Ford Escort MKIII XR3i right hand drive.
Three colours initially - red, white and silver.
Sunstar did a very nice version, which is not easily available in rhd these days.
Although it wouldn't surprise me that it doesn't make a come back.
They are re-running the turbo versions...

The Sun Star Mk3 models are known for paint rash, some of them suffer really badly!

Virtually all Mk3's, XR3i, RS1600i & the Black (Lady Diana) RS Turbo. The White RS Turbo not so much. On most of the Red cars it's much worse, most of them have super rough paint and bad rash, often blistered paint too. They're really bad.

I'm not sure if the metallic colours are affected.

That's pretty cool, here we'd mostly see it being badged as a Lada (I think) Same for some of the older Seat cars I think they have three different makers ?

That’s interesting. I have the 1.6 GL (I think it’s a 1.6!), and I was looking at it the other week. No paint rash on it at all. And quite a nicely detailed model over all (y)
