In Topic: Harry's new Mustang.

15 March 2015 - 06:47 AM

I have been a Mustang freak ever since getting a 1965 Dinky toy as a kid! You have to know how cool the original looked to a kid growing up in the rural U.K in the early 60's.

I really like the 2005-2009 body style and never warmed to the 2010-2014 evolution. The bulbous, heavy look of the back of the later car doesn't match the sleek front. I will admit to being biased - I am lucky enough to have a 2008 Bullitt edition in the garage

I was impressed with the new car whenI  saw it at the Vancouver auto show a year ago. I am going to have to drive one - just to see how the new rear suspension works - and what difference another 100 HP feels like!

I am a little biased - I have a 2008 Bullitt edition in my garage. It's my retirement toy, never winter driven.

 

Harry - please show us what you picked...?

Very nice build Curt, did you use the decals for the front cover or did you paint it ? I have the kit and decals but I thought I would paint the front cover. I started prepping the body a while ago - a long term project !

I have not found many pictures of this car - I see you built it as an open car which I was wondering about.

Got any on line links for reference material ?

 

Great build - and inspiration too - thanks for posting it.

Thanks for posting - your build and the pictures are very inspirational. If my attempt is even half as good I will be delighted!

I like to think that I am a 'serious' modeller and I can get deeply involved with a detail build. I also like snap/pre-decorated kits too - they provide semi instant gratification when my latest serious project runs into a problem - repainting the body for the third time or something just doesn't fit. That's the time for pushing the frustrations aside and throwing a snapper together. I find this keeps the creative juices flowing and the hobby fun. I recommend it to everyone. Snappers don't have to be just for kids and beginners.

 

I have never built or bought a General Lee kit - just never appealed to me but I could see this kit in my stash for one of those quick fun and relaxing builds.
