Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Renault 5 Turbo IMSA 1977 #5 JPS kits are usually very simple, kerbside affairs but occasionally they offer us something a little more. With open driverís door and tailgate, this kit reveals a fair level of cockpit and engine detail. Most of this is moulded in so will be fiddly to detail paint, but itís a good looking subject and worth the effort. Patrick Jacquemart started five IMSA GTU races in the car, finishing third on two occasions. He was killed whilst testing the machine at Mid-Ohio and his legacy is that his death triggered the development of the HANS device now widely used in top flight racing.
Simple to build, very well cast and painted resin kits ideal for the first time builder. Great variety of subjects to choose from. Made in France.
