€75 is about £24 each which is a bargain as they are going for £25+ and add postage costs too on eBay

Was thinking of a few Irish cars that could be made-the cars look very good.

Coleman, Fisher, Brian Nelson, a lot of the curent MK II boys might like a big model too

Doing the big models is good, but are people prepared to pay the price of such Irish drivers cars as I would think if you look at the big Irish Subaru models go for £99 the Escorts would be similar

Given that they would be specalist, one off I reckon so. I know of one person who will pay me a lot for a Fisher M3 in 1/24 or 1/18-which is what I am working on at the moment. As it is I would generally be doing them for myself anyway and if someone wants to buy from me then that is even better. It about tmaking the decals more than anything rather than doing full conversions.

In is on my mind to do the 76 COI Escort -Zakspeed arches and all. The 78 car looks Ok. I have decals half done in 1/24 for the 77 Galway Stratos, Plus Studio 27 Decals for the 86 911 from Corsica-all I need to do is make up COI or Donegal rally plates for an Irish car.-so keep your eyes on my posts.

Current plans/projects for 2006:

1/18 Fisher M3-ongoing
1/24 Focus-Boland-ongoing, another Breen for AP, Machale.
Fisher Subaru-Blue & Silver.
Donnelly Corollas-Meteror and Kingspan versons.
Harrison Subaru S9 2005.

plus plus plus.

I think I will stop announcing stuff because everyone wants what I build for myself:D

I don't know-seems like there is a market for it. I was building the Breen Focus for myself until Andrew Purcell got wind of it and then it was given to Ray. Mind you I will be getting a reward for that in Febuary. I have been asked on several occasions to do models but I am not set up for mass production. The best I can hope to offer when I get the quality up to a good standard is decals and perhaps some resin bits for a trans-kit but whole models-too labour intensive to make it worthwhle

This is why I only do short runs and 1/43 are easier to do with regards to collecting and building

I still have all the pics from Ray's first event in the car so maybe a model will be done
