Built this one back in 2009, I believe. This was my first attempt at trying to replicate a factory fresh car, using a magazine article of a concours restored Boss by Bob Perkins, as a guide. Mostly just paint detailing. Added a solenoid and rev limiter. I love these 'stangs in Grabber Blue, so that's what I went with (Testors enamel). Decals are from Keith Marks. Oh yeah, other than the air cleaner lid, this was also before I ventured into the world of BMF. Sorry, the pics are a little dark and don't show the color the best. Someday I'll probably take some better ones. Thanks for lookin'.....

Really sharp looking Mustang Tony! I have a Boss 429 that I was planning on painting "Grabber Green". But, after seeing yours, I think I'm going to go the route you took. Nice work! BTW, glad to see you posting here now!
