Arrived this morning. Very happy with this. Frank Gardner - 2nd overall in the 1970 BSCC - this car is apparently the 2nd place car from the 18th July British Grand Prix support race at Brands Hatch (which was a BSCC qualifying event), but i have a document which suggests this may be a later round of the BSCC at Brands Hatch in August that year which Frank won. Either way, very pleased!

i've bought cheaper models in my time......

Will have to lay off buying for a bit, but i did like the look of this a lot.

I wondered the mirror bit myself when it arrived this morning - googled some photos and it raced without mirrors.

I so want that model, as well as the other 2 Mustangs that they have released.

I really need to save up alot of money first before I can buy any of them so may be some time before they enter my collection :(

I know a few of you were very interested in the Frank Gardner boss model. FPM models in Germany have this Armco version which has just been released for EUR95 - its not on the web site at the moment, so ive posted a link to another site showing the model

The Brian Muir Capri RS2600 from the 1972 Silverstone ETCC race which with very minor tweaking becomes the car Brian drove in the 1972 BSCC/BTCC season.

I like the look of the Capri, and have ordered the same. What tweaks are needed to make it into the BSCC/BTCC car?

I think (but am still researching) that it just needs the John Miles driver name removed from the roof - i think they were due to split the driving duties in the ETCC.

Looks great.
Only the rear tires look out of place.

Yes - I agree re the tyres - was looking for an ecomical way to add the right style of tyres with the knock off centres. Ended up with buying a GT40 and using the wheels - fronts are perfect - rears are too wide and too tall. Not by much but enough to grate. Overall I can live with it.

Maybe find another GT40 and use the front wheels in the rear?

My thoughts exactly - the "cheap" build is becoming more expensive by the second :)

Had to take the dremel to the inner arches to fit the rears in :)

I'm glad you are listing it as the correct driver :D It's a shame that Trofeu got it wrong and list it as Fitzpatricks car.

Of course with a number and number plate change this model can easily be changed to the sister car of Fitzpatricks.

I'm lovin the Galaxie as well. This is one model I would really love in my collection, I may have to try that conversion myself at some point.

Another Ford car you could convert easily is the Vanguard Spice car to the Andy Rouse version, I've done this but haven't had a chance to take any photos yet, keep your eyes posted as I will hopefully get around to it very soon.

Okay, i'll admit it, i couldn't live with the rear tyres on the Falcon - they were nagging away at me. Changed and it looks better for it.
