Czech driver Martin Prokop, made his WRC debut at the age of 23, in the 2005 Monte Carlo Rally, competing in the Junior category and piloting a Suzuki Ignis S1600. He would finish in 9th place in the JWRC championship, come years end. The following year he switched to a Citroen C2 S1600 and gained his maiden JWRC rally victory, at the Spanish Rally Catalunya.

Still competing in the Junior class, Prokop would win Rally Deutschland and the Tour De Corse, in 2007 and finished 3rd in the championship standings. In 2008 he began contesting both the JWRC and PWRC (Production World Rally Championship). The following year, he secured the Junior championship and finished 2nd in the Production class.

2010 would see Prokop switch to the new Super 2000 WRC championship, driving a Fiesta S2000 for the Czech Ford National Team. He became the first S2000 driver to win a special stage of a WRC event, on SS16 of Rally Sweden. He continued in the S2000 class, until finally making the switch to the senior WRC category in November 2011, when he entered Rally GB, using a Fiesta RS WRC.

His first full WRC season (2012) would end with 9th place in the championship standings. This year, he is still in a Fiesta RS WRC, driving for the Jipocar Czech National Team and is currently sitting in 9th spot in the championship.

Decal set No 195 from Reji Model features the Fiesta S2000, in which Martin Prokop took 6th place at the 2011 Rally Deutschland. The sheet is designed to be used in conjunction with Belkits Fiesta S2000 model (BEL002).

The paint finish required for this car is going to be quite labour intensive, requiring some very careful masking to ensure everything lines up straight and symmetrical. The base colour is gloss white and then on top of this, there are large blocks of red down the flanks, on the roof and the centre of the bonnet. The rear of the car is largely blue, along with the lower edge of the front spoiler. Finally, we also have strips of gold running from the edge of the bonnet, up the “A-Pillars” and along the roofs edge, as well as additional gold bands which angle up the sides, onto the doors.

Once that task is completed, your attention can turn to applying the decals. Reji supply everything needed, on one sheet, with a small correction sheet for 2 sponsor badges which go on the roof. Once again, the quality of the decals is excellent. The images are sharp and clear, with bold colours. The registry is spot on and the sponsorship logos all appear very authentic to the originals. Everything is printed on very fine and glossy carrier film.

Conclusion

Due to the complexity of the paint job required, perhaps this is one for the more advanced Rally modellers among us. On the other hand, we only advance ourselves through experience, so if you feel confident enough to try it out, I’d say go for it. Take your time and with some careful masking and painting, you’ll end up with a very colourful car to add to the collection.

I can’t speak well enough of the decals themselves. They are simply another very high quality product from Reji Model.
