    RE: Ford Escort MK2 1/5

    You are stalking me, Claude

    Thank you, but i have found the Lombard-numberplates already and have them on my computer soon to be printed out as i am waiting for the sheets for making the decals to arrive. But i will be in touch if i run into any problems!

    Anthoop: i think it will be even harder for me to paint those stripes, i really don't fancy painting stripes and i am not into airbrush-stuff. So i am stucked with decals

    RE: Ford Escort MK2 1/5

    Wowsa! That 1/5 scale looks great!
    Just started to wok on my 1/10 scale recently as well!
    Colors are not the correct shades, but I just used what I had laying around.
    Oh an the body was painted previously so this new paint is on the outside!

    RE: Ford Escort MK2 1/5

    Hey thanks! I actually had one of these as first car before I moved to the US! But it was the 4door sedan, a 1978 model I believe!
    So I got a real soft spot for them....also got a weakness for the mark 3 Capri...! Ha

    Where did you live before moving to US? Some years ago i had a Escort RS2000, not original though. So the same soft spot here for them! I have also a thread here about a 1/5 scale Capri mk 1

    I have started to install and make lights for the body now. The headlights are reflectors from torchlights glued to the body. The extralights are heavily modified lighthouses from Baja, installed with reflectors and a 10 mm LED in each of them. I really like how they turned out

    Some more work done! I have tucked the front spoiler under the body instead of having it on the outside, looks much cleaner now. I've done the same at the rear of the car. I have also made door "mirrors", of course made from Ikea bread chopping board.

    Did a little mock up of the front just to see how it looks, and i like what i see

    That must have been a nice reminder, i would love to see more of them too but it is not the time for them this time of year. Most of them are in their hibernation now
