Beautiful car, Cruz. Congratulations on the cover car!! I have always loved the Mustangs of this year. As a matter of fact, this and the 70 Boss 429 were my first loves as a young kid. Classic body style.

BTW- This is the Revellogram Special Edition kit? How did it go together? I'm still waiting to build my 2.

 

Later-

Superb work Cruz, perfect car for a cover shot specially at the angle it was taken. Do you have any pictures of the engine before you placed it in the engine bay? Looks like you spent a lot of time detailing it.

Thanks Kevin, the engine is one of the biggest reasons I decided to put this one together. It's really cool looking when completed!!

What a cool looking model man, your paintwork never ceases to amaze me as usual. What did you use for spark plug boots? They look so cool.

Thanks guys! The interior is rather simple, didn't do much there. For spark plug boots, I like to use hypodermic needles. (23gauge)

Stunning work as always from your bench. Nice paint job on it, and that engine looks excellent. What did you use for weathering? I'm using The Detailer, but it is bit too shiny in some point.... Otherwise it's fantastic stuff. Your Mustang looks excellent, can't say anything negative about it.

Hypodermic needles? Wow, you learn something new every day, never would have thought about using that.

Thanks guys. I like using Citadel paints for the washes on the engine and other parts, I also use a product called Rub and Buff, it's a silver pastelike product that highlights the high spots on the chassis and various parts of the engine. I also use pastels for the chassis to recreate a little bit of dirt and give the car sort of a slightly used look.

You don't just need your work on a magazine cover. You need your own magazine.

Oooooooh WOW !   I haven't seen the magazine but that definetly deserves the cover !   Absolutely stunning !

  I have that kit and agree with you that the engine is really pretty when it's finished ( I stole it for my Ranchero build ) .

Awesome work Cruz.  Flawless paint and just the right amount of weathering under the hood and on the chassis.  Fantastic job!
