    Renault Estafette, YEEEE-HAAAAAA !
     
    The Estafette was the equivalent of Chevy Vans till 1980. These vans are as popular as Citroen HYs, but less famous abroad.
     
    The 2CVs are limited editions offered during the 70s and 80s. Iconic as well. But the real, amazing idea, is the Gendarmerie Renault 4L and Estafette pack. This has been the basic Gendarmerie pack for decades. Gendarmes replace policemen by the french countryside. Just like Sheriffs. It means that pack smells Camembert and Côte du Rhones.
     
    Last detail, but not least : associate a Gendarmerie 4L, a Gendarmerie Estafette, and an Olive green Mehari, you'll get the perfect Gendarme de St-Tropez background !

    Sassy Grass Green 1971 Hemi GTX
    Hi everyone
     
    A few years ago, I took a decision : less posts, more models.
     
    But sometimes, it's fun to go teasing 

    That interior is day-fresh. Paint is a couple weeks old, but the dash has just been glued on the tub. Semi-gloss paint is les shiny in person. I don't like mate clearcoat on Muscle-cars black vinyl. I could make better quality, spending EVEN more time0 But I have way too many ideas to. And life is short...


     
    Chassis looks better in person too. I don't mind leaving the modeling marks on mufflers. Don't real one have welding marks ?


     
    Tub-to-chassis overspray is not that bad either. I will soon do the same on Revell's 1970 Cuda.

    Very nice original GTI !!!

    Gorgeous !!!
     
    Where did you get the A/C compressor and Honeycomb wheels ?
     
    The seats are definitely 1970. To build a 1971-and-after Deluxe interior, you need some seats from a chinese Die-Cast. Maybe when you build the Buccaneer Red one. 
     
    Here are some pics of the 1974 SD I built years ago...

    Hope they will repop them.

    Wanna build this :

    Yet, with their name, catalog and developpement-possibilities (new masters from others), this remains good business...
  13. Young iron added a post in a topic Feedback For New Range of Decals !   

    Great idea !

    Do you know that Tumblr ?

    I own both the 1971 T/A and 1971 Mustang. Body proportions are odd, mostly because of their roof. Too low.

    But overally they look great. Imagine how impressive is a 1/12 71 Stang !!!

    They're definitely 1970's japanese kits : details are rough, engine shapes are wrong, seats are squary, and Dunlop tires rules. But with passion and a few kitbashing you can build great models.

    For instance, I'll build the Mustang as the Diamonds are Forever Mach 1.

    Now, the question is : will they ever reissue all of them ? I want these Mercedes sooooo badly !
