RENAISSANCE, FRANCE

Available from; www.grandprixmodels.com

Various items from Renaissance have hit the New Releases desk recently, here's a run down of what's new on the market. Ducati Desmosedici GP3 D'Antin 2004 (MTK12/005) Designed for the Heller kit of the Ducati Desmosedici (80912) this decal sheet replicates the livery run by the satellite D 'Antin team during the 2004 season.The nicely printed sheet includes decals for both Hodgson and Xaus' machines in both early and mid-season schemes. Konica-Minolta Tamada Honda RC211V '05Transkit (MTK12/006) An extensive transkit here for theTamiya Honda RC211V (14097). As well as the colourful decal sheet to replicate the blue and white livery, there is a full set of resin bodywork including mudguards and all panels to replicate the modifications to the '05 season bike. Honda RC211V 2005 Detail Set (MTK12/008) Just as with the Renaissance detail set for the Yamaha M1 that we showed you previously inTMMI, the RC211V set is an amazingly concise production. Giving you three photo-etched frets with a massive amount of parts, from brake discs to clutch assemblies through to the chain and adjusters it is very complete.Throw into the mix the resin parts such as the airbox (absent from theTamiya kit) and the revised engine covers amongst other parts and, as with Renaissances production for the Yamaha, it is the most concise and complete detail set on the market for the RC211V. Porsche 911 Carrera RS No 62 Konrad Le Mans 93 (TK24/194) It wasn't long after Tamiya announced their release of their 911 Turbo kit that Renaissance had this transkit available. Replicating the car driven by Konrad, Hermann and Harada at Le Mans in 1993.it includes a new resin rear wing, wheels and mirrors along with slick tyres. A nicely printed decal sheet is also provided with black border edgings to separate the colour changes on what may prove to be a tricky masking job on the bodywork. Ferrari 330 P4 LM67 (TK24/210)

More of a detail set than a transkit, it gives you the correct dashboard, lower front valence and seats for the 67 model cast in beige resin along with two photo-etch frets. One fret has the normal details expected such as body catches, steering wheel centre, pedals and fillers but it also adds some panels to further enhance the interior. The second fret includes the elements of the coil type radiator which when assembled is a vast improvement on the kit stock part.

Citroen Xsara WRC - Stohl Monte Carlo 2005 (TK24/224)

The OMV privateer Citroen Xsara gained some good results in '05, taking a podium placing in one event.Thanks to Renaissance, you can now convert Hellers kit thanks to this transkit Includes full decal sheet, including all the blue and green colouring in the scheme provided as decals.The transkit also gives you the correct rear win, GPS pod and mirrors for the '05 season.

Ford Focus Bumpers 04/05 (TK24/232)

This transkit comprises of a pair of resin cast bumpers to convert the Hasegawa Ford Focus WRC '03 kit Nicely cast in crème coloured resin, after a small amount of clean-up should fit the kit body without issue.
