Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Ford Escort MK2 Sweden 1978 Vatanen Made to fit Italeri kit ITA3655 With the recent release of Italeriís Escort kit, the appearance of numerous alternative liveries was inevitable! Most of the sets reviewed here are re-issues from DMC and there are some all new ones to come as well. When we look down the entry lists for the rallies in the late 70s, in many cases Escorts make up half the cars and thatís the case for the 1976 RAC. Pentti Airikkala was excluded in his #22 machine, while Roger Clark went on to win in the Cossack car. Both of these need a simple single colour paint finish and include all stripes. Both 1978 cars will need masking, with Vatanenís fifth-placed Swedish mount red over white and Russell Brookesí Circuit of Ireland winner needing a three-colour finish of yellow, white and blue. The Publimmo machine is another single colour finish, a bright blue, and this time there are three options to choose from, Vatanen on the Monte in 1981, Waldegaardís 1981 Monte and Loubet for Corsica 1981. The decal print isnít quite as crisp as Studio 27 or Renaissance, but at these prices they offer great value.
Reasonably well printed decal sets in various scales. Instructions at best adequate, at worst non-existant! Made in Denmark.
