Really like WRC cars, and this one is very nicely done. Maybe TOO clean!

Thanks Rusty. It might look clean and tidy but they only washed the body after the last stage, but they left the underside mucky!

Great result Pat. With the "new" Italeri release of the Escort in Rothman's ("Racing" actually) livery, I might be tempted to go for one of those myself...

Really nice work, Pat.

I have just finished the same kit as a replica of a  famous Australian car from the early 80's. I converted it to RHD, reset the suspension stance (raised and extra castor - quite difficult for me), used the correct wheels and tyres and driving lights, then added figures, belts and homemade decals and sat it on a typical Australian Forest Stage.

Now the wipers are the right way up for a right hand drive car!

It looks great, well done David. We see here in the UK a lot of NEW MK2's on our rally TV programmes as in Ireland (EIRE) they still run them in the historic category. Plus there are folks who make spare shells and chassis. I had the problem  when I started mine, not being able to decide whether to go the box-art or this way or copy one of the Irish cars!

Thanks Tommy124.  Yes I'd seen the press release that they were bringing that one out. Interesting that their (Rothmans) Rally build HQ was just up the road from here!
