hi alan,..thanks for your kind comments. this one is sprayed with tamiya bright red, then tamiya gloss pearl coat over top. the pics don't show the color as well as it looks in person....that tamiya pearl coat is neat...gives it that 60's killer fleck appearance. regards, a.c.

I gotta agree with the others, that old Falcon does look great.  Very nice work.  It gives me a little more inspiration to dig out one of mine and start slapping it together.

I love the early A/FX cars. Simple, Clean and Mean. Yours is one of the nicer ones. Congratz on a well executed build.

Ace, I'm just curious why there is no drive belt and/or pulleys on this engine? Nice build.

Okay, they are small. I'm currently working on the AMT '65 Mustang Funny Car, same engine I think. AND, I just painted the hood Tamiya Bright Red, great color.

hi gene, yes, I love the Tamiya bright red as well,,,and no doubt it will look great on your awb mustang. just something to note....this falcon has their pearlcoat over the red, and, it does give it that 60s killer fleck appearance, but as with most clears, it does change the color tone somewhat...please keep it in mind, and please post pics of your stang when completed.......good luck,,the ace........ ;)
