Hi,

I'm Sándor, Suzuki Swift fan from Hungary.
I've just find redlinegti.com as I've looked for Mk 1 and Mk 2 GTi photos in the internet to step forward a project: to create and produce 1/43 scale resin models of Swift Mk 1 and Mk 2 GTi.

The modelling job is made by my friend Mik, I'm responsible for the prototyping and production.

I would ask for your help, to get good quality reference photos of both Mk 1 and Mk 2 GTi floor, undercarriage and suspension.
I can offer for your help 1 - 1 pieces of 3D printed test samples (1 pc Mk 1 and 1 pc Mk 2) and 1 - 1 pieces of pre-series resin models. ( Mk 1 if you share Mk 1 pictures and Mk 2 if you send me Mk 2 pictures)
:wink:

So I can give four models in all for those who share useable picuters of their car's floor / undercarriage / suspension. If there will be more, I will raise the number of the presents of course :wink:

It will take some time, to produce the final model, so I would ask patience for the delivery of the presents.

BTW, I'm just starting a diorama model company (to fund the modelcar business), named Mr.
Wolff's Garage: https://www.facebook.com/mrwolffsgarage/ - if you are interested in modelcars diorama, please check in my Facebook store (and later my webshop also)
My modelcar business is not public now, but if you like it, I will share with you guys :)

Best regards:
Sándor

Nice work, the area just in front of the Windscreen is a area with a grill for air so the bonnet does mot reach right to the screen as with later models .. will see what I can get you in the way of images

Like your Facebook page as well.

Dear Neo,

Thank you for draw our attention on that detail, really appreciate - I have forwarded it to Mik!

I saw your like on my page, thank you very much! The modelcar page is not open right now, but I will share it as soon as we have something to upload there.

Let me share some actual detail: Mik has just finished the door handle :)

De floor / undercarriage / suspension photos are highly needed - but also every mentions for details are warmly welcome. We want to make a detailed and realistic model line.

Sándor

Hi Sandor,

Project looks really good! I have a Mk1 and am happy to send you some photos of what you require.
I probably cannot help with the undercarriage very well as I do not have access to a hoist, however the floor and suspension I can do.
PM me your email address and I can send the photos there.

Looking good! Front and rear bumpers extend out more in an unmodified gti.
