Ira, I'd give a lot to see you sit down and build a custom Batmobile.

 

 

That sounds like Fun to me... B)

BiG MUSTANG GRILL!!!

 

I am using an 1/16th scale 1964 Mustang Grill, with "Floating" Horse Emblem for the Pegasus!


DSCN0376P_zps9568dbdc.jpg


I had to reduce it's width a little bit.


DSCN0378P_zps043bc189.jpg


I cut a piece of plastic to mount the New Hood to and glued it in place...


DSCN0383P_zps7c2eb481.jpg


After a lot of planning & figuring I found the best position for the Grill and glued it in place!

BiG MUSTANG HOOD!!!

 

I'm using the hood from an AMT 1/16th scale 1964 Mustang for the Pegasus...


DSCN0397P_zps53fe725c.jpg


I measured the size I need and cut it out of the BiG Hood.


DSCN0402P_zps92b0c4c7.jpg


Here is the New Hood glued in place!


DSCN0408P_zpse49e6361.jpg


I cut a piece of sheet plastic for a Front Pan for the Pegasus and glued it in place...


DSCN0413P_zps1ce5b738.jpg


I cut 2 small strips of plastic and glued them at both ends of the Grill to finish it off!

A LITTLE PRIMER...

 

I sprayed a little White Primer on the Front End Additions. Now it's easier to see how the Pegasus Design is coming along...

Ira, I very much admire your work and have for a long time. Your creativity is endless. I wonder, do you plan these builds or do you just fly by the seat of your pants and see where it goes ?

BACK DOOR MUSTANG!!!

 

The Pegasus will have a BiG Jet Engine on each side of the body, blocking the doors, so I'm going to put in a Rear Door in for Driver Access!

 

I drew 2 lines from the rear window back. Then I drew 2 more lines about 1/8th inch wider at the rear. I will cut on the outside lines...


DSCN0466P_zps1060d12d.jpg


I marked the underbody with the same shape as above except, its about 3/8th inches shorter...


DSCN0471P_zpsfdbb8fc8.jpg


I used a Zona Saw and cut out the rear deck.

 

DSCN0474P_zps3474780f.jpg


Then I cut out the underbody section with a Zona Saw and X-Acto Knife.


DSCN0476P_zps8f641876.jpg


Here is the Body/Underbody Test Fit...


DSCN0478P_zps3b65dd4f.jpg


It Fits!
