"I decided the engine should be a 6 speed..."

So, how many cylinders does the transmission have? ;)

Message editted ...Oh and ah by the way... :P once again!! :lol:

Haven't had much time lately to work on this. It's inventory time and I have been putting in many hours at work.
Also, having a bit of trouble deciding how wild to go with the build.

Since, Revell has finally announced that they will be producing a New 1/25th scale Mustang Coupe.
I guess that I don't need to worry about how bad I mess this one up, as I'll be able to build several more,
in the future. (Assuming the Mayans are wrong of course :P )

So I will be blowing the dust off this one and working on it when I can, to try and get it done before the new coupes come out so I can build it's "Little Brother".

Since there will be so many other coupes soon I am thinking this one will need something to help it stand out in a crowd other then it's sheer size (1/24th instead of 1/25th) and glaring inaccuracies! (LOL!)

Thoughts or ideas?

Anyhow...

Thought about the engine a little more. I'll be using a 6 pack intake, to go with the 6 speed transmission...

Frankenstang! I love it! Great job on the mod-to-fit. Everything seems to line up pretty good. Can't wait to see more.

Well, much like Tim (The Tool Man) Taylor I have decided the car needs more power, so I'll be adding a high rise to the 6 barrel...

I am not sure what kit the high rise came from? (The Revell 1969 Shelby maybe?) It was in a box of parts acquired off that e-auction site.
I ground it down, and added some sheet styrene so that I could have a base for the dual (custom made ) superchargers.

Work progresses painfully slow on this one, but I am determined to see it's completion.

I have sourced a set of resin seats, and a roll bar, which I will manipulate into a 6 - 10 point cage.
