Dug the kit out today. Will get this started tomorrow even if I have to phone in drunk. Don't know whether to go OOB or add aftermarket decals. Decision will be made on the fly. Photo's of the kit contents:

Ian,

it's the 03 mould with the updated 05 bumpers included in the box instead. I've made a start eventually and will post some photo's later.

Nice...........I hope to do a friends car, he bought this many years ago as someones abandoned project, a bodyshell and several boxes of bits, this was taken a couple of years ago, spec control on the pendragon, Lowther stages, a dry day, semi slick tyres and an unexpected shower. Talk about being in the right place at the right time for a photo

Hey Guys,

Looking at these pics is really giving me idea's maybe even doing some sort of kit of an Escort, people are always asking me for them, Ian, sorry to hear about the small damage to the scooby and Eric the Vette body is done by Mini Exotics I'll try and put a pic up tomorrow.

Well I decided to do a bit today on my half day off work. Got the interior painted and started. Everything else got primed.

Seats painted and powdered to give the suede effect. Dash will eventually get the same treatment.

Apologies for the pants photo's, taking them on the mobile on the run. Seeing as the time is ticking on the interior is getting minor touches only and will probably be stripped at a later date and re-done. If we had a bit more time this baby would have the whole bag of tricks thrown at it.

I think there's a substantial market out there for a good 1/24 Mk 1 Steve!! I've even resorted to buying a (whisper it !) diecast to modify!!

Shiloh, much as I'm envious of your sister's bf's car, I'd kill for Ian's mates x-packed RS - that's just stunning !! (as is the photo - was the car still as nice after the pic??!!) How much do I wish I still had one of the dozen or so MK1 & 2's I went through back in the day.......

Looking forward to your progress on the Focus!

Keef

Don't worry Ian. Think we all agree that the only way to drive a MK2 is out the side window. I'd kill for a decent MK2 kit as there are quite a few cars I'd like to do and it seems the RoG kit is getting harder to get.

Well looks like I might miss the deadline on this. I've been shipped to Longbenton to work and won't be home till bout midnight tonite. The Focus was finished Tuesday night and just needs pics taken, still not bad for a build that only took 23 days.

Well folks I'm just in after a pleasing delay at the airport :shithappens: . Following Erik's advice I'll post these anywho and the build judges can choose whether or not to let me play :unsure:. Nice little Hasegawa kit that goes together with few problems. Steve just needs to get more in now.

I think just for the effort of taking photos and posting at that rediculous time of the morning you should be included for judging, great model BTW

regards Ian

:ditto: ....and I haven't seen the chequered flag drop yet anyway??!!

Really good looking Focus there, with a very nice, different colour scheme too!

Great build!! :speak_cool:

The builds are all included for the judging and once I have the votes I will "do the bizz" I'm glad people took part and had some fun great stuff :speak_cool:

Best wishes Steve

Thanks Erik. Given a lot more time there's a lot of stuff I would change. It really needs another clear coat and a good polish, the interior needs a lot of work as the decals were used for it all. The suspension needs stripped and sorted, the list goes on really. I'll save all that for the S12 Scooby I'm planning after I finish the 98 and 99 versions I'm doing at the minute.
