Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Ford Escort RS1800 Monte Carlo 1979 The announcement of this kit was a popular one as there hasn’t been a plastic kit of the subject for several years since the last Revell release. Looking at the sprues, this is from the same basic ex-Esci tooling as that Revell release and so will be familiar to many. The shape of the car is good and there is a modestly detailed engine beneath the removable bonnet which offers scope for some extra personal touches. The decals are clearly printed and are for Hannu Mikkola’s fifth placed car from the Monte, although with the several previous releases of the kit, there are numerous other liveries available from Renaissance, Studio 27, DMC and others.
Excellent value plastic kits offering a decent level of details for very little cost. Made in Italy.
