1/18 renault 5 gt turbo (blunty's replica)
« on: 23:06, Tue 16 February 2010 »
well this one isnt going to be as big as the last one as it didnt need much work doing to it but i bought a ph2 rally one to make into blunty's replica
its finished now (well almost ) so i will start from the beginning  :mrgreen:
when i first got it






then it had 3 holes in it 2 in the bonnet and 1 in the roof which i filler'd


and sanded

all in primer

and the top

and finished (looks a bit darker when its inside)

and put back together final shots




and some pics of bluntyr5gtt's car in comparison







ive still got a few bits to do such as the engine bay and the reg plates and then it will be finished and i will be on to the next one :)

comments welcome

Yeah, it does sit really well! But the turbines are 16" right? Did you make any modifications to make them fit. I currently have some 15" alloys with winter tires. The tire sides are quite tall (65 mm I think), but there is definately no room for a lowering. The rear bumper is too close to the tire!

Oh! I always thought they were 16". I don't know why, though. That's crazy :lol:  :lol:  My mistake.
Then there shouldn't be any problems lowering my car with some summer tires. MAGNIFICENT :mrgreen:
