ok guys, I had this project started long time ago and because I give a long break it was not published in the forum. so I would like to summarize it and would like to share the latest update I had last weekend....

Dear All;

Starting to a new long term project. and I think this project will be more diffucult and detailed then my previous one, BMW M3 Rally.

the model I will try to replicate is belonging to Belgian rally pilot Patrick Snijers who had driven this Ford Escort Cosworth in European Rally championship in 1994.

I am planning to share more photos and maybe some videos about the rally (94 Ypres Rally) and the original car after I finish the model.

As base, I am using Ford Escort Cosworth road car made by UT models in 1/18 scale. Many of you may know that UT made nice models but not much detailed.
therefore, I had to make a lot of modifications on the chasis and floorpan. also, for the interior I have to built from scratch since the model was a road car. It's a bit challenging because I have to scratch built many parts and try to fit them into the car.

*photo taken from internet, credits to unknown owner. this is the original UT models 1/18 scale model.

another diffuculty is to find the correct spare parts such as wheels, tires, front lights etc. which is time consuming, therefore, I am expecting this project to be a long term one.

anyway, let the photos talk and introducing you guys what I have done so far in 2 months.

UT models missing many of the details and many parts are closed with the mold/cast. therefore, I had to cut and trim many areas on the model.
the first part was the engine bay. the engine they used was only as look, and underside is the mold itself.

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07641

I would like to have a more detailed and accurate engine. therefore, I will be using Minichamps Sierra Cosworth engine.

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07768

the engine will be sitting like this and sure there will be some water pumps, tanks etc to be added.

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07767

secondly, I cut wholes for air intakes on the front bumper. also did cut the side signals in order to have more air flow to the brakes.

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07759

later on I did draw and cut the air ventiles at the roof.

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07642

I have used Stryene sheet to make the roof air scoop

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07756

I have also drilled a small whole for the aerial.

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07762

did drill the boot for the pins.

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07763

The air ventiles on the trunk were sealed, so I cut them for a better look. also did drill wholes for the hood pin.

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07760

I have drilled the side skirts for the jack.

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07764

then, I have prepared part of the roll cage inside the engine area.

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07753

the original floorpan of the UT models is not so detailed. one of the most important missing was the top of the rear wheels were open. so I decided to cover with a stryene

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07643

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07644

especially the drive train was not so detailed. so I decided to merge the Minichamps Sierra Cosworth floor pan with the UT one in order to give more details, differential, gear box etc.

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07751

this is the latest look after merging two floorpans. still lot of detail to fix and finally will be painted into white.

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07769

once again I used Sierra Cosworth parts to prepare the inside floorpan. the front floorpan is from Sierra. now need to prepare the back side which probably has to be custom made by stryene sheets.

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07770

these days I am busy and try to continue this project when I could. and another difficulty is to find the correct spare parts and to get them. therefore I believe this project will take long time. but I can say I am enjoying it so much.
above took me 2 months to get it into this situation.

after the body and the floorpans are as I wish, I will continue with interior details such as roll cage, bucket seats, oil tank etc.

as usual I am looking forward to your critics, suggestions and comments.

thank you for your attention.

last night I worked on the model a bit and finished the front axles and suspensions.
once again I used Minichamps Sierra Cosworth parts merged with AUTOart 206 WRC parts.

and here this is with the Minichamps differential and gear box;

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07791-1

tonight I was planning to do some work on the engine. then I decided to use the spare AUTOart Sierra Cosworth parts to see how they will look. then started with the AUTOart engine.
need to a abit cutting and fitting.

here in this photo inside engine is from AUTOart while the one at the side is Minichamps.

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07795-1

AUTOart

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07796-1

I should work on AUTOart engine and fit into correct position.

Minichamps

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07797-1

I have also realized that I can use AUTOart Sierra Cosworth rear Differential in this project. need to do more cutting and fitting though Smile
I think I started to make this project more complicated and difficult Smile

Let me know your ideas and suggestions on using AUTOart or Minichamps engine?

cheers

I think AA's mold and engine details/colors are better than the Minichamps one. therefore I decided to go with AA engine.
It gives me a bit hard time fitting it but worked well I guess.

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07798

this probably will be the final look of the engine besides some small details..

looking forward to your suggestions and comments Wink

last night I worked on the model and after the engine fitting I have done the body strengthening part next to the strut bars

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07800

after this, I started to built up the interior floor pan. the front piece is coming from Minichamps Sierra while I dont have any part that can fit to the back side. so I had to scratch built it.
I used stryene sheet to cover and fit the back floor pan.
there are still some small touch ups needed but will work on it at a later stage.

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07801

this is how it is going to look a like in one piece

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07802

at the end I worked a bit under the car. and try to fit the rear differential and suspensions on to position. the rear diff and arms are coming from AUTOart Sierra Cosworth.

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07804

that's it for the time being.

this weekend the WRC Germany is running... any of you guys following it up? It's live on air at www.wrc.com

cheers

started working on the wheel arches and suspension mountings last sunday and just finished, would like to share some photos with you guys.

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07805

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07808


I think I can now start to work on the roll cage and then some paint for the interior.

looking forward to your suggestions and comments.

since we are done with the inside floor pan we can continue with the roll cage!

here comes the work in progress...

look forward to your comments and suggestions...

I had a busy week therefore didnt have chance to spare time for the model. eventhough couldnt post the photos of the progress I made last week.
so here they go...

due to the roll cage, the door cards were too thick to close the door. so, I decided to built up scratch door cards.
also adjust the rear side cards to fit with the roll cage.

I will later paint these cards into mat black.

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07853

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07854

the second job was on the dashboard. I fit the new rev meter as well as add a mid panel with switches. also add the co-pilot trip master.

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07855

I will later paint the dashboard into matt black to match the door cards.

and as final work of the last weekend was detailing the floor panel to have more accurate look.
also did put some strength parts to the corner of the roll cage.

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07856

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07858

I will try to have more progress this weekend.

as usual, your suggestions and comments all welcome

earlier I have used Sierra door handles on the new door panels. but later I changed my mind and prefer to use the original Escort door handles.
fit and fix them to their new home

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07864

last friday, I have also received a set of Twin head lights made by resin. these were made by a mate from UK forums. they are resin copy of Escort WRC head lights.
I had to work a bit on them to fit and fix them into their new position.
here is a reference photo

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07868

so far these are the latest...
I am now working on the drive train positioning and the underneath the car. later I will also post some photos.

Have a good one guys!

this weekend, I worked to detail the interior as well as the bottom of the car. I have also painted and would like to share the latest situation...

here below is the original UT floor pan...

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07889

and this is my conversion fitting the minichamps Sierra coswroth's underneath parts & partly floor pan..

the UT floor pan end had the oil tank. since this is a rally car and the tank is inside the car, so this part had to be modified. so I cut off the oil tank and create the chassis part made by stryene square beams.

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07878

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07883

these photos are as a trial to see how the cage and the interior looks inside the models

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07884

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07885

there are still some work have to do inside and under the model. some parts need some small adjustments and maybe another coat of white paint to be applied.

as you guys may follow up above, this is going to be the replica of '94 Ypres rally winner Patrick Snijers car. therefore, I am trying to replicate the car at most possible. unfortunately, I think I will be replacing the the original Star shape wheels with the below ones...
the reason is that I couldnt find the correct matching wheels with 4 holes. the Uli nowak has the compomotive star shape replicas in 5 holes.

my wheels were also 5 holes but made of plastic/resin. therefore it was easier to modify them to 4 holes.

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07886

these are the latest updates on the model I have done recently.
looking forward to your suggestions and comments

thanks.

this week I have detailed the interior of the car as well as some paint job.
I have painted the dashboard into mat black and attached the rev, co-pilot computer and the switch group in the middle console.

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07904

I have painted the door cards into mat black as well. also attach the door opener and a pocket at the co-pilot door

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07907

I have also painted the front carriage into mat black and detailed with red

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07905

I have scratch built a oil tank referring to Francois delecour's car.

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07903

I have also detailed the interior; cables, fire extinguishers, pedal set, gear and hand brake

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07908

this is the current look of the interior which I will be adding some more parts soon

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07901

I will soon be starting the paint job. therefore, before painting whole car, I give a try with the trunk first.

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07910

currently it looks good to me.
I will later paint the whole body and the doors into white. and after it dries properly then will do the window frames and finally do the red part

I have started with the paint last weekend.

first of all, I started with white color and then I did applied a layer of clear coat. I will be waiting for the paint and the clear coat to settle before I paint the window frames and then finally the red color.

the first photo taken right after the white+clear coat applied on the model

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07911

and this is just a trial to see how the model looks in white...

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07917

so far our white beauty Wink

it's been a while I have been working to fit and fix components on the floor pan.
since the whole floor pan had been scratch built and all suspension, differential etc coming from different models, there was a bit job to do fitting and fixing them to each other.

so, still some adjustments needed but here below how it looks at the moment.

Front

Rear

the whole floor pan

AP Racing brake pads & discs

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07937

and this time, I made a different fitting between the hubs & the wheels. I tried to replicate original fitting as real cars does have.
now, we can go to the service park to change the tires/wheels Smile

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07934

first baby steps Wink

Ford Escort Cosworth, 1994 Ypres Rally, Patrick Snijers DSC07929-1

these are so far what I have done. still need some adjustments on the wheels and suspension

let me know what you guys thinking!
suggestions and comments welcome

ok guys, it's time for some update on the model!
I know it's been veryyyyy long time I haven't done any progress since I was looking forward to get some parts custom made and it took a while to sort it out.
anyway, I have had chance to work on the model last weekend and did some basic detailing in the interior.
worked on the fuel lines and the fire lines...
also prepared the photo edged seat belts and location of the seats

looking forward to your suggestions and comments.

thank you guys for the comments!
this project was on the shelf for a very long time since I had to scratch build most of the parts. for most of the parts I have been building, it was my first experience or the second. therefore many parts had been build by many trials. and some parts I was not so happy therefore, the model was left over....
but after some exciting progresses on some of the parts I was waiting for, I give it a go and decided to finish this beautiful rally car replica.
I hope to share one of the most important parts with you guys very soon Wink
just a bit more patience please....

I was happy having the 1/43 Minichamps version of this car until viewing the standard and attention to detail of your build! This really does take things to a different level!

thats the main reason I like 1/18 scale. can play around and add more details...
I hope soon or later a producer like AA or even minichamps reproduce this car in 1/18 with more accurate parts. so, I don't have to go through all this hassle once more to custom build the floor pan and the interior Wink
I will have more projects with Escort if any producer re-release it...

so, here I am back again with another progress

as explained last week, I gave a break to this model for a very long time. the reason was, there were some missing parts and areas I was not happy about.
one of them were the wheels. I couldn't find the proper replica of the original Speedline wheels so I decided earlier to use the 7 spoke wheels I have in hand. and made the arrangements accordingly...

Escort was a very important car competed in the rally history. so, I would like to replicate it as precise as possible.

I have been in touch with Halil for a very long time discussing about this model. he was one of the impatient supporters of this model and keep asking and pushing me to finish the model Smile
he also knew that I was not so happy with the wheels so he offered me to take the responsibility to custom build these wheels for this project.
after spending many hours and efforts he finished these perfectly crafted wheels!
I would like to thank him once more in here for his great efforts and his patience on working with me to build up these beautiful aluminum wheels!
thank you mate a million Wink

Halil, first started to draw the wheels in 3D.

after I received the wheels, I made some small adjustments and paint them into white as original.

At last!!
Omer, these rims are much more better after paintwork and now the result is excellent.
İ can feel that you are so close to happy end:)
Standart escort looks even better with these rims, i m looking forward to see them on bastos escort. İ hope you dont make us wait mate Smile
