Wow, dead accurate. I remember when Ford launched this model to bolster sales of the Escort in parts of the country. Never really caught on, but it was a great little car. And yours looks like one that one of my fellow reps drove as a company car for it's entire run. Perfect work and color choice. Looks so real !!!

Nicely done! I had a friend back in school who had one of these, not a bad little car.

Very cool and well done. I owned a 82 LN-7. I have a 1/32 model of it, I gotta clean it up and post it.

These cars were pretty hard to love back in the day, but have become more interesting with the passing of time. It's very cool to see one of these kits built today. Nice work on this one. I'm not sure I've ever seen one of these kits built on any of the forums.

Yet , when they were contampory they had a high demand on the Used Car Market . IIRC , a 2 seater ? With a Turbo . fast was the word used . What an excellent replica .. Thanx ..

That looks fabulous! 

That Revell is the one EXP I don't have. I have both versions of the 1/32 Monogram, and the LN7. I also have the MPC (on my site, actually!) and was just talking about this kit the other day. I did NOT know it was the turbo model!

I have never actually seen a real Turbo in the flesh. The front air dam and spoiler really help it out!

I have always loved the bugeye EXPs. Hate the later ones. "If I wanted an Escort, I'd have bought an Escort!" is what I think of those. 

Man, now I see it's a turbo, I NEED one to go with my SVO, Turbo Coupe and Tamiya XR4i Sierra. I know it's not a turbo, but it's a mid-80's Ford that's being all euro and stuff. 

Congrats on a great job on a seemingly rare and neat kit. 


Thanks a tonne for sharing. It takes a lot to make me jealous. I am right now.

thanks for the nice words. I know its a pretty rare kit. It went together really nicely. The only problem with the kit where the windows, the ones from the kit were all tinted and they didn’t fit that good, so i made all the windows feom an acetate sheet
