Ford 1965 Anglia

Recommended Posts

Hi all, quick question...Does anyone know if there is a 1/32nd slotty or kit of a 1965 Ford Anglia.

 

This aerodynamic custom, once belonged to Paul Fahe and is still raced here in N.Z as far as I know...

 

Would make a wicked project car :)

Think Airfix my have had kit but probably not available now.

 

Why not scratch build. See recent AUSLOT thread on similar project for Triumph Sports car.

 

Car looks to have fairly simple lines so this may be no harder than bashing a plastic kit.

 

You could then call yourself a real slotty. I bashed a Scaly FJ car to a Lotus 18/21 recently. See Tasman Cup thread

Awesome links! There are some fantastic cars in there - Austin A35 would be a great Brock project!

George Turner Models offerings are superb. Even his resin chassis are pretty good. But, a warning.... They're like so many other things. One is never enough. You will see so many more kits that you want.


Computers. They'll never catch on.

Steve Stewart also was casting one. Check what comes with the body,some are complete others are just body shell. I have 3 different ones here and never got around to building one up. The Scalex Escort chassis is the ideal donor.

Probably my first real car. 997cc of pure undiluted pleasure. The only extra I had were a set of wheel spacers to get an extra 2" on the wheelbase.

 

I once chased a Ford Zephyr all the way from Southport to Wigan and was just about to overtake him when a small sign popped up in his rear window with the words Police-Stop on it. " I'm on my way to a call he said "whats your excuse for driving like an idiot". He let me off with a "don't kill yourself sonny" and a very sneaky grin on his face. I must have looked as if I'd seen a ghost.

Classic! Awesome story mate! :) Yep, they were a great car. I used like how I could scream up to a corner, slam it into 2nd and compression slide it around n slam back up into 3rd and be gone :)
