The Tamiya Ford Sierra RS Cosworth mainly comes in two different racing liveries.
I was not much keen on the idea of toying with decals, so I decided to build it as a street version of the famous rally car.
I built it while being abroad, with no access to parts box; this model could have been much better detailed, notably on the interior level with seatbelts, photo-etched enhancements and quite a few other elements.
None of the less, the body proportions are quite well replicated, sharp, as most Tamiya kits.
I chose white, a color quite widespread on this model during the eighties.
This kit builds up smoothly; no fit issues. You will just have to carefully sand the mold lines on all bumpers.

I also have invested a bit of efforts in detailing the chassis:
Nice work! I always thought Tamiya's Sierra kits were some of their best, everything just lines up beautifully with little to no "parts massaging" required.
I built two when they were new out. One was the racer, which I saw regularly as a marshal @ Silverstone circuit, and the second was built as the road version for my son's boss who had a standard Sierra Cosworth and an RS 500 version in black.
Well done elbeik on yours it looks great in white and sits just right on the road.
Love it! Great work, Azmi. I've thought about doing a similar version by combining w/the stock earlier Sierra by Tamiya. I have the early car but not this later racing version. Maybe someday.
Tamiya issued the XR-4 road version - the interior tub would have been perfect.
