The Ford Escort RS 1800 Mk.II

1979 World Rally Championship

Rallye Monte Carlo version

Dimensions:

  • Length: 167mm
  • Scale: 1:24

The Ford Escort Mk 2 was launched in 1975. It was a significant evolution compared to the Escort Mk 1 that debuted at Brussels Motor Show in January 1968. It used the same reliable mechanical components as the Mk 1 but adopted a new design based on a squared-style look which was part of the aesthetic and stylistic taste of the '70s.

The product was available in three body styles (2 doors, 4 doors and 3 doors station wagon), five type of engine, and a significant variety of settings and configurations.

The Escort Mk 2 was mainly produced in the Ford Group German plants and achieved good commercial success. In addition to the more classic version, the Escort Sport version was also released, which characterized a more aggressive look and distinctive sport interiors.

To compete successfully in the World Rally Championship, a dedicated model, the RS 1800, was introduced to complete the line up. Successful results have been achieved: The team Waldegård Björn - Thorszelius Hans, that got the second place in the Wordl-famous Monte Carlo Rally in 1979, won the World Rally Championship at the end of the year. The Motosport team also achieved excellent results with the other team, ranked fifth in the Monaco 1979 sport event, formed by Mikkola Hannu and Hertz Arnee.


Starter Paint Pack Includes:

6 x 17ml Vallejo model paints. Vallejo paints are supplied in plastic bottles of 17ml with an eyedropper device which keeps paint from drying and prevents spills. The model color range has been specifically developed for adherence on difficult surfaces such as metal and plastic, but the product is not toxic, not flammable, and does not give off noxious fumes. 

Please note: The paint packs offered are only our suggestion from the box art and will not match directly with the instructions found within the kit.

Plastic Magic Cement is a thin, liquid plastic cement with a 10-15 sec adjustment time & non-clog action. It is non-toxic, non-flammable, has minimal odour and almost zero emissions when compared to competitors.
