Yes, those look better than I remembered- especially for affordable 20-year-old models.

Red Fiesta is a Joal, Escort and silver Fiesta are Solido

All will be replaced by Vanguards or Minichamps eventually.

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

These are really excellent. Not sure why they suddenly stood out to me, but the group in particular is a fine sight.

I'm assuming that the size difference between these models is basically accurate.

Has there been a decent 1/43 release of the bog standard (1.0 or 1.1L) mk1 Fiesta with the later black bumpers (without overiders)?

Nobody has done the basic car sadly, its on my wishlist. It could be done modifying an xr2 :lol:
I'm not addicted to models, an addict admits their problems & I don't have a problem.
