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...
