Looking very good, i think finding the exact wheels will be the most difficult part. Will you use the paint with the original colour code as well?

I am looking forward to seeing the finished mod.

I think i´m use the Wheels from the WRC, only painted in Silver:



Looks not exact like the originals, but i think it´s okay....

Sure, i paint it with Original Ford Imperial Blue.
After a lot of work the Body of the Car is ready for painting :



Hope it looks ok after Painting.....

:iagree Nice work on cutting those holes for a racing harness Uwe!! To do this work in 1:43 MUST take a lot of skill and much accuracy. The blue paint looks gorgeous. Are you printing out decals to represent the car's emblems?

Which manufacturer's Focus was the "donor car" for your project?

(Sorry I missed the thread when you first posted it.)

Those seats are from a Focus from the Modifers Series. I removed the Original seats with a knife and put the Sparcos in.

I don´t have to cut any Holes :wink
I have a set of Rallye-Decals, i think i will find some emblems there.
The Focus i used is a Minichamps WRC 2000 from Carlos Sainz. But i need another WRC Car from 2002 or 2003 to complete the RS. The Car from 2000 has the wrong Lights...

Yes, the Interior is from a Street Focus from Minichamps, only the seats are changed, and of course the Painting.

Great job! it must very hard to do that all on a 1:43 mod.

I think it looks quite good but why does the donor car have double tail-pipes?

The Focus WRC has the Tail-pipe on the right side, the Focus RS on the Left.
So i file the place for the pipe on the left side and would close the one on the right Side.
But then i think it looks good with a double Pipe :wink

:iagree it looks good with two tail pipes, you might as well keep it as it is now just to make it a bit different. :cheers
