Next introduction, apart from a steady stream of modern and classic rally cars, is the 1980s Ford Granada mk.2 Estate car in metallic grey. While a nice model, I wish they'd picked a different colour.

Will the MK II Granada Turnier be an all-new casting? The only Mk II wagon that I can think of is the Neo version. I imagine the over time several versions will be issued.

Looks like a new casting to me, but PCT's stock continues to amaze me. They've also announced a Bastos rally support version.

Apparently the Escort is now available in a new colour

The dark blue of the PW version is a familiar colour on the Escort, this one not so much. It is attractive though.

I agree about the color of this retail version.

Next up is a hobby release of the PW Sierra XR4i in dark metallic blue and this facelifted mk.3 Escort which will be a welcome addition, even though it doesn't seem entirely correct to me.

Interesting. This model first appeared in the Argentine part-work series.

That Escort is tempting model indeed, most likely ends up in my collection at some point :)

Uh-oh...

Upcoming Ixo releases: Fiat 242 van 'Martini rally team' and several Lancia Delta S4 Martini rally cars. Guess which rally car's still missing from my collection? :?

Also several Escort mk.3 rally cars that look quite tasty.
