This is a MPC mustang svo, pretty much stock besides the addition of flocking and a few battery cables. Primered, sanded, painted Krylon gloss black, krylon clear, and novus 1 and 2 applied afterwards. All coats of paint were speed dryed using a dehydrator. Any comments good or bad please feel free. I know the mustang might sit a little high, but it is normal for an MPC kit, It is hard to lower the suspension on this one.

Good looking build. I picked one of these up a few years ago, moe for the rare factor. I think it was re-tooled into the '88 Gt kit.

Yes, they are pretty rare and go up to $70 bucks on ebay sometimes :) I think another one molded in white one was retooled or silver.

i don't  know   of a   "white  version"   just the  black  molded  (easier to  find)   and the  older  version of  silver molded has sunken in headlamps vs black  kit has the  flush "compound" lamps  both  kit versions  can  be  built with the  headlamps   either  way ( the little  plastic  lenses are inserts to the  chrome  housing)   its funny the  recaro  seats and the little  clear plastic  headlamp  pcs  can  be   founf  in the  reissued 87-88 gt mustangs  by   amt/mpc. i had always   wondered what those  clear  lenses  were  for untill i got  one of the  old  svo  kits

   on the  87-88  you can  very  carefully   remove the  "cheesegrater"  molded in  taillamps  and  use the  clear  "lx" / gt   style  clear  tail lamp  buckets  insted!

   was it their   early  attempt to be able to  customize a  gt 5.0  to a  base model  5.0 lx??

 

  Eric   great  shiney  build!! my paint  never  turns out  so  nice.....

    I  would  reccomend on the  seat  head rests to carefully  remove the  "mesh" from the  headrests...... or  paint the  mesh black don't think svo's  came with  halo  seats think they  had   "lx"  style  short headrests ??   otherwise  spot  on  b uild!!    you have  motivated me  to  get  something  done!!

The one I have is molded in Silver, and actually doesn't say MPC on the box, although its the same box art as the MPC with silver car on it. I picked it up for $20 so looks like an OK deal. I opened it though, some collectors might not like that.
