Default Paints/colours

So after searching I found the correct colours required for the TAMIYA ESCORT WRC. TAMIYA have that many different types of paint for different surfaces and different paint codes its crazy. TS, PS, PC, LP, X, XF,...… etc,,,,,,,

I managed to trace what I needed for the WRC.

PS-4 Polycarbonate for the body
TS-15 Acrylic for the 3d wing and wing mirrors
TS-79 Clear coat semi gloss for the wing and mirrors
TAMIYA Light Grey Primer for wing mirrors and wing

Here are the cans to show what I will be using.....

Default Brembo Discs and Callipers

I have done a little work today on the chassis.

Ive actually got 1/10 Alloy Brembo Callipers and drilled Discs for the chassis. I have fitted the passenger side, but still have the drivers side to fit.

I will get pictures up of what Ive done today....

Default Brembo Discs and Callipers

Check these bad boys out !!!

Brembo Discs and Callipers fitted. You will notice that the fronts are as life and much larger than the rears. They actually work as in turn through the calliper (not brake). So they could be left on to run/race with. I think they look stunning....

Also anodised in TRF Blue, just by coincidence...….

Default WRC & REPSOL

Hi Alan,

The Rally Im doing is the WRCs this had a different rear wing which can be seen in the pictures. One is the box art TAMIYA, the other is a real WRCs.

I have also included the real picture of the REPSOL with the same wing, but this did have a version with the whale tail.

With the road cars ESCORT COSWORTH, there was an option wing kit which removed the Whale tail and only had the boot spoiler. This actually gave approx. 5-10mph more than with the whale tail..... I had the Whale Tail though....

Default Brembo Discs and Callipers

Brembo Discs and Callipers fitted all round now.

These were a nightmare to fit as they did not fit the hubs. I had to reamer the outer rear hub/steering arms bearing hole out to allow the callipers to fit front and rear. The rear hubs and steering arms then needed drilling to take a grub screw to lock the calliper in place and hold it secure. Then the disc was fitted.

All done know though and worth the struggle.....

Interesting bit of Escort history there Mark, thank you..
I never realised that there were optional wings...probably because I couldn't afford a Cossie..!...I would have gone with the whale tail though..

Default Body cut out.

I started the body today. I decided what Im going to do with it. I cut to the lines other than the front bumper bottom. I left the extra and then trimmed it to allow for the little front lip. I then decided to cut/reamer holes in the little air intakes, then cut out completely the bottom grill and top grill. I will then metal mesh from the inside to give a real life look. Holes ready for the wing mirrors..

I have a alloy intercooler to fit in the bottom grill, so undecided as to either spray the grill black and leave the intercooler alloy, leave the mesh alloy and spray the intercooler black, or leave the grill off and just have the intercooler sticking through. I will see once I have the mesh.

I also plan to mesh the air intakes also. So here is the body cut out and ready for the next stage...… PAINT !!!!!

Default Wing Prep.

With the body shell cut out and ready for masking then painting. I thought I would prep the WRC wing and paint that.

With it being 3d printed, it has very fine lines that I wanted to rub down and try and get rid of. I used 800 wet & dry to rub it down, then the MAGICAL BIT !!!

It wouldn't be a build if you didn't borrow something from the Mrs or Daughter without them knowing you had taken it..... Well its a nail file buffer type thing. Ive seen them both using them on there nails to very successful results of shineyness…. Just what I needed......

So I went full on and robbed it...…...

I used this in-between coats of primer to buff up the primer and flatten the primer, and it really worked well...….

Here is the wing as it came from L&L Models and at the primer stage. Im now allowing to dry off over the 48hrs. Then I will paint it blue and repeat as above...…..

Default The Magical tool.

Here is the Magical Tool I robbed from the Mrs to complete an Ultra Smooth and Ultra Shiny finish on the primer...…

You will notice there is 4 parts to the nail thing. The glittery part is the part that makes it shiny......
