So, I got hit by the bug again yesterday. Went to my local hobby shop and looked at the kits. Well, they had some on sale. Bought a Focus RS WRC (2001) (this one (http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/plastic/124sportscarseries/24241.html) ) for $22 CAD (LESS than Japan MSRP!).

Anyway, I'm not a huge fan of this livery, so I thought I'd look to the people at Studio 27. Lots of options. None are in stock. I hope HLJ can get them if I ask for one......

Anyway, I couldn't find any other decal sets besides Studio 27. Are there any others?

The ones I'm favouring....

and

and finally

I don't have a car picture of this last one... not sure what the base colour for it is, but the decals look cool! Anybody know what colour it uses?

Thanks, guys.

the Marlboro car is all red... the decals include all the white panel stuff

If you try mediamix (http://www.mediamixhobby.com.sg/catalog/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=focus) and search for focus there are a few.

I think the German and Cyprus decals are quite unusual.

I think my favourite has to be Markko Martin's livery from last year, the deep blue metallic with white RS logos (as featured in Tamiya's latest kit). Simple but :sunglasse

I haven't seen the second of your choices above before, but it looks pretty good. Might have to look around and see if I can find it.

There are quite a few other liveries available for the Focus, try looking on http://www.mediamixhobby.com.sg
Wong stocks a few more different ones.

FYI, there is the 9/11 memorial livery available from Rally NZ as well as livery from Manfred Stohl and Armin Kremer, not to mention the livery for the early 2003 Focus, and there are 2 or 3 others I forget the names of although I can picture them in my head :bloated:

My favourite non-works livery has to be Kremer 2002. Works - both "Marting" and "RS" liveries from 2002.

Wow, I have to agree! I looked over that one at first because I thought it was for the RS 2002. But it appears to be for the RS 2001. Thanks!

Well, I goofed. The second choice there is for the "WRC 2000" kit and not the "RS 2001" kit. So it's a no-go.

I'm thinking I may just go for that MediaMix Kremer car.... ~$16 CDN and they ship lettermail, so it should skip customs (where they charge me $5 for handling!). Shipping should be cheap, right? Like $2? It's only lettermail....

I don't know about the shipping to Canada, but I can tell you I have the Kremer decals from Micromark and they are fantastic, I can't wait to built the model with them on, but it is stuck in a long line at the moment.
