Newsletter 274: Ford Escort Mk. II

Ford Escort Mk. II

Ford Escort Mk. II
A few weeks ago we announced the re-edition of the utterly famous Ford Escort Mk. II kit by Esci, this time under the seal of Italeri. Well, we already have it on the shelves at SpotModel!!!!!!! :D

We built the old kit several years ago, the transparent body version, and opening the new box and breathing again the smell of the recently injected plastic is an experience that only a modeler's nose can truly appreciate. It is impossible to resist. :)

Many, many thanks to Italeri for this re-edition. :)
