All of those are superb. The paint jobs are awesome. You should be very proud.

I agree 100%!

Super clean. It is so crisply done looks much larger than 1/25. With the right background it could be a "Real or Model" contender with no Photoshopping.

Wow! Super, super paint jobs! They pass for 1:1's. I didn't laugh at the '83, I actually want to build one myself.

Haha, yeah, he was in gray primer though. I forget exactly what happened to him.

Dipped in toxic acid

Nice transam. i quite like this year model due to liking Knight Rider. It was such a futuristic design when it came out (which was why i hated the "retro" mustang being Knight Rider)

David, this build is great! Looks so life-like! You are one of very few that can take a 1/24-25 scale car and make it look real! It makes me want to build my 1/16 kit, but I lost interest in it. Maybe if someone doesn't want to trade anything for it or if I can't sell it, I'll build it in the far future. I have too many builds I want to do before I even consider that one.

These 3 cars are all 1/24-25 right?

Thanks Brodie! Which 1/16th kit do you have?
Yeah, I am thinking all of them are 1/24.

This is a few pictures I snapped for the Trading ad I posted awhile ago:

I was going to build a replica of my old '83 Daytona 500 T/A pace car, but when I sold the car, I lost interest in the build, so now it's sitting.

Yeah, I actually dropped the front about 2 scale inches, and the rear just a little. Also, I`m not sure if anyone noticed, but I didn`t use the kit tires. I used the tires from the GTA kit. They were a little wide, but the diameter was more accurate IMO. And the rims fit in them perfectly.
