Hi all.  My 8 year old girl completed this Revell Mustang.  It is her first model (I helped just a little).  The only pink paint I had was some ancient brush-on Pactra paint.  It was brushed on, sanded, and clear coated!  She did a great job with the decals too.  She wants to get another model, which is cool.

I think the kid did a fine job. And the pink is very girly-girl. I'm sure that your daughter had a good experience. Good, clean fun.

Great build; and the best part; a rock-solid connection and memory with your daughter!  I raised 2 of them; now they're both grown up and have started their own lives, but I still have some memories like these!  Good job, dad!

Thanks guys!  She has an artsy side, but I don't think she'll have quite the car bug that I do!  She's really enjoying reading the feedback!

She really did a nice clean job of building this mustang.

 

Great to see kids building and even better to see the big smile.

Cute little girl! Paint came out fantastic! My daughter just turned sixteen, and never took an interest in cars like us. (of course she's ready for a 1:1 now)  You are a lucky Dad.

Great job on the model! WARNING - In eight more years she'll want you to buy her a real one like that! :lol:

The paint looks great - can't believe it's brushed on! Nice work, both of you!
