Second one on the bench. Another simple build, wheels and lower and painted like the box top.

Funny how similar the front end looks to a Mk.I Escort, the back end looks like some old Datsun. Hybrid child of Ford and Datsun :)

It was considered by many as Japan's answer to the Mk I RS1600.

So after a bit of time on the work computer I found a colour code for an orange used by Isuzu during the GTR's production dates so made it up and here it is.

Finished this last friday but never had time to take a few bad pics to post. The bumpers have mold lines on each end and i stuffed up one of the badge decals so i'm going to redo the bumpers and have ordered another kit so i can get the decal and build the new one as the 1800GT.
