Renault Dauphine
Posted by miwi on Thursday, February 09, 2017 6:30 AM

Inspired by a Renault Dauphine with Yamaha FJ1200 engine I modifeid an old Hubly Renault Dauphine. The Hubley Chassis was replaced by a new one made out of sheet.  The proportions of the roof are a bit strange so that I corrected it to the right shape. Also the belt line wasn't straight, more wavy. I corrected that as well and add a chrome .The rims are modified 15" Fuchs with 15" rings from Scale Production. The scruffy look of the paint  was done wit Hairspray and salt technique.

Wow! That thing is drop dead cool. You did a good job of correcting the roof, and your weathering is excellent. The wheels are the perfect choice and the finish on them looks just right. I love this build.

I never knew this kit existed. Is it 1/24 scale or smaller. The model looks small, but then the Renault is a small car.

That's cool. We had one of these when I was a kid. I'd love to build  one.
