Thread: Return of the '72 Ford Escort Mk I: Redux Edition

    Default Return of the '72 Ford Escort Mk I: Redux Edition

    I was going to sell this body. Then I found out about Al's Scale basement nights. After we had dinner one day after I got off work, he talked me into looking at putting stickers on my car. Putting stickers on it totally transformed the appeal of the car itself. Then I ended up cutting out the lights and replacing them with lightbuckets from other cars. Add in a double-stacked spoiler with the raised supports, and suddenly... this car ain't in Kansas no more. Every time I look at it, I can't help but think about how much a boring old Kamtec body had been transformed from a homely looking vegetarian to a full blown carnivore. I'll let the pictures do the rest of the talking.

    P.S. I'm aware my plate is wrong. I wrote off my last RC car, and haven't had a chance to change the plate when I renewed my insurance.

    That track is in Als basement. He calls it Armature Alley. We're running there tomorrow night. It's in Upper Lonsdale, North Vancouver. Definately a fun track. That's where I draw my inspiration from for my track. I've seen up to 8 people running on it at one time. That gets pretty hectic. It's not that big down there. It's kinda funny, but we all seem to find a spot to stand/sit.
