Ford Escort MK2 Zakspeed turbo of Martin Schanche 1983 scale 1/24

In 1983 Martin Schanche drove rallycross ,with this by Zakspeed powered turbo engine, two-wheel drive Ford Escort.
With more than 500hp it was not enough against the 4 wheel drive audi cars.

I want to make this model at scale 1/24.

I use a basic kit from Revell, bodyworkkit from Reji and the basis for the Zakspeed engine was the monogram Ford Mustang IMSA.

They other tuning parts came from Scale Production, the seatbelts, the turbocharger, the tires ... The wheels are self-made 13 "mini-lites.
Enjoy

Oh wow what a great subject - and this is looking awesome! Looks like you could maybe use the rear wing from the Zakspeed Capri Tamiya kit?

Now the rear spoiler is on the car.
Now I must make the car ready to set him in the right colors and making the decals.
