1/24 Belkit Ford escort Rs1600 Mk1 - 1973 RAC rally Winner.
« on: September 22, 2016, 02:01:05 PM »
I knew that I should not have built the 52 Chevy.
I am now working on this kit.
It was driven By Timo Makinen, so it is left hand drive, not right as the original.

Very nice it is too - well so far.
I have been undercoating and painting all the bits, its quite time consuming.
Here is the underneath.
Here are the seats with seat belts and etched brass bits.

Painting in progress.

Body shell painted.
I mixed my own "Ford Olympic Blue". I used Tamiya blue, white and their clear. Here is the result after undercoat, several coats of the mix and rubbing down. I may need to lighten the mix a little. It will now have a coat of Johnsons Klear before the decals transfers are applied.

The underside is almost complete, yes, the wheels turn left/right but not around.

Yes, lots of chrome and transfers.
Just about finished, just the odd bit to touch up now.

Splendid that is.   
      Are we now going to be treated to a fleet/squadron/shoal/flock/herd of sports cars?

Sorry to disagree with you Kevin but I think he is going Zoooom Zooooom Zoooom - especially with the speed he makes his models.

Hi Msea,

Yep, I think you're right on that one. I forgot Zak's age, the youngest 64 year old I know.

Booom Booom!  No Sorry that was Basil Brush, should have been Zoom, Zoom!!
