The Italeri Ford Escort RS1800 Mk.II Model Kit from the plastic model kit range accurately recreates the classic vehicle. This model requires paint and glue to complete.
The Ford Escort Mk 2 was launched in 1975. The Mk. II was a significant evolution compared to the Escort Mk. I that debuted at Brussels Motor Show in January 1968. It used the same reliable mechanical components as the Mk. I but adopted a new design based on a squared-style look which was part of the aesthetic and stylistic taste of the '70s.
To compete successfully in the World Rally Championship, a dedicated model, the RS 1800, was introduced to complete the line-up. Successful results have been achieved: the team that got the second place in the world-famous Monte Carlo Rally in 1979 won the World Rally Championship at the end of the year. The Motosport team also achieved excellent results with the other team, ranked fifth in the Monaco 1979 sport event, formed by Mikkola Hannu and Hertz Arnee.
