Drive an Icon!
The iconic Escort was manufactured between 1968 and 2004 by Ford Europe. The Mk.II was produced from 1975 to 1980, a front-engine, rear-wheel drive car with a classic boxy body. The RS1800 was fitted with a high performance DOHC 4-cylinder engine and became the base for a successful works team rally car that secured Manufacturers' and Drivers' championships in 1979. Now, this rally legend is recreated in an R/C model assembly kit, with a polycarbonate body accurately capturing the ageless style. Based upon the versatile MF-01X chassis, it will provide plenty of fun on both road and dirt surfaces.


The iconic boxy form of this two-door legend is rendered artfully in polycarbonate, pre-painted white.


Plenty of separately molded parts up the realism - spotlights, headlight cases, bumper and side mirrors.


Here is a close-up on the side mirror design. Window sections come pre-painted in tinted Smoke (PS-31).


The square lines of the rear are artfully depicted, with the spoiler on the boot also captured.


Eight-spoke light blue wheels are paired with 60mm-diameter, 26mm-width rally block tires for great grip.


Why not employ the separately sold Tamiya LED Light Unit to add even more realism to your Escort Mk.II Rally?
