Here is my latest build, the Ford Escort Mark 2 on the MF-01X chassis.

I have used some very cheap oil filled shocks for this one - time will tell how well they perform but they do look the part!

Enjoyment factor of the build was 10/10 - if you love the real car you will love building this model.

An authentic looking back end, and a nicely detailed front end, in a very attractive scheme that Hannu Mikola drove in the 70's.

There are some decals missing from the real car - Maybe Tamiya couldn't get permission to use them.

Fully ball-raced and will be driven on occasion. I will look for some dusty area to drive it on and film it for my YT channel.
