You make my heart beat faster! I am a administrator on a Escort mark 1 and 2-forum, so i guess that will give you a good hint about my interest for these cars! And i am a big 1/5-scale enthusiast aswell

Looks extremely good, i have seen your Kadett in the other thread too, very nice work. One car i would like to seein 1/5-scale is the Escort WRC as pictured below

Are these bodies you are making for 380 mm wide chassies or 400 mm? I have a FG Marder which i have converted to rally by using a Ford Focus-body from MCD, this has a width of 380 mm and have a wheelbase of 535 mm. The onroad cars from FG is 400 mm wide i think.

So you need side-, front- and rear-view pictures to make the drawings? I will see what i can find

It is the low spoiler used on the WRC-cars, not the "whale tail" as shown on the pic on the model car That is the Coswort-spoiler.

Thanks for the measurements, i like what i see

I ain't making no molds But spitfireV's are extremely nice!

I have this Tamiya Escort WRC in 1/10th scale, if you want to i can take some pics of it so you have something to scale up. I guess it is hard to find these pics on the web straight on from all sides of it.

Ok, i saw these two pictures too, but i thought they were way too small for you to size them up. I think the WRC one has the coolest look by the way, the front bumper and rear spoiler looks really good, but there is a lot of details to take care of though...
