This is a Revell 98 Saleen Mustang Speedster that I painted in HOK Razberry Pearl with black interior. This is a highly recommended kit that goes together very easy & has loads of detail. Hope you enjoy the photos.

Looks sharp!!  What color is that interior, looks spot on.  That looks like a 302 w/ pro charger, is that factory for that year?

Thanks guys! Ali, the interior is Testors spray flat black with Testors semi gloss clear sprayed over it. The supercharger was added on by Saleen during the conversion.

Now I need to build mine, looks great. I'll be honest, that rear spoiler seems like it sets up too high. I know it's the kit supplied spoiler, but most of the s281s I've seen set lower.

The one I built was the same way. Also the top fit like BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH, almost like the windshield angle didn't match the height of the top.

I agree with Dirk, I could not get that hood to lay flat on the drivers side. I almost glued in in the open position but it broke up the "fluid" lines of the overall car with it open. My up top seemed to fit almost perfectly, especially after I tweaked one front corner a smidgen. I'm not sure if the spoiler sits too high. The mounting points could be sanded down a touch to get it closer to the trunk lid. I thought it looked ok as it was. Overall I still recommend this kit. It was fun to build & most everything fit quite well.

It may be, I'm just going on what I've seen in the past. I just now sanded mine down. We will see how it goes once the paint is on. I got my hood to lay down a bit more by sanding the sides. The hood also is sticking up partially due to the "hinge" I noticed this while trying to get it to lay down. Idk if it will be hitting something once its all together.

Thank you Brett, that's very kind of you :) Joshua, yep, everything is pretty tight under the hood on this one. I wasn't sure the hood was going to go down at all with the supercharger sticking up like it does

I didn't know they put 351W's in the saleen.  I thought they were all 4.6's.  Trick flow heads, lightning intake, Viper 6 speed.  Geezz!!!!  Must have been usin all the pushrod 5.8's to get rid of them.  98' was last year for ford producing pushrods engines.  302 for sure(Explorer/Trucks.)  Idk about 351w.  I wonder if 99 up Saleens had 4.6?

that model depicts an s351 yes. supercharger was a vortech s trim and was an option. the s351 was built in very low numbers in 99 then the feds cracked down. I have had the pleasure of riding in one of these and they are fun!
