ICM 1910 Renault Taxi 1/24
Posted by gwaltz on Sunday, August 9, 2020 3:42 PM

I am getting close to finishing the ICM Renault taxi. If you have never built an ICM kit, then you need to try one. They're really detailed and although complex, the parts fit extremely well. This taxi is complete with a tiny two cylinder engine, vinyl tires and detailed interior. The only concern I have is lack of brass plating for the trim. I used Tamiya titanium gold and it looks pretty good, like unpolished brass. The car is red, with black fenders and bright yellow chassis. I really have enjoyed this kit. I have also built ICM Ford model T, and it  too is impressive but delicate.

Thanks for the info, Gregory. I have been interested in getting one of the old ICM Ford kits, and curious about what these kits are like. I've seen photos of some built-ups, and they seem like nice kits.

The Model T I have built is really nice,difficult to build, but very delicate and accurate. No plated parts so you need to use metalized paint. Came out nice, though. I have the T fire engine, also looks like a good kit.
