Thumbs up Corette C5-R Lemans 2004 Transkit -by Scale Production- Kit Review

Hi folks,

as already mentioned in another thread: I got the C5-R 2004 transkit for the 2004 Lemans version:



Here some pics:

resin body, open hood, separate front


best quality resin


new rear wing, cooler, engine parts


decals


etched parts, window surrounding, mesh


new wheels, super brakes -much details-


turned aluminium oil reservoir and shocks; spings for the shocks; screws and nuts for wheels; ribbon for seat belts; air jack valves, .....


The last pic shows so many parts, that it is a must to built the car without engine cover and wheels off.

Hi,

@ corydos63: What do you mean: "since june" ??? Scale Production exists since years and their quality you can compare to Studio 27, (higher than Reji :-)) )

@ GvEman: I donīt know when I will start this kit, but a friend of mine -an excellent modeler- starts building it in these days. I hope I can post some of his pics to see, how the transkit works

@ aeroace and Petrick: Look at my pics and compare it f.e. with the Renaissance transkit for the Peugeot 205 Turbo 16 evo 2 (No. 24/205) -I possess this transkit, too - ( http://www.mafma.com/liste.php?Marqu...otsclef=tk24_2)
for 61 Euro - less parts, no body - anybody who say the price is too high????

Hi corydos63,

did you see: in the building plan for the Red Bull Modena transkit you find a remark, that the wheels and the frontspoiler are original items of Renaissance. Scale Production bought them and just filled them in the transkit parts bag.

Somehow strage: You never hear such critics from people buying Renaissance.

A few month ago I ordered the Renaissance Ferrai 360 transkit with the complete body. This was so wrapped that I had to give it back to get a new one. This second body was wrapped again and I had to order a third one to get moderate quality.

Since 2 weeks I have a new computer and must search the photo of the wrapped body. If I find it I will post it here.
