Renault 20 TS

Comments

Compared to other models of the brand, this one is treated with a somewhat loose scale. In particular, the wheels are too wide and, consequently, the rear track is too narrow. Nevertheless, the finesse is present (roof pillars for example).

The headlights are inserted. The other lights are painted. On the tailgate, the Renault 20 TS marking on the left and the 2 litres marking on the right can be read with a magnifying glass. The windscreen and rear window are flush, but the side windows are not, making the roof pillars appear thicker than they really are. The wipers are moulded with the windscreen and painted black.

The body and chassis are held together by a cylindrical pin at the front and a sliding flat pin showing the number plate at the rear.See pictures of the disassembled car, front,Renault 20 disassembled, front view rear.Renault 20 disassembled, rear view

The interior is light grey, with black dashboard and steering wheel. Door linings are not shown.
