Ya baby !!!  Looks great.   Nice job.

Hey thanks Ray.

Forgive me for saying this, but the wheels/tires look a bit too big. The entire build is awesome though. The hood turned out great. 

I appreciate your honesty. The 1:1 Super Snake has 20" wheels so that is why I went with something so large. Thanks for the compliment on the hood.

If I may ask, what was your method of decanting Duplicolor paint? With that weird nozzle they have, I'm having a lot of trouble getting an even finish and a lot of build up.  Thanks for any help regarding this matter.

 

RYAN.

So I bought the GT500 from Hobby Lobby like many others did here (40% off coupon.) Just could not bring myself to build it box stock. Sooooo the picture search began and I settled on the Super Snake. The first order of business was to find a set of wheels.......like many here I found this to be quite difficult. I found that the R/C world had more to offer than anything so I purchased the wheels below which look pretty similar to the originals (or close enough for the lack of choices out there.) On to the hood! 12 hours later of cutting, filling, sanding, filling, sanding, priming, :blink: !!! ??!! Finally got the hood ready for paint.

 

Here's some progress shots so far....

How did you make the hood scoop? Out of styrene?

How did you make the hood scoop? Out of styrene?

Hood scoop was made by cutting two lines upward toward back of the hood, raising that section of hood up, and making styrene side supports to hold it in place. So essentially the top of the hood scoop IS the original hood. The vents were cut into it and the individual slats were laid in with styrene strips.

Almost done. Need to paint the mirrors and install and that is it. Work has been demanding lately to say the least.

 

A friend took some pictures of it on Sunday and I figured I would share them.

I love this build.  Mustangs are my favorite car and you made this thing look totally awesome.  One small question if I may though.  Did you forget to put the door mirrors on or did you omit them on purpose?

Mirrors were added after those pictures. A friend who is a  hobby photographer took those just before the car was finished. The pictures in "Under Glass" section are of the completed model.

 

Thank you for the compliments! I love the Mustangs too.
