I am indeed a member of this forum. Stunning build Steve 

Sorry about that Richie. There are so many sites these days and I haven't been very active on here for quite a while 😉

 

An easy to use photo hosting site has got me back in the swing, lol

 

Atb, Steve.

Nice to see a normal road car version of this car instead of all the rally cars. Lovely model build and well finished.

Reminds me of the bog standard Mk1 that I had way back. Airfix did a bog standard  one in 1/32nd scale.

@triumphfan I'm building the Belkits Escort and the windows sit too low inside the bodyshell , even though they clip into place firmly. Just wondered how you faired with yours ? 

Gary .

Hi Gary, I found the same problem, in the end I decided to separate the front rear and side windows to get a good fit. Eventually ended up trimming them all individually. 

It did make them difficult to fit, especially the door glass, but taking it one by one and securing with Gators Grip (thin type) did the trick.

If I ever do another, I would replace the side windows with clear sheet. The rear side windows actually seem to have a double rubber seal. It looks like Belkits moulded it on the body and the glass part, this makes the rear window appear a tad small, at least, that how it looks to me.

Hope this helps.

 

Atb, Steve.

Thanks Steve . Seems we have experienced the same problems . I have cut the side windows from the main frame and hopefully they will fit , even though the glue area is very slim . Photos are in the WIP section BTW.
