Ford RS200 E2 modified partswork


The Portugal test in 1982 saw Airikkala and Vatanen testing 2 RS "1700T's". 100W was running the 1780 Turbo engine, and for comparision 101W was running a Brian Hart 2.3. Sadly, the Quattro's performance meant that Ford rapidly pulled the plug on the 1700T Sad

Great theme, Paul. Great models there! Cool

I have also used Vitor's decals to create the Martin Schanche rallycross RS200, but had to correct the decal on the front of the bonnet. The Viking tyres logo has wheels on the original, but not on the decals as produced.

There was that awful-looking Citroen BX T16 thing as well as the Visa. I'm sure I;ve seen a 1/43 scale model of the BX somewhere or other. Would make a good addition to the collection, perhaps?

I'll get my anorak!!

Cheers, and congrats, Steve

Thanks Steve. One thing i noticed last night is the RS200 is missing the naca ducts from in front of the rear wheels. Will have to fix that.

The BX and Visa actually ran in the WRC so are in a different collection theme.

Hi Paul,

Looks like my anorak slipped!! Laughing Thanks for setting me right - have never been a Citroen fan.

The RS200 didn't always have the ducts present. Might be worth checking some photos online to see if they were there or not for the event you have modelled your model on.

Cheers, Steve

I trust the original post was about the various prototypes that Citroen produced prior to the BX 4TC breaking cover which usually competed on the Mille Pistes rally in France and then disappeared!. There were at least 2 mid-engined 4wd drive versions of the Visa and a AX aswell as a couple of other BXs before the white elephant appeared.

One of the Visas is featured here:

There is a great French book which has pics of the cars and others which I can recommend:
