Focus base help needed

Post  Ted Creedon on Tue Dec 24, 2013 5:52 am

Is this

a suitable base for this?


Rear wing looks different, but rest looks the same (but I'm sure a more competent person will put me right).  Smile

Right model alright Ted!
Granted the rear wing is little larger than the real car, but it is the correct model.
Happy Christmas Ted!

Many thanks Niall, Paul.  Looking thro' the West Cork Rally book reminded me that I have a set of those decals somewhere so I'll treat myself!

Thanks again and compliments of the season to you both.  santa  santa  santa  santa

The minichamps Kremer model of the same car is worth a look too Ted, thats is what i used to make my model, just felt the wheels filled the back arches slightly more realistically, no big thing though.
