After being active here for a few years now you get into the situation many models have passed already, even when you’re doing mainly French/German cars. It’s not that I can’t show new models but the Renault Clio V6 I’ve shown before.

But this one ain’t a 1/43 like the Universal Hobbies I showed back then: This is a 3" Norev! Pretty rare, don’t think I saw it that much so when I spotted it it was destined to be mine.

I would have preferred a road going car though but then again: I’ve never seen a 3" Clio V6 this good anyway so I’m excited for having it.

The rear has painted taillights but for a 3" that is totally acceptable of course. The roll cage is a nice aspect.

So no need to explain I love it. I think there’s a yellow one as well but that one has chromed wheels so I can do without it. And on that Bomb shell...
