Moffat Rs3100 Capri Sports Sedan

Recommended Posts

Continuing on the Sports Sedan theme I have been working a little while on converting a Team Slot resin RS2600 Capri into Allan Moffat's RS3100 version. The original body isn't great but I'm hoping that a little plastic card and Milliput will put that right. Will progressively post pics during the build. It's a bit rough at the moment but it should work out OK.

"Okay". Since when does an Allan Moffat car only look "okay"? It'll look fantastic mate! :)

 

I eagerly await the outcome! :lol:

OK. Here is an updated pic. Have trimmed front spoiler and added apron, added side skirts and rear spoiler and filled in guards. Just need to do the detail sanding now before applying the first primer coat. It's a bit on the roughish side at the moment but it's getting there.

Lucky he has almost 3 weeks to get it finished before the series starts!

Yes, come on Bruce, you could always put a Celicia chassis under it!!! After all it won't be the first Ford product you own that reminds us all of a Celicia :)

Here's two more for you

 

Great pics Gary. I have a fairly extensive selection of photos of the car in my Moff scrap book as well. I'm working my way towards building one of each of Moffat's race cars.

Not a bad driver in his day. Have you got any pics of him in his Escort? He even won a round of the TransAm series in the States in a Cortina beating off the likes of V8 Stangs Mopars and Chevs. 1966 if my memory serves me right.

Pics of Moff in the Escort are almost impossible to find, at least colour ones are. We have several black and white ones.

 

small nails: I was just checking your posts!

The Racing Geoghegans DVD has some excellent colour footage of Moff's Escort at Warwick Farm - that is the next project after the 65E XY.

Gary now what colour is it? Red and white or red and silver or most probably red and gold as it was an EX Allan Mann car. It was later painted red and then red and white. It only seems to have competed at Calder here in Australia.
