Ford Escort Mk1 (x2)


Recommended Posts

I haven't posted for awhile due to my parents both being ill not leaving a lot of time for modelling but but I've made a start on these two. The first one will be a street version:-  

Wheels are panasports with stretchwall tyres (both from Scale Production.
For the second one I wanted stock wheelarches so the bubble arches have been hacked off and the stock arches built up from plastic sheet - I can see a lot of filling & sanding in the near future !. 

I'll post more progress as I make it but it may be slow.
Thanks for looking and sorry for the poor pics

Looking forward to both, but especially the standard body version, it would look great as an RS 2000, if you could get decals for it, I'd even be happy to see a basic 1100cc Mk1

Keep it up Andy.

Thanks Shay, Renaissance are coming out with a decal set to replicate the F&F6 car so I may get a set but I'm not sure if it will work with the standard arches. Scale Production are doing a resin engine bay with a choice of BDA or Lotus engine. This could get expensive !

Looking good Andy, been looking for a Mk1 myself but I'm not paying £50 !!  Love that wheel n tyre combo, looks like my dream Mk1 coming together, just needs a cage and mexico stripes ! !

Thanks, I'm hoping somebody in the aftermarket comes up with the Mexico stripes.  Renaissance are doing a set to replicate the F&F6 car. Quick search of ebay uk iand the best price I can find is £37.00 incl postage.   

Cheers

Andy

Thanks for the interest guys, I've made a bit of progress on the stock wheel arch version, slow work as there's lots of filling & sanding involved. Still very rough and ready but I'm fairly satisfied with them.

Also got the Scale Production transkit in the post - I'll just be using the engine bay as Ill be using the Lotus Twin cam engine from the Tamiya Lotus Europa.

That looks very good with those stock wheel openings! That's the way they should have done it already at Belkits I think. Very nice work with that conversion, if there was a reasonable priced resin copy of one of those I'd pick one up. That looks so much better than the rally version.
