New Italeri Kits - Ford Escort Zakspeed, Mercedes Benz Sk 1844, Mercedes Benz 190E | CompetitionX

New for the early part of July are these 3 new kits from Italeri – the Ford Escort Zakspeed GR.2, Mercedes Benz SK 1844 LS V8 and the Mercedes Benz 190E 2.4 16v.

The Ford Escort is stunning and is based on the 1977/1978 Zakspeed Team-built ride that featured some very racy options. Wide, flared fenders, a front spoiler, side-exhaust and the removal of both bumpers gave the Escort an all-business look. This kit is 1/24 scale, a Level 2 build and comes molded in blue, black and clear and a single plated-parts tree.

The next kit up from Italeri is this 1/24 scale Mercedes BenzSK 1844 LS V8 tractor truck. The SK, or Schwere Klasse, designated this truck as a heavy vehicle in this range and had a few upgrades to make it more suitable for long journeys. It is a Level 5 build and comes molded in black, white and clear as well as one plated tree. There are also 3 different livery versions included.

The final ride is the Mercedes Benz 190E 2.3 16v. It is modeled after the original 190 which was Mercs entry-level sedan. It did, however include many styling and technical innovations for the time. It is molded in 1/24 scale, is a Level 3 build and comes with black, clear and light grey parts trees. It also comes with a decal sheet that allows you to build it one of 2 ways – standard street version of the 1984 Nurburgring Race of Champions edition.
