PEGASUS!!!
 
Pegasus is a Anti-Gravity Racer with Pod Racer Engines.
 
The Most of the parts are from the Monogram Mustang GTP Kit. The Engines are from the AMT Star Wars Pod Racer Kit.

I am going to take the Intakes from the Jet and modify them to fit the Mustang...

I cut the front of the Mustang off with a razor  saw and got the Intakes off of the old plane without breaking them!

With a little trimming I got the Intakes to fit!

TWO BIG INTAKES!!!

 

I cut 2 pieces of sheet plastic to fit along the hood lines. These will be the inside walls of the Intakes...

Next I cut 2 pieces of plastic to fill in the areas on the tops of the Intakes...

Then I cut 2 more pieces of plastic, to fill in the bottoms on the Intakes...

Is that the 82 mustaNg? I got a couple more imsa racers off flea bay, but I do not think they are that style that's the gta? Nice work so far customizing an already awsome vehicle
