1983 Escort XR3i (UK version)


Recommended Posts

This is a replica of an old daily driver bought new by me in 1983, using the Revell kit as a base.  My car had rare (cough) wheeltrims rather than the usual 4-hole alloy wheels, as per the attached photo of a similar car.  I pirated some similar pepperpot wheels from the Tamiya Sierra.  The right hand dash is a blend of AMT and the kit's LHD unit, I removed the molded in LHD wipers and used the RHD versions from the Sierra kit.  Paint is Tamiya Bright Red, the interior is two shades of grey with red piping made from plug wires.  I found some UK licence plates online, they use self adhesive stickers for the letters which were challenging to apply but add a touch of realism.  Thanks for looking.
