Hey guys, I'm new to the forum and figured I'd start out by asking a question.  As you could tell by my username, I'm something of a Ford Mustang guy.  I've owned two so far in my life, a 2000 V6 Convertible in Lazer Red with a white convertible top, and my current ride that I've had for almost exactly 10 years, a 2003 GT Premium, black and black, which I've converted to a mashup of a Mach 1 and Steeda (Mach 1 front bumper, essentially ,with Steeda hood and spoiler, and aftermarket quarter panel window scoops, and 99/01 Cobra rims).

I was going through my collection of Mustang kits the other day.  While it's not an extensive or comprehensive by any stretch of the imagination, it does have a fair amount of examples of kits.  However, one thing I noticed, and then confirmed after a bit of internet research, is that there is all of ONE Mustang from the 99-04 body style.  That is a 99 Cobra.  There are no GTs, no 2003-04 Cobras or Machs, no 2001 Bullitt, no convertibles.  There are a LOT of examples of different variations from all of the other years of Mustangs (even including a 98 Saleen and 97 Super Stallion, of all things).  So, I'm wanting to know if there are any aftermarket resin kits of them?  I'm fairly new to model car building, especially when it comes to aftermarket stuff, so I figured I'd ask for suggestions where to look.

Closest you will get is Die-cast. Only resin available is a cowl hood and some aftermarket style side scoops which very randomly appear on E-bay.

I do actually have a few in die-cast (as well as a Saleen S7, which I've only ever seen in 1/32 for plastic kit form - shame, as it's my favorite car), and I have seen that hood on ebay (I'm about to buy one... ).

There is very little, which has already been said. As far as that goes, it doesn't take much to convert it to a gt or a bullit. The c-pillar windows is about the only thing different other than the obvious front bumper. It is not very hard to make the side scoops, or even the c-pillar scoops at that. I have three of these kits that I need to finish.
