here are 3 more capri fox bodys

   one is regular body with the  front rs airdam  borrowed from mustang kits ( phonetian yellow)

 the  dark brown "rs" is going to  be a  v-8 "rs" capri I modded the  roof with a  t-bar from the mpc mustang kits

 the last is  a regular box stock style build that I may add a spoiler to, the  fox bodys look too plain with  nothing on the  hatch very  strange actually I think

 

the brown rs is  "root beer"  one coat laquer

 the light yellow is model master "ford" phonecian yellow"

Very cool. Fox body Capris are one of my all time favorite cars. I used to have an 82 White lightning edition back in the late 80`s to early 90`s. 302 and a 4 speed with the TRX Suspension package. Had a Holley hi rise with a 650 carb and headers. I`d like another one one day.

the black and   maroon cars are  "crimson cat" and  "black cat"  versions  I am  also planning a  "white lightning" version as well       if you happen to have any photos of your  old  car it  may  be  very  helpful for  my  "cat" builds.....  especially with the  gold  striping i'm  just  kinda  on a  whim with them right  now  havn't  found many  rear  views of the  cars  at all to  see where the   stripes  go.......

I love the 5.0 capris, been looking for a model kit for a while and have had no luck. Looks like your foxbody collection is pretty big, very cool.

But the fenders are way wrong. I have 3 1:1s. 84 5.0 t top RS. 85 5.0 t top RS and a 85 5.0 solid roof GS that has a really neat background.

Very true, they have the capri flared fender with the mustang style fender opening flares. Still would like a model of one eventually.
