VOLVO V70 R from 1999 - Development story and facts
Development of the Volvo V70 R first generation 1 18 scale model replica by DNA Collectibles.
Thanks again to our beloved Volvo fans' community, we could start this development with high confidence in respect of fidelity and details. Fun fact is that after having approved the 3D rendering in all aspects, we found out that the real car we used as a principal source of information, was in fact equipped with a modern retrofitted front grille. Hopefully we did not realize it after the production but still only on the first prototype! We then needed to rework this part and make a complete check of the other parts, which could have been not original. Have a look to all the pictures and video, but please bear in mind that the 3D and grey prototype (called "Master" in the manufacturing process) are with the wrong grille.
On the Master's pictures, you can see lots of missing elements, such as the windows, roof, grilles, glasses on headlights and rear lights. Also all the decoration details, such as the dashboard instrument clusters, radio buttons, logos and labels will be added during the next decoration step.
