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

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.

Hi guys,

Long time has gone, but we are back on track with the GTi project :)
We are on to finish the demonstration model, to get ready to show partners, which could produce the modelcar.
We are on the detailing of the model, to collect as many details, as its possible, to create an advanced model.

I would kindly ask for interior reference pictures - for the seats, door inserts, etc.
We would like to create more variations.
Now we have a general seat and steering wheel, which looks cool, but its not the real.

I would like to also kindly ask if you know, what wheels were used for the SA310 GTi? It was only one type of rim used, or there were more option for that?

Howsie13,

Thank you, your photos would be welcome!
You can send them in the Facebook site of Mr. Wolff's garage - as I remember, you have joined?
We are looking for the photos of the Redline GTi regularly! They were and are great help for the development of the model.
