WANTED RENWALL REVIVALS EXNER BUGATTI
Posted by BUGATTI FAN on Tuesday, November 20, 2018 10:15 AM

Hi Guys, Can anybody help? I am a UK modeller seeking a Renwall Revivals Bugatti that was of the Virgil Exner Bugatti Car from the 1960's. The possibility of sourcing an unbuilt kit is remote and would be probably too expensive, so ideally I am looking for a glue bomb or a built model that has missing parts. The object of the exercise is to fully restore one using modern modelling materials for display in the Bugatti Trust Museum here in the UK. Has anyone got one kicking around the attic/basement gathering dust in an old shoebox and unlikely to ever get built, who would be interested in helping me out in this venture?

If so please contact me through this forum messaging service. Many thanks.

Your request might get more traction in the "Where Can I Get" section of the forum.

Are you familiar with the actual kit? The Renwal Revival kits are very basic, and would require much work before a credible museum piece could be created.

Bainford, thanks for your reply.  I made their Packard way back in the 60's when they first came out. Not aware of any re release since then. Would be interesting to know where the moulds are now or if they were scrapped! I do remember the kit I built as being a bit basic, but reckon I could do something with the Bugatti now if only I could obtain one. I take your point about where I placed this request, so thanks for the suggestion and I will repeat it there as well.

Cheers, mate. If you get your hands on one, please show the project on the forum. I'd be interested in seeing this project.
