so they went up straight...

Am I to assume that '68 in your pic is to be the next build judging by the trend lately? If so.. I'll be watching that one ESPECIALLY carefully :)

Haha good stuff.. I'll be watching :) It's a lovely easy kit to build, you're gonna enjoy it. I always find non-Japanese kits to be hit and miss.. It's definitely a hit. Remember.. the 426 Hemi ONLY fits with the bonnet with the scoop. If you want a stock look, you're gonna have to go stock underneath too. Look forward to seeing it! :)

Easy uh???...   I was freaking out just by peeking through the bags  :wacko: , Thanks God I have your build thread to use as reference.

 

I think I should stick to Lego blocks  :lol:

 

Ah!!!, I didn't see the excess residues from the convertible molding Mike mentioned in the Sauber thread...  Do you think is because this was the Special Edition?

Both of mine were the Special Edition kits, and both had the same issue with the "leftover" from the '69's vinyl top. Who knows, maybe Revell cleaned up the tooling? Here's a couple of pics of the "issue" on my second body...

Thanks for the pics Mike, I caught a few imperfections throughout the trees, but nothing major...   Never before attempted to remove logos, door handles or turn signals, nor have I tried the putty, so thinking about cutting and sanding is a whole new thing. 

 

Do you have a thread for that particular build bud?

Juan, I never finished mine. I started in on it when it was first released a few years ago, and got it all ready for paint. Then I discovered the "softer" Revell new formula plastic...I used House Of Kolors Turquoise paint (Which is a lacquer, meaning it has very "hot" solvents) and promptly ruined the body. I ordered all the ruined parts from Revell, and by the time I got them, I had moved on to about 10 other projects, so it just got boxed back up. One day I'll break it back out and finish it!
