wreckers, I'm not entirely sure about the orange cortina mate but each to their own... people get what they pay for!

 

sheffield - it's actually its big rival, the cavalier mk2 which I've converted into series 1 by modifying the front grille + badge with other bits and bobs needed to turn it into an early mk2 model.

 

hmmm regarding the 1100, you may have a point there but I would never have noticed if it hadn't been pointed out to me!

Loads have been resprayed.

Two of my latest code 3's. The escort has been converted into a GL model - was originally the crystal green ghia. Notice the flatter front bumper minus the bumps either side of the number plates which the ghias have. Have also modified the front panel beneath the bumper - originally vanguards made it too long and flat, have shortened it subtly and filed it so it's got a more diagonal shape like the real-life models.

 

The fiesta is a straight respray, have added red go-fast stripes, though not sure if that is a good idea!
