1978 Ford Escort Mk2 Rally Car

Hey everyone :) This is my entry for the Lugnuts 33rd challenge. If you're looking for the alternate scale, flip through my photostream a few pictures.

 

Anyways, this is a '78 Escort Mk2, a rally car to be more specific. The Escort is one of the most legendary RWD rally cars ever, popularized by drivers like McRae, Vatanen and Mikkola. The Escort comes in many variants, and alterations for different rally races. This particular version has flared arches, mud flaps, roll cage, and fog lamps inspired by the Escort RS1800.

 

My main inspiration comes from Lino M's Hillman Imp and Steven Marshall's incredible Fiats. Enjoy one of my most detailed and carefully built MOCs!
