I thought I'd posted this in the wee small hours last night, anyway I can't find it so here goes attempt MkII

Anyone dealt/bought/built/dated their sister/etc with this mob? Belkits.

Some intresting subjects, for me the Opel Manta is of interest. Hopefully more Opels and some Vauxhalls will follow.

Some good reviews here Chris, nothing on the Opel. I think its due late this year. Ive heard really good things about the kits and they are always sold out on pre-order at the model shop in my village.
The owner also runs a Facebook group selling models (model kits for less) and they go like hot cakes on there.

Only have one of their kits Chris..... the MkI Escort but from what I see it looks like a good kit. Nice crisp and in proportion moulding on the body. Curbside of course but you can get an under bonnet trans kit for it which I also have. It too looks good.

Trans-kit

Be aware though, you only get ONE engine. You need to specify which one.

The Manta is due end of this year which probably means early next year!!!

No engines, but otherwise very good kits, a tad expensive though.

Thanks gents. Looks like I'll be waiting for 2017 and the Manta. At least I'll have the money saved by then.
