Looks great :)

 

The MK1 Escort and MK1 Capri shared some engines and that`s about it,they are complete opposite bodystyles.

Thanks Ken, it's been wet sanded with 3000 grit and polished with tamiya's 3 step compound.

Your supra is looking great, If only we were close by, i would love to have a photo shoot of the cars together

Great conversion - still a missing gap in plastic kits - I will try to convert Fabbri/Quattroruote's 1/24 Escort Mk1 to a rally version similar to yours.

Hey man, very nice build, quality scratch build skills.

 

Question..what type of puddy or modeling substance did you use for the wheel flares?

That is one cool ride, just saw one of these on T.V. the other day. I wish they had sold that Escort here in the states!
