What cars do you want?

Mantas and Chevettes in 1/43 only.

Escorts in 1/24 and 1/43.

Like Mark said it depends on the livery and the colours, LHD or not? I bet you wish you had not asked at this point.

the manta was red with very little graffics, the escort was white with not much graffics either. the chevette was more complicated + ahd a few differant colours on it, all the cars were rhd. do you have any examples of these 3 cars that you have built b4?

You could try doing them youself. I have been only doing Irish cars for 18 months now and am getting better all the time-next evoloution of what I do is to buy an ALPS printer so I can print up white lettering on my decals. Next year is going to be very productive year on the model front. Work got in the way this year on too many occasions. Plan to produce a model per month. Boland's Focus, Bertie's cars-several, Coleman's Stratos, Harrison's 2005 car, Tracey's 205, a ganzie load of MK 11' from the 70's and 80's.

Its a art Ruby that not everyone can do so I would still recommend getting in touch with M Lowe.......

In fairness I have seen some of Mark's stuff which is very good, but it is also worth having a go yourself. I would not rate myself that highly compared to some other peoples work but part of the enjoyment and satisfaction is doing and creating it yourself. I am rather proud of my Breen Focus, yet is was flawed-the next one I am doing is for Andrew Purcell and it will be better. Yes it is somewhat of an art but if Mr Anfearmor were to have ago he might surprise himself.

The only problem if you are going to attempt to build a model is to start with a 1/43 plastic heller kit and try your painting and gluing and decal skills on that first before attempting to undertake a dearer model, that way you will see what you are up against
