Being a Mustang fanatic and after getting back into the hobby late last year I was researching what kind of Mustang kits had ever come out. I stumbled upon some IMSA road race Mustang kits on ebay. I pretty much have acquired all the different kits that were made so I got some building to do but I just finished the first one. This is such a killer car and I think the model turned out pretty nice.   :)

Great job!  I too have several of these kits.  Might need to cultivate my inner Mustang.

Very nice looking build you have there,I bought a built up kit just like yours a few years ago for 5 bucks,it was complete and a decent looking build but I want to really do it justice one of these days,I don't have the instustions or decal but I do have a set of mint SAE decal's I plan to use on it. I hope it comes out as good as yours did.

Thanks for the compliments guys! It is a pretty detailed kit, I went a lot further with detail painting than the instructions say.
