2001 Ford Mondeo by Minichamps by IFHP97, on Flickr

I've been trying to figure out why the Minichamps' version of the Mk III Mondeo doesn't look right. I think the top of the grille doesn't arch enough, the cutline on the top of the headlights is too diagonal and most of all the front of the car is too rounded -- almost looks like a Toyota.

Regarding the Anglia Van from Boreham. I found this picture on Flickr. I don't know if the 1:43 is based on the 1:1 or the oter way round...

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.
