If you’re thinking: “Hey, he’s never done a biplane before, that’s cool! Something new!”, well, you’re wrong. I do have biplanes, and I’ll get to them eventually, but this is not the day. However, I am talking about a very unusual and hard to find kit, and that is a Tamiya kit that has a full engine! Even though most of their stuff is, in fact, curbsiders, Tamiya did go “all the way” for a couple of kits.
In this case, the lucky car is the 1985 Ford Sierra XR4i, the sporty two-door version of Ford of Europe’s successful saloon. With aero styling and a conspicuous double wing on the rear hatch, the XR4i Sierra shares some close stylistic relations with the SVO Mustang of the same period. Check out this rather elusive bit of Eurotech-by-way-of-Japan on the Out of Box page!
