Thanks,Jonathan-nice to see I'm remembered :D

IDK if I can say "back",might be too strong of a word-there are some changes (potentially) coming to my household that will put me packing things up (either way,actually...*) and I hate to start on a fresh build knowing this but not knowing how long I have before that comes. Isn't it always the way though...I'm kinda ITCHING to build these last couple days :P :lol:

I was thinking today though,I may have enough time to finish a couple on-gong or otherwise stalled builds (Bullitt included). It all depends on the time between then and now.

*That's really all I wanna say on open forum,check your PM bo,ol friend :)

Finally got the interior finished. Mostly stock with the addition of a Hurst shifter with T-handle, front seat belts, and I painted the seats in a black and red two-tone. You can also see what the exterior color will be, Ford Cardinal Red, though I haven't done any detail painting yet.

Well got some more done. Chassis painted satin black and Ford Sunburst Gold Metallic, along with silver details and foiled heat shields.
Posted Image

Added the chassis portion of the axle stabilizer bar, as well as extended the bracket for the stabilizer bar itself.
Posted Image

Made my own lower control arms using the centers from the kit and scratchbuilt ends.
Posted Image

Axle with lower control arm brackets added. Still have to add the stabilizer bar bracket and shock absorber brackets.

Very nice work so far, looking good, I am not in to the bigger scales, but there is something about this one that makes me want to get the kit

It's not a bad kit by any stretch, I hear from others who built it that it practically falls together, and I agree for the parts that I've kept kit stock. :P I just can't stand having a kit at this scale and having not only a static suspension, but static steering as well.

I agree, I am not surprised that it falls together, the 1/25 version does as well.

The building of the interior can be a pain in the arse as I found out on the Red one I did. The slots for the door panels can be fiddly. But the rest of the kit yeah, its nicely designed lol.

True, I have had problems with the interiors, but not enough to say its a hard kit to build, I want to say its one of the better Revell kits to build (all 06-10 mustang kits)

Oh its not enough to label 'hard' heavens no. Just a lil awkward how they did the panels. But yeah its a well thought out design. Not AS well thought as their Italia kit. Now that thing is brainless to fit together lol

I'm just starting work on a more-or-less box stock build of the '10 GT Ragtop snap kit...
Posted Image
...I just need something to get me going,LOL! :P

I've got the body smoothed of those 4 pesky mold lines,and the body/chassis prepped for spray/primer (ie: washed/drying with dish soap and warm H2O),should be shooting primer soon :)

Me too. I wanted a few of these when released,one for the Boy,a few for me (one to build box stock,one each for a full detail conversion o the GT and GT500 into ragtops),this one will be the box-stock build-I NEED to get smething built,LOL! :P

The body is pretty decent,only 4 noticable mold lines,so once I got those smoothed I shot the initial primer (not doing the gold,or molded color thing :wacko: ).

I haven't shot pics yet,but the interior's almost done(building assembly IS done,it's straight from the box,but I have some paint detailing to do yet),I'll shoot pics in a bit or tomorrow. So far,so good...no interest lost,LOL! :P :lol:

And I shot the first coats of color (Duplicolor Ford Cardinal Red-same color code as my 1:1 '94 GT ragtop in my signature was B) ). Not the best pic I've ever posted...I miss my old camera :(
Posted Image

Haven't decided on stripes if any (I have to choose from; stickers included in this kit,and decals from the GT hardtop kit). More to come...
