My wife is a keen supporter of my tamiya addiction and likes to help out where she can. As a result (and with a little input from me) she gave me this beautiful Renault for Xmas. It came via ebay and had modern electrics fitted but doesn't appear to have been used or if it has then very lightly. I've only had to give it a light restoration which includes removing the modern radio gear, disassembling and cleaning the chassis, replacing the cracked steering knuckles and adding a few cosmetic touches to the body. I'm really happy to have this, not just because it's in such great condition but because it completes the set of F2 cars (see the last pics). On the lookout for a pair of mirrors, speed controller and a pair of servo mounting plates if anyone can help out.





Love the yellow Scratch free Need a speedo Finally the full set What a line up

Lovely collection of F2s, all of them look in good condition. My fave is the March BMW, hope to get one of these little rarities someday.

Thanks Dirt-540. I think my fave would be the Honda F2 not only for it's rarity but because of it's detail. Good luck with your search.
