It has been proposed that a joint venture between Silas Models of France and British Heritage Models of England should produce a 1/18 scale version of the Mk 2 Cortina, to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the introduction of the original car, in 2016.


Initial suggestions are that the model would be based on the 4-door saloon. To achieve economies of scale, the proposed 200 (?) units of the LIMITED EDITION would cover three models in that range: the 1600E, the 1600GT and the 1600 Super.


No prices are available yet but the model would be up to the usual standards of Silas excellence and value for money. There will be no opening doors etc.


This announcement is a 'toe in the water' exercise to judge demand for such a model. If you are keen to register your interest, please contact me for further details: T 01244 320761 or email [email protected].


Regards to all,

    I do think there should be a 1/18 scale Cortina but it has to be the mk3, GXL or 2000E model, if this was made in 1/18 scale form it would sell in massive amounts that I am sure!
