Wow the boot area really looks off. Dang.. what happened during development phase? someone dropped the prototype model on its rear?
I dont have any Tecnomodel in my collection but they make some interesting models like you said, just cant find any deal, Its always about 250us or 205us for the less popular modelsThis company, IMO, makes the most interesting and diverse range in the industry. I love all my Tecnomodels and will certainly add at least one. Hope they are compelled to do the last series of the mid 1990's too
Funnily enough, in relation to the Escort I'm going the opposite direction - switching from the Raceland special and getting the 1978 Mampe Norisring version.Those 917 Spyders are pretty damn cool. I may have to add one of those. It's tough though, it's so much money for a model that is as detailed as a Spark.
Speaking of Spark, Raceland is releasing a special model of the same Zakspeed Escort (not the exact same Mampe version, but close) so I'll add that instead and save $50 or whatever the difference is.
