Olivier Renault R8 Gordini from Eaglemoss

Postby 27flight » Tue Apr 05, 2016 10:12 am

Here is a new partworks, the iconic (for french) Renault R8 Gordini. The model from eaglemoss is successful and the first issues have to be reedited. The quality is quite good, and many people take parts from the Alpine Berlinette (Wheels, lights...) to do a rallye version.

Here are the 3 first issues :

What do you think of this one Oliver?
I have made the first 4 issues and am impressed with the quality so far. Rubber brake hoses and light lenses in particular.
But I don't think the pocket money will stretch for this one as well.

funny you should say that alan, the light lenses in particular are a pretty controversial part with a lot of discussions and modifications going on in france...
also on a 1:8 scale model the hood and (later on) bonnet air intakes are actually only painted indentations - apparently due to problems in production they are not real slots...

Thanks, I didn't realise that. I thought the lenses very really good. But the future issues you raise make me feel a bit better about not being able to get this one!

The quality is quite good, much more than the Shelby (made by Eligor), The R8 like the Alpine and the Citroën TA 1937 is made by Ixo
It's just a little under the Countach from Model space (De Agostini)

The modifications on the engine will be simple.
But many people want to turn it into a race car

...and because it's an "almost" ordinary car I used to drive back in the 80ies, it will probably have me sell the parts for the renault alpine by eaglemoss...
now that I already have my 2cv charleston and ds21, the gordini would be lovely to go along them...

Hello,

Most of the time, it's Tamiya in spray (like the exhaust, it was silver originaly) or bucket for the details.

But for the R8 Gordini, you will see that I have paint the chassis in blue, I bought a spray of Renault 418 (the real reference), but I'm not very satisfied with this color (Too grey)
So tomorrow I will repeint it with something realy strange, on a french forum someone tried a spray paint from a DIY store and the color perfectly match (Luxens), furthermore it's dry in half an hour and it doesn't need varnish.
