There aren't many Renault's I like, but this is one of them, I fell in love with the 5 Turbo the first time I saw one...

Looking forward to seeing this one Sir...

Hi Al,

May I ask, do the Tamiya paints smell much, I have only used Vallejo Air paint with my airbrush and there isn't really any smell, plus, they're really easy to use...

Thank you...

Andy...

Andy.... the Tamiya bottle paints don't have a high smell to them, either brushing or air brushing.

Very easy to work with too. I thin them with cellulose thinners at about 60:40

No engine, you stick your feet out the bottom and run.
