So, with those weighing in on having theirs already, where are the pics?

 

If you don't mind crappy cell phone pics and the parts being covered in pizza sauce fingerprints, I can have some up in about 15 minutes :lol:

Pizza sauce? Thanks Brett, now I am hungry.   :)

 

I am not so much worried about pics for myself (I have had mine for over a week now, a gift from Ed) as I am pics for everybody else. (I was told not to say anything until they started hitting shelves).

 

If I tried to post all the pics I have (well over 100), it would overload the site. (and in case you believe me to be kidding, there are a few who still post here who HAVE seen the pics).

Well, mine came off a shelf.  Of course, I didn't pay full price for it (I work there part-time on weekends), but it was briefly on a store's shelf...

^^^That pizza looks sooooooooooo good (dang this high-protein diet I have right now. Starting back into lifting weights and dropping pounds from my midsection)

 

 

What is the picture limit per post?

So how many other people are going to pick up this model and swap a SBC in it?

 

 

Why stop there?

As have I...it looks like the body of the new kit has some....issues.   I'm still looking forward to getting at least one next month.

I'm no model expert, but other than the mold marks on rear bumper, that looks really good!

Noticed that...one thing I'm wondering about is the shape of the edge of the decklid...on the 1:1, there is a slight curve at the top edge of the decklid from left to right, peaking above the keyhole.  Looks flat in these pics.   The main issues (and there are many) I've seen raised by others are the height of the windshield opening and side window openings---- people that have seen the kit and whose judgement I trust and that know the 1:1 really well (I've owned 2 Fox Mustangs, but others have much deeper experience w/ them).  The general consensus so far is that the body is less accurate than previous Monogram and MPC Foxes.

 

I noticed the LX and blue oval decklid badges are missing, but I think those are #3 on the decals.  I wonder why the police decals have '70s style Cali plates..

 

Here's a pic of a 1:1 illustrating the decklid curvature I'm talking about..

Thanks for posting those pix, Brett!

 

What does the instruction sheet indicate parts 130, 135, 137, and 142 are?

130 = Light Bar Bracket

135 = Emergency Light (2 go into flashed over holes on package shelf)

137 = Spotlight (has a separate clear lens #144)

142= Emergency Light Lens
