The first purchases of 2005, both by Minichamps and very detailed the only minus is the sealed boot of the Capri but other than that I am very pleased with both of them. These were a topic of a discussion only a few weeks ago here and I couldnt help getting them both.
Ford Escort Mk1 RS 1600 AVO 1970

Ford Capri RS 2600 1970

Great Models rpm!

I was seconds away from buying the red version of the Escort today, but i decided against it for $$$ reasons. I'll get one before the summer though.

:cheers and thanks for posting the pics.

A couple of great additions you have made :cheers :cheers

Think 2005 will be a good year for the blue oval fans as AUTOart are doing a few more MKI Escorts and Minichamps are doing a few more of the DTM Capri's

Then the Holy Grail ( MKII RS2000 ) :woohoo :woohoo Mexico, Zakspeed ( X-Pack ) and another few

Just need a 1:18 Sapphire Cos and I'll be more than happy :danbana :danbana

thank you all :cheers

MkII RS 2000 is the one I am waiting for as well, I hope AUTOart will listen to us about a 1:18 Saff Sierra Cossie.

2 great choices there, rpm...cars from that era have so much character. No cookie cutter styling determined by the wind tunnel

Beautiful additions!

The Escort with the bulging fenders looks the business....now all you have to do is put some speedline rims on it just like in the photo! :cool

Very nice models. I want to buy them soon too in exactly the same two colours to add them to my "begining of 70ies collection".

:nicejob That looks gorgeous Steve, very nice photoshop work. I somehow try to keep all my models stock, but that cant be said for my preferences of 1:1 ones. I also like the MK1s standard rims, as they were typical of the period and fitted to some other cars both ford and non-ford.
I ve got a damaged Integrale that I was burnt by an Ebay seller, I have some plans to mod that one possibly fitting some white Speedlines if I can find. :cheers
