Holy cow - the shareholders are going to be very, very happy.

 

But the wife wont be!

 

Great work Marco, I wish you all the best for releasing these cars.


Love,

I like it when a hunch plays out - I was holding out on the the Wurth Capri, hoping that there'd be a Mampe Hans Heyer version (goes back to the days of making the Tamiya 1/24 static kit / Moff's '79 Federation Falcon)

 

So that, and the Lancia will make a colorful pair....

There's only two questions:

 

1. What direction do you go

2. What's the Lap Record?

"One of each, please!"

 

How about the Mampe Escort Marco? You know you want to!

 

I made some progress on my Wurth car on the weekend, can't wait to see what times it does at Ged's, 3.459 best last week, and with a straightened chassis and (now round) BRM rubber I'm anticipating 3.2's, which is generally NSR only territory in this limited level of modification.....


My mum says I'm an excellent driver

SW17 - Capri Zakspeed Mampe - DRM Hockenheim 1978 - Hans Heyer

 

This model shows the new body style relevant to early Capri Zakspeed as raced in the 1978 and 1979 racing season.

The main differences are narrower air exits on the bonnet, missing aerodynamic fins on the bonnet and closed rear bumper. Racer hopes this also satisfies the collectors point of view with this level of detail.

 

Couple more shots to keep you interested ......

Hi guys, thanks everibody.

Just as additional information, Mampe version will be the last Capri Zakspeed liverie for this year.

We are actually completing works on 935/78 Moby Dick of which I will display some image soon.

Hopefully we also should be ready before the end of year with the IMSA Mustang GTP.

 

P.S. Gr5 Escort is not in the plan actually, sorry. We will see for the future

Ciao from Italy

Marco

Unbeliveable demand for the Grp5 Capri,Sideways have a real winner on their hands with this beauty. This is my first edition to Sideway's models for the collection and it wont be my last. Will be getting all the Capri's

I would appreciate [someones] theory on why the Capri has plastic front wheels [e.g. no set screw]

 

 

approx 4 bucks each and lighter aren't the answers I'm seeing.

there aren't full white kits like the Slot.it ones, just bodies and chassis as individual parts. So you'd have to build it up.

 

- the place you may come unstuck is right wheels and inserts.

The wheels are a fairly standard sort of size, but I'm not sure what insert you'd use.

The insert with the wheels has 2 parts, the inner part, and a chrome rim, which it needs to finish it off.

 

Alternately, buy a car, flog the body to someone who crashes a lot :) . . and buy a body kit....

I do like the idea of just a replacement body being available (as Slot.it does). This was a very handy option for me. My very first Slot.it (Loctite McLaren) is one I still like to give some track time but the body was looking rather tired after the past few years of use. The white body kit, some paint and a sheet of Pattos decals has it looking new again.
