Looks like I need to get my WIP backlog cleared up so I can pull out the SN-95s and FOXs I've got in the stash...plus a couple of other Mustangs, like a 2006 and 1965!

Yeah,get em going! :D

I haven't done anything more to mine since last post...been going round n round with the shop that butchered my 1:1 and the parts store that sold me bad parts (but won't honor the extra labor I have to pay because of their bad parts) all week...sigh. :wacko: HOPE to get some done this week coming though (no work tomorrow probably,wife's birthday :P )

These, and the ever-interfering work schedule, are the reason it takes ME so long to build anything. I would rather enjoy the time outside while I can, before winters Icy chill sentences me to a prison stay of doldrums locked in the house. Sadly, I don't have too many friends here in Ohio, so that isn't too much of a distraction (except for when the ones I do want to go yank a motor from a salvage yard or go shooting...sometimes both in the same day,I AM IN!). I was in Toledo yesterday for the NNL/Toy Show, so while no building was done, I did gather some more stash materials!

Whenever more is done, you have a place to show it (and people looking out for it!).

Thanks for the encouraging words,my friend.

About 5 or so hours after you were posting that,I was smacking a fallen tree hanging about forhead level (wasn't there last ride I had there...but that was 4-5 months ago when I lived that way before the fire),doing about 22 MPH. Saw it just in time to look down (no time to duck),saving face (literally,LOL). Split my helmet (I wanted a new one anyways :P ),but I didn't wreck. I was riding alone,BTW. Dazed n disoriented,but knowing I wasn't right,I pedaled back the way I came (about 6 miles,way closer than going on around),and had 2 minor mishaps I wouldn't have had I not been dazed,lost a bit of shin skin (I remember that one),and have a puncture about dime sized,along with moderately severe trail rash (think,road rash but with dirt imbedded instead of gravel from pavement) and deep bruising in the left rear thigh (thankfully,have no memory of that one,hahaha!).

Drove to the ER (where thankfully,they're familiar with my spinal injuries,having been my local doctor's office in that hospital),had an xray confirmed mild concussion,as well as knocked my cervical spinal area (my problem area anyways,why I'm "disabled") out of whack. They spent the next few hours slowly manipulating the cervicals back into (my normal) alignment (which is screwed anyways where I broke the neck a decade ago). I'm doing OK today,a bit stiff and sitting is still tender,but boy howdy am I milking it for all it's worth :blink: :P :lol:

No worries...this by FAR ain't the first time I's been slammed when doing something I love outdoors,LOL,and I'm used to a bit of constant pain in the neck area anyways,so it's all good,so long as the wife doesn't think about what coulda been with my old injuries.

In my absense from the bench though,it's been converted to a junk table :wacko: :angry: ,I'm going to have to clean it off. I did get another shipment in from eBay today though (last one for a while),including a sealed NIB MPC '79 Pace Car kit :D

OK,sorry,rambling a bit. I almost never take my (prescribed) pain meds,but been "on schedule" with them since Sunday when I got home,makes me blabberfinger a bit :rolleyes:

Sounds like you got pretty well blasted! At least it wasn't any worse than what you got, as a broken neck could have left you sipping meals through a straw the rest of your life (especially considering your prior injury to that area). No worries; my work benches (read: any flat surface in the house the cats haven't already claimed as theirs) are covered with half-started projects and the scrap of kitbashing/scratchbuilding.

I even have a few SN95s I need to get completed............maybe I need to just sit one day and finish them up!

No work done on em since last update. My ability to ride bikes comes in spells,so since I'm enjoying a good spell lately (despite that tree trying to behead me,LOL),been doing more pedalling than anything,LOL! It can't last much longer though (it never does),I'll get back on these soon. Until then however,more of this...

Just thought id add in my 1997 AMT SVT Cobra Mustang kit. I love late model mustangs 1st and foremost, but i bought a 1:1 real 1998 Cobra Mustang Coupe and knew there was a 1:24/25 kit out there. So i found it on ebay and made a replica of the car i just bought. What do ya think?

Looks good Ryan, both the real Cobra and the scale rendition!

I am going through a 1996 4.6L DOHC motor myself, twin-turboing it, 5.0L stroking it, and sticking it down into my 1991GT. This is a long-term project, but all the big pieces are in my garage!

Welcome to the Forum and the SN95 build thread!

Has ANYone built,or make parts to convert a Revell '99 Cbra into one of these ('04 MACH I)?
Posted Image
Or even one of these ('01 Bullitt in black,one of two optional colors that year)?
Posted Image

I'm going to begin looking for a clean '01 Bullitt,'03-'04 MACH (in the Grabber Blue or Orange-renamed-colors),or an '08 Bullitt in the Spring of '13...I doubt I'll trade my '94 in,just keep it for daily driving.

Anyways,wht would be involved in replicating something like these from that kit?

The Bullitt would require converting the 1999 Cobra lower front bumper back to a GT Bumper (might be able to use the earlier 94-95 with some slight mods grafted to the 99 upper) and a hood scoop modified from one of the 87-89GT Mustangs from AMT/MPC and sit on the modified Cobra hood. Wheels could be either the 2008 Bullitts with a slight lip added or a set of aftermarket Torques.

As to the Mach 1, well.............I am still working on a parts list/fit for that!
