That's all Decalcas has released so far (on Facebook).   Their website is still under development.

Never seen that kit before Brandon so I can't say.  Both kits represent the same car however.  Nice score by the way.

Is the body different from the Otaki 2600?  Oops, the Otaki is an RS3600, its early yet.

The Otaki/Sunny/Academy/Minicraft kit I'm familiar with is a RS3100 Gr. 4

I think my resin may be based on the Academy kit? Looks to be some similarity in the side windows

Yes, but the amt kit is a Mk2 Capri with a hatchback, so it's a different bodyshell. It's also debatable if the Academy kit is actually an RS 2600 with a duck tail spoiler.

I wasn't aware of their rally history either Shay.  I know Capris competed in touring cars.

J.C., I sure like that Otaki Capri RS3100 you showed the pic of. The front fenders look a bit different than the Minicraft version. Maybe just the image, but it does look slightly different.

Pretty hard to find an original one these days.  Well - except for yesterday. :D

The Capri obviously has a modified V6 JC, but I've never seen an RS 2600 ( Cologne German V6) or an RS 3100 { Essex English V6) without twin headlights,it must be a very early pre production version.

Cool news, a mk1 Capri is very much a wanted kit. I did build a 1:24 Capri some years ago, made by Academy I think.
I never took pictures of it when after it ws done but these where from the building process:

And some when it was nearly done:

I had an accident with it after I cleared it and was never happy with the results after that. It was sitting to close to a warm lightbulb on my desk and the roof started to melt. You can see windows don't fit properly anymore.
A very simple kit and according to experts the body is to big for 1:24, more like 1:22 or something like that.

I heard a rumor that the Decalcas one is based on the Welly diecast.

The Welly Capri is labeled as a 1969 Capri.

I would be very surprised if a company's first resin kit offering would be based on an existing die-cast model.
