And back again with #4 in my random MMPs! today we're going to see a bit of Maisto's Ello Yello* Focus ST Mk.3
*not sure if this is the official name for the paint scheme..
Looking good there!
Maisto's 1:64 line of diecast have been a bit of a.. well, a disappointment for me.. it's like they want to make a competitor to Mattel's offering but stopped trying in the middle.. although they do give some great casting once in a while, castings like their CLK-GTR and Ford Raptor as examples..
But now, let's take a look at the Fie... uh i mean Focus!
i always loved this Gen's look, with my biggest gripe is the gaping grille (something that the facelift helped tremendously), so i get a bit surprised when i saw something yellow hangin on the pegs..
Maisto did quite a good job on this casting, they give the headlamp (AND TAIL LAMP) details, and the foglamps are not forgotten too.. (i only did the white lights on the tail lamp, the other's came straight from the factory)
though as with most Maisto in this range, they need to fix their wheels.. not only does it feel cheap, it is also flimsy as hell, though luckily, it bear a bit of a resemblance to the real ST, so it gets a pass from me..
also to note, their Focus is HUGE, atleast compared to the HW's Fiesta and Focus ST
Ford, Go Further.
also, for your amusement..
a fish eye filter goes wrong..
