  1. Here's today's work.... rollcage fitted, then shave a bit off each side of the dash, so it slides in between the door cards........ Test fit in bodyshell................
  2. Thanks FAL. for the info. A little progress, the engine complete adding fine tubing as plug leads and 'bluing' the exhaust manifold to show heat from engine. Also added engine to floorpan and small interior items, seats, seatbelt decals (used my own as kit ones are black and wouldn't be seen ) plus handbrake, gear stick fire extinguishers and pedals. Instructions suggest these are to be fitted after the rollcage which is the wrong way round.

    Thanks Brian for more info on this car.
  4. Thanks Gary. Yes I know of Steve Bannister and watch on Sky as many rally programmes that they cover, British Historic, Irish stages with lots of MK2's plus a few MK1's as well. I buy a few kits from an ebay shop run by one of the Millington family that do the Ford engines for historic rallying.

    Thanks guys for your interest and info. I saw every episode of the Man from Uncle but very saw the car.
  6. Thanks Steve Noble. I used the 'Clear' body to build Ken Blocks Hoonigan Escort recently and had the decals left over, so two coats of clear gloss to be sure as they were from 1992, used on the white body of this kit.
  7. The kit............................ it has no decals!
  8. I bought this........................ But resurrected the decals from a ESCI 1992 Ford Escort 'Clear' bodied kit.................... And so far............................

    Thanks Moa. I built the floats up one piece at a time and let each part dry thoroughly., having had a few problems trying to attach all parts at the same time when the glue is still not set. Yes If I'd have seen what the decals were like beforehand I would have cut the letters/numbers away and laid them up individually, as I've had to a few times in the past.

    Thanks Rog. I normally have problems with these struts as I'm a seaplane fan. But I calmly put the pieces on one at a time and when connecting them all up just a little tweak here and there. The outside struts go on after the first set with the floats are mounted and set in place, so no problems for the first time ever! I used Plasti-Kote chrome rattle can, so get a reasonable shine without a gloss coat for the decals to stick to. Yes the postal red & silver decals are very nice and colourful, which I like and perhaps should have put them on this, as being Switzerland must have a few lakes to land on with the mail!
