Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Renault Fregate Ondine Ghia 1953 The Ghia styled Ondine convertible was first shown at the 1953 Paris Motor Show and three fibreglass-bodied replicas were built and used by Renault for promotional purposes. The cars were used to head the Tour de France promotional caravan and the example modelled here was also photographed with Edith Piaf in period. The shape of the car looks very good and the smaller detailing is delicately done with nice touches including tinted sun visors. The fine metallic green colour is a little dark when compared with photos of the restored car but the general finish is good.
Beautifully cast, very simple resin kits and hand-built models. Kits include some white metal parts, minimal photo-etch and basic but useful instructions. Some subjects slightly let down by the rather crude cast wheels. Built models generally well built. Made in France.
