I am doing a Ford Fiesta of the Paraguayan driver Augusto Bestard, which I had the pleasure of seeing in person in Erechim, in the year 2015. He competed for the South American stage of that year. This is the car: He is a Ford Fiesta R5, category below the WRC. I'm going to use a Fiesta WRC from Belkits, it's not the same car because WRCs are different from the R5 in some aspects of the body, but since I live in Brazil, buying a transkit is practically the price of a new kit (and the Two together gets really heavy on price), so sadly he'd been left with those differences. The belkits kit comes with asphalt wheels, so for this I'm going to use the wheels of the Citroen Xsara WRC from Heller, making some small adjustments to fit. It will look like this: Well, paint did all through masks, the decals will be customized, printed by a supplier here from Brazil. First layer was white throughout the car, then masks to red, and finally the black color, below some photos of the process: thanks!!!
Hi again, Another finished box - seem to be on a roll. Picked this up as a change instead of all the aircraft in the stash. Only my second kit after 40 odd years away. Quite a nice little kit really. Enjoyed putting it together, even the decals which I wasn;t looking forwards to went on fine. Only real issue I had was the glazing, a) cos its an appaulling fit - for anyone else doing this I'd suggest the side glass is cut into 3 parts which I think would then go in nice and easily with PVA - its the size thats the issue and trying to fit 3 holes at once, and the Klear final coat has made a right mess and blurred the whole lot! Grrrr...
Pics by Ian (aka Rallychef) taken at the Ford Greystoke Forest test track. An interesting point the interior has been left grey, as opposed to white in previous cars (less pigment in grey paint.....an overall weight saving of over 5 kilos). I guess all weight does matter in these cars! Julien
