It's been a busy year cutting into my building time, but here is my 3rd completed model of the year. It's the original issue Revell/Monogram kit, built straight out of the box.  Duplicolor Cardinal Red was sprayed onto the body, then polished out. The decals were shot so there's no underhood markings but was no biggie to me.  I left off the running horse in the grille as it had broke when I tried removing it from the tree. No big issues in building this one, only the front suspension gave a lil fuss. After taking the pics, I see I overlooked a couple small items I'll address shortly, namely blacking out the face of the scoop on the rear fenders. It doesn't really show up in the pics, but I did paint the rear side marker lights. I may give them another coat of paint to make them pop out a little more.  Enough with my rambling, on to the pics......

Looks great, nice detailing on the trim and tail lights. These Mustangs are growing on me from year to year.

Looks real! Really nice red, is that a factory color? Don't worry about no hose or decals under the hood, looks good to me!

Thanks guys. Building something box stock was a nice change of pace and refreshing.

Sounds like a good project, good luck!

It is a factory Ford color, but not for the Cobra.  It is pretty close to the available Rio Red, though.  Actually, I'm not sure what years Ford did use Cardinal Red.  :blink:
