It's been a while since I've been on the site so it was good to see what people have been up to!
This is my take on a Mk2 Escort, inspired by the MST Mk2 and Frank Kelly's 'Baby Blue' Grp 4 Escort.
This was my first experience of a Lexan body so it's been a steep learning curve and there's a few things that I'll do better next time.
It's sitting on a very lovely M-08 chassis.
It's got quite a few additions to make it look as 'scale' as I could get it. Most important were the deep dish Minilite wheels, which are actually Scale Dynamics Watanabes with Yokomo drift tyres. They're a bit large at 16' rather than the 13s that it should have, but I haven't found anything closer so far.
Got some PIT Shimizu tyres to go on the M-08 wheels so I can actually drive it outside without trashing the drift tyres. The wheels aren't really the look I was going for but with a bit of body adjustment and some slightly wider Hexs they look ok.
