I stumbled across a new Focus ST model the other day as far as I am aware its the first (possibly only) 1/18 scale model.

It is a plastic model but from a distance (I will let you make your own judgement as to what distance!) it looks really good in my opinion. The one I have doesnt look out of place next to a 1/18 WRC version costing way more!

Also just for an idea of the size of the thing here is a comparison with one of the 1/32 models that have been doing the rounds for the past year or so.

Its no Minichamps by any means but it looks decent in my display case.

If you are interested I did manage to get another which I have popped on ebay.

Oh yeah! Doh!
Well they were new to me.

Trist:
WRC Model is one of the Sun Star ones. Is a really nice model. Also got a VK Stobart one from the same range. I got it from a rally event at Croft but think most model shops stock them now. Oh and the M Sport shop!

I havent seen one mate perhaps 'hawkeye' Allan has


No I have seen a Minichamps facelift one in orange and a white one with the full blue stripes on. Both look superb. They are all the smaller 1/43 size excellent detail though.
