1978 Ford Escort Mk2 Rally Car

Newer Older

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!

    That's amazing! I love the simplicity of the stripes, though they add so much to it. The fenders are beautifully built, too.

    Great job, Dylan!

    Thanks Ricecracker! You're the first person to notice that they aren't flames :) Everyone thinks they are flames but they're not intended to be :)

    Haha, sue me but I thought they were flames! :O

    Typically Dylan Denton, of course it had to be a rally car :)

    ^at least you live in Europe where rally racing actually exsists. In America, rally racing is just some BMX bike nerds doing crazy stunts in their energy-drink sponsored Subies.

    I love this Ford! I can imagine Ari Vatanen taking it sideways in the late seventies!

    I think this looks fantastic!

    I'd like to build one of these at my usual scale sometime.

    Those rear fenders look fantastic! Not to mention the stripes work at the front. One of your best matey.
