Renault FR1 Scale - 1:43

Renault introduced this bus model with several innovation for it’s body construction.

To begin with, it made use of two glass-fibre reinforced polyester sheets i.e. sheet moulding composite (also known as SMC) for better mechanical strength. As a filler material between the two sheets, Bakelite was used. Even painting was done using cataphoresis* process so as to increase corrosion resistance.

With a 9.8 litre, 6-cylinder turbo diesel engine, the Renault FR1 buses were produced during the years 1983-1996. The bus model was so popular that several were produced by Renault’s USA subsidiary Mack Trucks in 1985.
