Hi guys,

here is my last build, starting with a AMT model, rear spoiler come from a 79 T/A, windows louvers are from a Monza. Front spoiler is from the box. The decals are from Keith Mark, not that easy to work especially on the hood scoop... Wheels are from an AMT 77 Camaro, engine is a302 from a MPC Fox Mustang, with some Boss 302 engine element. ( Pics ASAP as it still isn't finished ). Outside mirror are from a 70 'Stang also, I've also change the chrome headlight for some clear ones.

Lot's of work for this little car, but I'm not that happy about the results, got some trouble with the decals and the final coat... well anyway I let you judge ;)

A pic from the interior, I've cut the door panels for extra detailling, I've put some new door armrest 'cause the one from the kit were very "flat" molded !!!

Your work has def raised that kit up a notch. Love the late '70's vibe of the dio.

Thanks for all your comments !!! Realgone : the dio is not from myself but from a very talented guy here in France which is a Master in this category, it is all scratch, there's even some small light for the front and the big Ad !!! I unfortunatly never build one, maybe someday.....

Very nice looking Mustang although it seems to ride a bit on the high side.  Good looking diorama too.

Wow, I think it looks great.

 

I have always had a soft spot for these Mustangs even though they weren't super popular in their time. You sure have done this one justice Emmanuel.

Love the Mustang II. Very cool and an excellent build!  Can't wait to see the engine compartment.

 

I seen one going down the road yesterday. It was Black with gold stripes. You just don't see them very often anymore.

 

Again, very cool.  Thanks for sharing.

Great looking Mustang! I think that's the best color scheme for those 1970's Mustangs. The diorama is very well done too. Good work!
