  3. Belkits 1/24 Ford Escort RS1600 This kit was brought back from Japan a couple of weeks ago by a good friend of mine. The other three kits I’m making at the moment have been put on hold until this one’s done. I’ve owned three Escort MkIs over many years which can be curse and a blessing when it comes to being so familiar with the real thing. I'll just give a brief intro until I can find the camera lead to download some pics and will continue the commentary at the same time. The box is full: the body shell is packed in its own carton with the rest of the space filled by four sprues many of which have runners set at an angle to allow (presumably) the moulding and subsequent protection of the parts. A cursory glance through the instructions reveals cad line drawings that aren’t the clearest - very thin lines with no variation in thickness as well as some ‘contours’ or ‘mesh’ lines, and tinted all over with a flat tone. It can be difficult to see if the drawings are showing the inside or outside. Several drawings are doubled up, for example the interior ‘cradle’ showing both right hand drive and left hand drive versions. These are annotated with arrows and instructions to fill relevant holes with a caption stating ‘This kit!!!’. (The ‘cradle’ has holes for such things as a footrest that need filling in the relevant place.) One diagram is wrongly captioned - the fixing points of the wipers. Decal placement is shown by colour photographs that look as though they’ve been cut out by a meat-cleaving butcher with bad eyesight. I launched into the kit starting with the front radiator grill simply because the headlamp void on the body didn’t look quite right on the pre-launch photos I’d seen, but all seems well. This is neatly designed with a piece of etch to represent the grill that sits over a recess that I guess should be painted black. The radiator grills have been chromed which isn’t strictly correct as these were made of pressed aluminium. I did some modifications to my example and left it in a bath of bleach overnight. I got up next morning to check on it and wash off the bleach (that had no effect) and lost it down the plughole - how many of you can claim to be undoing p-traps and lifting manhole covers at 5.30am? I’ve got another kit on order to do a square light version anyway . . . Nick
  4. Well she's finished save for a couple of small details. WIP here: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234987216-ford-escort-rs-cosworth-group-a-rally/ Kit was Tamiya's Michelin Pilot version with Shunko decals to build the Monte Carlo 1993 car. Slight troubles with the decals mainly on the bumper corners but from a distance it looks good. Will weather in the future when those skills have been honed a bit more. Anywho pics Ahoy: Thanks for looking and to those that have followed the build. As always comments are always welcome lol TTFN Ashley.
  5. So I'm back again with a more focused modelling interest this time so hopefully no more stalled builds haha. Right onwards we go. The kit is as the title suggests: I got this as part of a large collection I brought earlier this year. The kit included thus: yes that is a Riko tube of glue lol and a renaissance WRC transkit for Didier Auriol's 1999 car. The reason for the transkit is as follows: However though I would love to build a WRC spec escort, I don't find Auriol's livery exciting and would much prefer either of the Factory one's. So I decided to treat this elderly kit to a shiny new decals sheet courtesy of Shunko Models: So onto the building process. Firstly I am prepping the body shell for painting and decaling whilst I finish another kit. This is how the body looks before priming, with all the parts attached: The Whaletail spoiler is only held on with bluetac to allow the central support to be glued in place. Of interest is that the no.6 car of Francois Delecour has only one sideview mirror whereas Miki Biasion's no.2 car had both mirrors. Can you tell which I'm building haha. I'm building the Monte Carlo 1993 car as I have a few others to build from this event. (Celica and Lancer, if I could find decals to make Sainz's Delta it would complete the set lol) I have also prepared all the parts that will end up white, like the chassis and rollcage etc. Hopefully progress wont be too slow lol TTFN
