I have now got my last build for 2012 finished. l call it the lime snake. it is the revell 06 mustang, its done in hok lime time and ppg clear, it has a risen hood and a simulated scale decal across the top. the interior is done in model master afrika mustard. the trim around the windows are plainted flat black.  it needed another wax before l took pictures and it got waxed when l put it in the case. the front cover and overflow bottle would not work with the risen hood so it missing in the engine picture.

 

Not my best build but came out pretty good all comments welcome.......Slusher

Looks awesome Carl.
Great job buddy.
Love the hood on this body style, and the paint looks like it's a mile deep.
Keep up the good work.

Very cool Mustang Slusher!  I love it, it really has "the look". B)   The interior color goes perfectly with the lime paint, and I really like that Mach I style hood too, do you know who cast it?

 

Great build, thanks for sharing the pics,

Carl, your paint finishes continue to amaze me!  You're definitely a master at getting ultra smooth and shiny paint.  That color really looks good on the Mustang, and the scale stripe really sets it off.  Great work and thanks for sharing.
