OK so I've modified this post. This was going to be a 12 hour fun run between friends but I got called into work 6 hours in and ruined my day Lol. So here is 6 hours worth of work plus a little preview. I know most have built or are going to build this car and mine will fall very short of the master builds y'all make but here's my rushed flavor of this car. Hopefully Friday when I'm off I can get all my decals and detail work done and put this one under the glass and start a new build. Any tips of back tracking to make improvements and any feed back good,bad and in between will be very much appreciated ...thanks for looking y'all and maybe the wife can get some work done on her charger and update her post. God bless

I think one suggestion is figure out beforehand what colors you'll be painting everything, since then you can paint all like-colored parts at once. Also, perhaps paint the body first since if the paint somehow gets messed up, then you'll have time to redo it.

Yeah got my one coat on hand since it dries so fast and the interior is already someone up to my satisfaction as far as the color its molded in so I may just not paint the interior and just do some detail work possibly on the inside not sure how good it will  look but  seems ok in theory in my head at least

Perfect timing ...I get called into work 6 hours into my 12 hour build ....just wasted a 70 dollar model. Guess now that the little for fun only contest at least for me is done, I'll have a chance to go back through and do a little detailing I otherwise would not had time to do. Oh well. I'm sure I'll have another chance.

Well now that I don't have a deadline anymore on this car I can actually get some decent results out of it. Its at least looking like a mustang now but need one solid day with it and call it done. Get all me decals and trim work done and case it up and start on a full detail build of a 1/12 john player special 72 d

Good work. I'm now wondering if modeling should be an Olympic event. Definitely a winter game.
