I've just been to the local model shop to try and treat myself to a little model of a Clio mk2(pref 182 pre pref trophy). The chap there said they did none, so went to another one the same answer. Anyone bought one or have seen one forsale could you let me know the shop or maker of the model.
Not too worried about the scale.

Try your local freindly Renault dealer.

They usually have them in display somewhere.

You can also order them from the Renaultsport merchandise brochure :D

No Trophy models yet though, even through Renault, hope someone does eventually make one, I want one badly :lol:

There's actually quite a few on eBay. Can't say I've heard of Universal hobbies mind, but this bod seems to have good feedback.

Expect a series of random posts like this from me today, whilst I'm being paid to go on the boards and look out of the window at falling snow. Wow, a Punto sporting just narrowly avoided the wall coming into the car park, guess there's some ice out there now too...

I got a model 172 when I had one of those, but wasn't able to get an Arctic Blue 182, and obviously don't have a Trophy one. Shame as I'm sad like that and would love one of each.

Had any issues with that model Lee?

I had to take mine back to toys 'r us to have the strut modification done :lol:

It also had the strut mod done, as well as a new exhaust after a few k miles. lol

Oh and the headlamp washer jet lost a ball.

I'd get the silver enamel paint out and apply the silvervision effect to those indicator lenses...

:) Bet it squeaks too.

OMG, I did a bit of Googling for universal models, there are more versions than you can shake a stick at, especially the vee.

They oddly produce huge numbers of models of farm machinery too :shock:
