I built one many years ago and remember the decals too a really long time to do.

 

I got that car in the stash.

 

Really nice job.  Those Mustangs made mean looking racecars.

 

Thanks and yes they did. I love me some Fox Mustangs!

I have one of these that I plan on going all out on. I'm waiting for my skills to improve. By far my favorite race car.

Nice work on one of my favorite models!!! Anyone remember these kits were announced as Monogram 1/24 kits but ended up as Revell 1/25 after the merger??

That bar is for the jack. the car was so low that you can't roll it under the chassie. I know the came with hidrolic jacks but they also use this technick. I guess they took them out to shave weight.

Just got most of the white Motorcraft car in a parts lot yesterday. Looks to be missing the rims and tires. I think i am going to try and buy the whole collection of these cars. They are just killer to look at.

How about a Roush Merkur?????

These were Mustangs with different bodies. Some raced as 'XR8na' others as 'XR4ti'

The model is a Mustang with resin body and aftermarket decals....Klaus Ludwig..

I might just use the decal sheet for the Motorcraft car on that one. I also have a complete engine for it but i like the idea of a 2.3 Turbo still.
