Renault 4

 

After finishing Pinocchio I had a few months left before the model fair to build another model and I decided upon embarking into unknown territory, namely a car model. This proved to be a major challenge. After all the model was not finished in time and Pinocchio alone not being spectacular enough, I skipped the model fair, and finished the Renault.

This is what came out after all:

The model has the registration plates of my first Renault 4, bought second hand in the early 80’s. After this one was brought to the scrapyard, another 3 or 4 followed.

The model is fully suspended, has remote steering and could drive once in both directions. Alas, due to poor construction the reverse started to slip, before I could take some video.

Especially the roof and the doors are very fragile and gave me headaches while building.

 

Here are some more details:
