I will let him answer that, but I will say, many years ago I had one of these 1:1.............sorriest Stang I ever had and almost did me in on them until they did the retro version.

It was a Entex Mustang ...Pretty much like a toy kit and I picked it up for 20 bucks... Looks like the same kit though...
