“Russell Lord, a jeweller of over 45 years from Essex, has a passion for all things Ford. So much so that he has spent around 700 hours of his time producing this little gem of a model escort!
The model is based on the Rothmans Ivered car which was piloted by Ari Vatanen during the halcyon days of the 1980’s. Russell estimates the same number of hours will be required to complete the model and it will feature an array of diamonds and sapphires as well as gold, silver and platinum throughout the build.
Once competed, Russell intends to show the car at events throughout the UK so that fans can view it and make charity donations should they wish. Eventually it will be sold at auction to be announced in due course, with the money going to a children’s charity.
The detail in this model is an absolute credit to him and we can’t wait to see the finished piece!”
