    Welcome from Dublin Richard.

    Good to see the Transit back again.
  3. dublin boy added a post in a topic Belkits Ford Escort Mk1   

    They are both 1/24th scale, there's really not much difference between the Mk1 and Mk2 mechanically, so you can have an (incorrect...) BDA in your MK1 if it can be kit bashed without too much trouble using the kits JC has shown above.
    Trouble is, they're hard to get hold of now and you'd need a Tamiya Lotus Europa for a correct engine which would need a rwd gearbox..
    I'll just build it out of box when I eventually get one. Can't wait!!

    And you can make an RS 2000 with an amt Pinto 2 litre engine.

    Soon...I think they're waiting on the other decals to be approved, so we can build both versions.

    Looks great, love the old stick on heated rear screen!
     
    There's a Roger Clark decalled version coming too.

    The Revell Golf might be a starting point for Euro bumpers?

    Nice models Mark.

    Hmmm.
     
    So much for open wheels and an open cockpit. That's not F1.

    Sorry to hear about your Mother Geoff.
    Skype me if you want to chat.
     
  14. dublin boy added a post in a topic Air Trax Ford Anglia   

    Geoff I think we saw an Airtrax Mk 1 Lotus Cortina at Telford that time a few years ago using the Esci/Revell Mk2 Escort as a donor.
    Any idea if it would fit the Anglia with a bit of shortening of the wheelbase?
  15. dublin boy added a post in a topic Well done Lewis Hamilton!   

    I'd line them all up in Golf GTi's or some other road car once a year for a full 2 hour race and see how they get on....
     
    In the distant past they used to drive lots of different stuff like F2 and tin tops, Jim Clark in a mk1 Lotus Cortina for example. Last one I remember was most of the F1 squad racing Mercedes 190E Cosworths, which Senna won from Prost. The cream always rises to the top.
