Finished, (finally) and a pretty close match to the 1:1 version.

 

All emblems are photoetch from Model Car Garage.

A few extra details were added to the engine, idle air bypass valve was cut off of the throttle body and glued back on at the proper angle.

Sharp build...looks very realistic..love the color choices.  The 3rd and 4th photos really show where Greg's body is a huge improvement over the kit OOTB.

Am I nuts or does the roof look a tad tall? (I'm kidding of course!). That is utter perfection, I can't stop looking at it.

Wow that looks amazing. All the effort was definitely worth it. Very nice. Cant wait to get my corrected bodies from greg. Got a question, how did you glue in the 1/4 windows without the black on the windows themselves getting smeared on the back by the glue?

Gorgeous little coupe Mike. The extra effort to fix the errors that Revell didn't made all the difference. Excellent job sir!

Mike's Mustang IS fantastic!   Superb. 

 

It won the monthly contest at our club meeting last Saturday.

 

 

We had a neat theme:   MasterCaster Resins.  There were eight (8) examples of Greg's casting artistry on the table, built and finished by various club members, and Mike's walked away with the trophy!!

The roof looks too tall.  No, just being smart...

 

Great looking model.  All the changes are subtle but recognizable - the kind of model I enjoy.  Great work.

Thanks for the nice words, gentlemen. Making the master was as much fun for me as building the kit with the resin body. Everything just came together, and nothing fought me as is usually the case. I'm looking forward to building the next master, but I need to tune up the coupe master and get it to Greg so he can make a new mold. I'm on it.

 

Wow that looks amazing. All the effort was definitely worth it. Very nice. Cant wait to get my corrected bodies from greg. Got a question, how did you glue in the 1/4 windows without the black on the windows themselves getting smeared on the back by the glue?

 

Thanks Ryan. All the glass and light lenses are glued in with clear enamel paint, a tip from the aircraft builders who use it on canopies. Brush a little on the edges of the glass and the surrounding areas on the body, let it tack up for a couple of minutes, and lightly press the part into place. Then dab a little more into the corners with a fine brush to add extra adhesion. When dry, it's completely invisible. The enamel grabs well, doesn't smear paint, and doesn't fog like CA glue.

Thanks Dan. It was a great meeting; food, friends, and model cars. What else do you need?

Mike,

 

All of the work you put into this one was well worth it. This one is downright georgeous. The best looking example of this kit I have seen. Thank you for sharing it with us.
