Restored GS..... sort of!

Post by wainy »

Just thought I'd share pics of the results of a "small scale" restoration project.... 1:43 to be exact!

This was put together using two scrap Solido GS's bought from ebay a while back and put together as a GSX, complete with Jaune Helianthe body colour. My Dad's first GS in 1977 was a GSX exactly like this.... HLV 133P..... I didn't replicate the rust though....

Just hope that I can post pics of completed GSA X1 in 1:1 scale before next summer......... :wink:

Well done but it appears that the paint finish is suffering from 'Orange peel' :lol:

Hmmmm.... photos aren't that kind are they? They're much bigger than the real thing though and it looks OK in the flesh. Was done with an aerosol so a bit difficult to control at a small scale.... oh no, I'm blaming my tools..... bad workman etc..... :wink:

What! No before pictures? :lol:

I came across a fantastic 1:43 model of a GS estate in orange with matching orange interior. It was a really good model and have seen a real GS just like it, not often you get orange with an orange interior.

I have just bought a really nice Norev Renault 4 Fourgonnette in 1:18 this morning, not seen that one before. My collection is growing fast :lol:

Next project (at this scale....) is a plastic Norev Ami 8 which is missing a wheel (doesn't stand on 3 wheels like a GS would :wink: ) and headlight......

Growing collection here too.....
