The Tickford Capri 1:18 Scale Model Project

 

A company called PremiumX Models made a limited edition of 500 1:43 scale
Tickford Capris in red and white.
 
They are long-since out of stock, but sometimes come up for sale on eBay,
the most recent reaching a price of  157 in September 2017.

The popular Tickford Capri Group on Facebook has started looking into the feasibility
of commissioning a 1:18 version of the Tickford Capri.
 
A model-maker has been found who is prepared to build a prototype for evaluation
and appropriately, this model is going to be based on the original Tickford
prototype / Motorshow car FMJ624Y.
 
Steve Saxty and Russell Arundell (Build 100) are co-ordinating the project
and are looking to keep the cost to around 150 per car.
 
The models would be produced in very limited numbers and there may be
the option to have models crafted to match individual build numbers.

Tickford Capri using a 1:18 Norev car kindly donated
to the project by Steve Saxty.

 

 
Oh no......hang on......that was the real one!
 
 
 
The resemblance is quite un-canny!
