The CAD drawings show two different style tires, I wonder if they will both be included or this is a hint of another version of the kit.

Or like most other releases from Belkits, there will probably be an additional set of tyres and suspension parts available separately.

Late 2015, it leaves us some time to spare the cash I need at least ten of them !!
Finally, Belkits follow the youngtimer path

Why do you think they show a back seat in the renderings?

The car on the box is from the period. Rules back then required that the rear seats were still in the cars. Same with things like door trims etc.

Re: Ford Escort RS1600 MK.I - Belkits 1:24

The tool roll dipicted in the 3D images is for the Safari or World cup spec Mk1 escorts.
The rules for these events allowed for the use of the rear seat area for spare and tools due to the aggressive nature of the event .
(note: the CB aerial on some shots)

It's common knowledge the Belkits aim to provide a variety of version of their rally cars and the rear seat delete possibly be an option.


Most 1/24 -1/25 rally cars don't engine detail but if you insist...

Engine options for those interested are already out there in a variety of kits. (common knowledge to some I'm sure)

Tamiya Lotus 7 : has a pre crossflow which can be easily converted to x flow , and naturally raising the block height should be done also.

Monogram '85 Ford SVO Mustang : has a Pinto engine that will require de turboing

Tamiya Lotus Europa : has a Lotus Twin cam which needs very little modifications.

esci /Revell Mk2 escort has a nice engine BDG engine which can be used.

Apart from the Mk2 escort these kits still turn up cheap if your patient and getting the engine in resin is a good option IMO.

Handy reference is your interested..

Anyone else thinking this is kick Revell in the right spot to re release the Mk2...
