Completed for my neighbour who has an unhealthy obsession with cheesy 80's Fords and 2 Capri Lasers.

Nice one, the Capri certainly takes me back to the early days of my driving - not that I could afford one back then. There is a huge interest in classic Fords these days, in the UK at any rate and certainly the prices for even cooking models of vehicles like the Escort and Capri are hitting the roof - Mexico/RS versions are in the stratosphere!

Excellent build!

I bought a Capri from the auctions at Blackbushe back in about 1980; I remember paying £75 and it broke down before we got home to Woodley.....

Thanks guys.
To be fair a 75 quid car making it that far isn't bad :)
Although I've bought and sold cars about that price back in the 80's that did surprisingly well for a while.

Great build. A kit i searched for for years when I was a member of the Capri Club International. I've owned a few of Fords finest.

All the best.

Thanks, I never even knew this kit existed until it came up on a swap deal with newish Mustang I think, I passed on that as I prefer proper old 70's muscle cars and went for this one for my neighbour.
