Timing huh? I have FOXes in the shop EVERY day. Then I come home to 3 in my garage.

 

 

It will be quite interesting to see how this kit stacks up to the 1:1 cars.

Awesome car, will be an awesome model, but man those kit decals are horrible....its OK though, I've got lots to put on em....

Yeah, that is a pretty poor representation of a CHP Mustang. As long as the rest of the kit doesn't fall victim to sloppy research it will be nice to have. CHP decals are pretty easy to source and the other mistakes (light bar, red / blue grill lights) are simply fixed by just not using them.

 

I'm looking forward to this kit.

I think it was mentioned that those decals were photoshopped, the kit decals will hopefully be better.

Around here foxes have dried up, and what is available goes to Da Silva or to the scrapyard because it's a rot box.

So why not just Photoshop on the kit's decals then? Especially considering this picture is of a "fake" (in that it's not a picture of a real box lid) box.

It would make sense to do that

Box art was created using the built-up test shots shown here.  I doubt whoever who built it (on a tight deadline, I'm sure) was an SSP Mustang expert. 

 

Box art and decal art were most likely created at the by the same artist. No need waiting for decals to print just so you can use production decals on a box art build.  'Shop 'em on and get that sucker on the shelves!!!

Drop that bar on the box and source a Vision bar, but only for a few. 90(+)% were slick tops.  I'm concerned that no spot lamps are indicated but lets see what comes in the kit (I'm going to get at least 2).  Also drop the idea of there ever being a CHP K-9 Mustang (honestly?)  I had one assigned to me for about 2-3 years.  Lots of fun to drive but don't ever get let one side be on wet pavement and the other on dry-swap ends at a thought.

The idea of the K-9 unit is even more entertaining when you figure some states (like KY) put roll cages in them. Where's that dog gonna fit? :D

Steve, it can be completely dry pavement and it will still swap ends on you! All you have to do is be on stock tires and get aggressive with the throttle and it becomes 'HELLO TAILLIGHTS'!

Oh, don't I friggin' know it - my '93 LX bit me on more than one occasion. One time I let my ex drive it, about a tinkle's worth of water on the ground had her shrieking in panic as she gently squeezed the throttle around a corner.

 

Seriously.  The water she lost in that 90-degree spin was about three times what there was outside.

They're a REAL hoot on wet grass, too.  Years ago a friend of mine asked what 'doing a donut' meant, and I was more than happy to demonstrate on the rain soaked grass. If the yard had been a bit larger I'd have shown her an example of a powerslide as well.  :rolleyes: That was a GT hatch, but still.

Steve, it looks like there's a single spotlight on the chrome sprue, but not the 2 for the CHP....

It does not appear its going to have a spotlight ,  I dont see a clear lense on the clear parts trees, but there is what could be something close to a spotlight on the parts tree that has the light bar and the wheels, chrome parts tree ,  not holding my breathe that its going to come with one

Looks like I'll have to shave the window cranks and add door pockets to make it a power window '92.
