1. Does the Monogram svt convertible have a tub interior
2. If so anyone know if it will fit the AMT cobra body and chas?

2) With some trimming and careful reshaping of the convertible boot area and the sides, it will fit. Also, the floor areas (on the underside) may require a bit of shaving to fit properly.

I'm rejuvenating this build project with the 1994 Cobra Indy Pace. I did a nose swap onto the '95 GT Hardtop. That's in primer right now... Here's some internals.

That's all that matters,it isn't some car that's gunna sit in someone's garage collecting dust,it's your model build (besides,I likes it too )

I wonder if the Canadian Intake said 5.0 LITRE lol... little kit humor. But yeah I got some more done on the internals, and the body took a trip to the purple pond ...Also started the very basics of the GT Convertible...

Sorry about the body...I have a frame (non-Mustang) soaking as we speak,hate when that happens,LOL! Interior's startig to look familiar to my eye (and looking good )

Thanks lol I'm trying to figure out how I want to do the Tan/Black on the GT Convert. I don't know if i want to brush the black on, but the masking would be a real bear if i elect to spray...

Finally got a good weekend of serious bench-work and did some more on this one. Shot the stripped chrome tree with my aluminum spray. An got my chassis rolling. The rear end is a lil bit fiddly, but went well. Forgot to snap pics though, but all the fit is nice up front as well. I also got the convert in primer, but I'll post some on that after this is closer to done. Still unsure of interior layout for the convertible.

My favorite era of mustangs! I'll be headed to the hobby shop this week to pick me up a car to get in on this. I cant wait.

Just picked up a few more of the re-issue 1999 Cobra and a few of the Monogram 94-95GT issues.

I finished the Cobra before my hiatus, but the body really isn't anything to be excited about and It may be taken apart for the good bits. It really wasn't worth the effort, I should have just built a hardtop from the AMT kit and been happy with that..
But I'm starting a new project that should actually WORK. (I'm doing mine in white with white wheels)
I'm taking the Saleen Speedster kit and putting a roof on from the Monogram GT kit. I'm not a big convertible fan, so this makes sense. Here's what's cooking so far.
I also removed the engine compartment sides from the interior tub and fixed them into the body to make it easier to have them be body color during paint process.

Oooh. I like this thread!
I've got a black '94 GT that I'm hoping to replicate soon!
Just bought a monogram '94 GT off ebay (Never seen the monogram one before!) and it was cheap, so I'll add it to my AMT '94 GT as well.
Now if someone only made Bullitt wheels in deep dish and regular dish I'd be set!
