Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Renault RS01 UK 1977 Jabouille 1:18 The turbocharged Renault RS01 made its first competitive appearance at Silverstone in 1977 and although not the most auspicious of debuts, with turbo failures in qualifying and the race, when it worked it hinted at things to come. The cars early unreliability earned it the nickname of the ‘yellow teapot’ from competitors and Spark references this on the box art. Inside we find a typically well finished model with plenty of detail on that exposed turbo engine. Race photos we have show some aluminium shrouds over the turbo itself which are left off so that we can see the parts on the model. There’s plenty of wiring and plumbing there too, all adding up to make a fine miniature of a significant piece of F1 history.
Very well finished mass produced resin built models. Ever improving detailing now incorporating more use of photoetched details for added finesse and with excellent paint finishes. Made in China
