It is a 1987 model. Ford Australia had a free hand with the Falcons since the late 60's, and the badge is still going to this day.

Look here for more details, http://www.geocities.com/falconfacts/falcon/xffalcon.html

I was just thinkimng that a few months ago, they're doing all thse retro remakes nowadays but no sign of Mad Max.
That thought spurred us on to have a Mad Max party just last night, lotsa beer and all 3 movies, cool!

I like it, although I probably would make the YPLX the same font size as the roadnumber, maybe even a little bigger. The color scheme is good, wonder how it would look tiger striped? :lol:

I like it too,but I would make the YPLX at least the same size as the road number but preferably even bigger.

Thanks for the Aussie Falcon link.

Thanks guys, the roadname would be made bigger if I ever did paint a loco in these colours.

Actually I might try some tiger stripes on the end views and along the frame edge.

The beauty of PC's, i'm not wasting paint to get the effects I want.
