We could cover every generation of Mustang, and would have participation in all of them! IF that were to happen, it would have to be 1964.5-73 (First Gen), 1974-78 (Second Gen), 1979-94 (Third Gen, we have going), 1994-2004 (Forth Gen, also going), 2005 to present (fifth Gen, also going on right here!). I say go for it.


I (personal opinion here) am glad to see 1979-2012 represented, as Late models seem to always be looked on with lack of love, unlike the First-Gen cars (1964.5-1973). Now, a truly unloved Mustang was the Second-gen 1974-78. THOSE cars need some love!

Well here is a little update, since I was waiting for the tire and wheels to get here from japan, I really did not want to do a lot work on the chassis in-tell the tires/wheels got here so I would know what the fit would be, and if I there would be any fit issues.

The tires and wheels are here and just doing a real quick mock up show that there wont be in fit issues, and I wont have to trim the inside wheel wells .

The intereior and chassis is painted, I am not finished painting the chassis yet, but I am not happy with how either look so far, been having a bit of bad time with painting lately .

Got some more , the chassis is almost complete, got the tires and wheels fitted, I had to trim some off the sides of the rear axle to get the tires in the wheel well more. Its a close fit, any more I would have to trim the inside of the wheel well. I swapped out the front brakes for a bigger set, as the kit ones look way to small with this wheel set.

I painted the wheels black, but I need to give them another coat as I chip some of the paint off. The body is painted and I will say that it is not one of my better paint jobs, I need to clear it still then I am going to wet sand and polish it, maybe I can get it to look better.

IDK if I would say "lack of love"...from '79 to present there's almost a cult-like following (at least in 1:1). I'm all for adding CBP's of the other gens not currently ongoing here! I think it's an awesome idea. Of course,here lately (as in,this year,LOL) I've been having trouble getting me to sit at the bench and build...but I have a few ongoing and a couple wanting started.

I also have several parts cars for the S197's (what survived the house fire back in June,not complete kits sadly),one in the stash ('08 Bullitt),and at least one of each on lay-away ('06 GT,all the Shelby varients,and a '10) that I should have already paid\picked up already (soon!). I say go for it,especially with the open end date (as in "to infinity and beyond!" ;) )

Shhhh Rick, you're blowing our cover!

In all honesty, most guys who build model Mustangs seem to concentrate on the early cars. Whenever a late model Mustang in scale is posted, it is largely ignored. Having their own build threads ensures that they get the love they deserve!

GT500 looks AWESOME,Jonathon!!! :D :D :D

Rick,I used to run the roads in a four-eyed Fox myself,and wouldn't mind another! If I can't find the perfect minitruck for a daily (to save the mileage on the GT,and to haul bikes and such with),I hope to find another ol Fox (four eyes or not-4 banger automatic...4 banger for MPG's,slushbox so Mama can drive it on occasion as well B) )...I can slap a 3 bike roof rack on there,and when I need to haul trash and such,fold the rear seats down,slap a hitch on the GT and tow the trailer (which I currently have no way of towing... :blink: ) when I need to haul something big,teeheehee!

I gots me one of them 2010 GT's on layaway (along with a buttload of Stang kits lost in the house-fire) that I'll be paying on this weekend,picking up soon :)

Got some work done on the 2010, I got a good part of the chassis painted( going by pics from the build review on the 1/16th one).
I have to say that this one of my better paint jobs, I took the pic just after I finished painting it. There are a few spots that I need to sand and re spray, I have only put down one wet coat so far.

Very nice colour Jonathan, i was thinking about getting the 2010 stang as iv had a few of the other 05 onwards stang's but i need to know if some of the parts like chassis interior ect are interchangable, im guessing some are but if they are il be sticking a GT500 engine and interior straight in the 2010 stang then start custom work on the body.

Decklan, allow me to spend money for you by telling you that Revell has released their 2010 GT500 kit to stores. No need to transplant any part back and forth, unless you have them already. If so, the earlier GT500 powertrain will swap nicely into the 2010GT.

Sadly, these car suffer from too shallow of wheelwells, both front and rear. The 1:1 cars can swallow up 20"x10" fronts, and the rears have seen 22"x12". Their scale brethren, however, cannot even swallow the stock wheels well, let alone aftermarket sets (I:E.....Pegasus, Aoshima, Fujimi) without massive surgery to do so. Lowering only complicates this matter more. I am still working on a proper fix for the fronts, but the rears have proven to be do-able with a razor-saw, #11 Exacto, and some styrene surgery/relocation/addition.

Are you talking about the big scale GT500,or have they released a this scale version? I'm going to the LHS that was semi-local to the old house today to pic up a layaway (that's long overdue-it includes all the S197's I lost in the fire and a 2010 GT),I'll look see if they have one (this scale...as much as I love the GT500's I won't be building a big scale,don't enjoy em as much) Now I'm all anxious!

Man! I hope he's talkin the smaller scale GT500. If so I'm all over it. As far as i know i have at least one of each of the 05 to 09 kits and plan to continue with the 10+
decided on my 10 I'm gonna match her to her 05 sister
Posted Image
I styled her to look like a 67 as ya see cause that's what I see when I look at an 05. Now on this '10 i can't decide if I want to take out the GT grille or use it to my advantage to give the car a 70 look. Hehe. We'll see where that goes when i can pull out the 70 body to start eyeballin the 2. If i decide not to use the 70 styling I will cut out the grille and those obnoxious fog lights and install a modded 68 grille in. If i got the 70 route another thing I may do to keep the style will be filling on the rear quarter glass and replacing it with a 69/70 quarter glass either an aftermarket style applique or an actual cut out window
