Topless Renault 5 Turbo

Topless Renault 5 Turbo

This is a test of embedding photos from Flickr, as well as (I think) my first post here.

I built this open topped Renault 5 from the Heller 1:43rd kit. It's based upon the image it's posed beside, from a magazine I bought in France in 1984. Not perfect, but I'm rather proud of it.

Never seen or heard of it. But it looks cool. Good job.

When I read the title to this post I expected something perticulatly odd and ugly. I mean lets face it, the Renault 5 is a lot of things, but pretty isn't one of them. However, I am amazed at just how good this thing looks. The topless 5 really works. Very cool, thanks for posting.

I have a 1/24 Tamiya curbside kit of the R5 Turbo that I have been trying to decide what to do with. Hhmmm...

It looks extremely funky. well done are you going to add the tunnels behind the seats as in the drawing because that would pretty up that area.
