Are you kidding me Al???? That car looks simply beautiful! :shock: :shock: :shock: What a fantastic job on that car, and I'm not even a huge fan of the 64-66 'Stangs. That car looks simply awesome though. You sure did that thing justice!!! Keep up the fantastic work!!! :D :D :D

Sorry no underhood pics it's glued shut. This model was sort of an experiment. This was the first time I used this kind of paint so it was a quick build, just a shelf model. It won't be the last one I use this paint on.
Thanks to all who commented on it.

Thats beautiful!

How did you get so much detail into the dashboard? Is that all done with a paintbrush and magnifying lens??

wow nice!

Harvezter, I do use a powerful magnifier. For guages I use flat arcrylic craft paint for the backgrounds and artist colored pencils for the numbers and needles. This is a little tricky but remember to keep the pencils as sharp as possible and use very light pressure on them. Use the best pencils you can find, I buy mine at a local art supply store. Most of the chrome is done with a artist paint marker with a .003 tip but if possible I do use BMF but not on this Mustang. I almost always put a key in the ignition switch. It just gives it that finished look. My best advise is to practice.
