Good afternoon friends. So the "baby" Renault is assembled. Because it's -9 outside now and it's snowing, then the final photoset was done in photobox from Aliexpress. Photographed with my phone, so please excuse the quality.

What can I say about the set - firewood-firewood, to make a normal model you need to work hard. This is especially true for the final assembly. You can’t really check it dry, and then surprises begin. The underhood was heavily modified, the headlights, the brake master cylinder made from scratch, the exhaust manifold sewing and the ventilation thing, which is in the corner near the brake cylinder.

As a result, I am satisfied with the result, but I will definitely not return to Italeri soon.

Interesting subject,  model is very well done.  Renault was imported into this country by American Motors back in the 80's. I owned 3 of them and drove several of these. They were good little cars. Thanks for posting. 

Really well done under the hood, nice work overall.  The 3 bolt wheels always made me a little nervous.
