CDM Collection Ford Puma Racing Super 1600

Post by CDM » Sat Jun 09, 2018 6:48 pm

Just finished a couple of Ford Puma Super 1600s for my own collection.

There is a resin kit available, with a variety of decal options available from Rallye Miniatures in France. Both model and decals are on Ebay.

The kit is nicely cast in resin, with white metal wheels and photo etch parts. The windows might look tricky but are actually very good. Unlike some other models there is a recess to drop the precut windows into place and they actually fit very well. I have made three of these kits.

The Rapid Fit model is an older Tip Top resin kit. It looks very similar in shape and design to the above, but has a bit more detail on the chassis. I built this model a few years ago and in hindsight the blue should be Ford Racing blue

The models are

2002 Monte Carlo Rally Daniel Carlsson & Per Karlsson

2002 Monte Carlo Rally Martin Rowe & Chris Wood

2002 Auxerrois Patrick Magaud & Guylene Brun

2004 Monte Carlo Rallye Jari-Mati Latvala and Mika Antilla

Doubt we will ever see Ixo's promised version(s) so a good collection to have.

I hadn't realised IXO had flagged up a possible release.

I have just finished another one so will post a photo soon.

Possible and actual are two entirely separate things with our friends from Macau! I wouldn't count on it appearing any time in the next few years if at all!

Cheers

Chris,

You don't happen to build these on commission do you?

I've been looking at these kits, and wanting to modify one slightly to replicate my Ford Racing Puma, but due to suffering arthritis in my wrists realise that I just don't have the ability to undertake such a project.

Was talking to Andy last night about this and he mentioned the kits you had made.

Cheers

Simon
