This is a review of the Ford Escort Zakspeed Gr.2.


The little 4 cylinder engine is well engraved. I was a little disappointed that there was no distributor.


Interior is wonderfully engraved and everything fits perfectly. There’s seat belt decals for the driver seat. The kit also had seat belt latches but they weren’t supposed to be used.


Body was crisp and clean with no flash. I used a wonderful Tru-Color Grabber Blue because the kit is a Ford. A 2-part urethane clear was used to finish the paint.


The suspension parts are separate from the chassis pan as is the exhaust system. There’s really not much detail to the chassis or suspension.


The instructions are several pages long with suggested paint color for specific parts.

This was a very enjoyable kit to work on. Although meant to be a race car, I wanted a street version so the holes in the deck lid were filled and only interior decals used.

Thank you to IPMS for allowing me to review this kit.
