Very sweet build Bruce. It sits right & it LOOKS right.

This is the kit that got me hooked on Hot Rods when I built it back in the early '60's. Mine was light blue with the turtle deck which explains why every T I have built since has a turtle deck. I loved it.

Beautiful build mate. The effort in making it original is appreciated. Now.... where can I get one?

Awesome model mate. Once again, the colours work so well. Very clean & stylish build.

Wheels & tyres are from the Tamiya Nissan R89C kit which is 1/24 of course, so the look realy good on a 1/25 body

Parts of that kit will end up in at least three models I think.

Thanks for the great feedback Glad you like it

 

Mark, I'm embarased to say that there was not much to these mods

I started with the AMT '66 Mustang which had a good body but very basic floor pan that had moulded in exhausts etc & no inner guards which I wanted to back up the engine.

I had the AMT Mercury Cougar Street Machine in my stash & it had the chassis & inner body work I needed. All I had to do was shorten it about 3mm & section the firewall/guard piece & it all fitted very well. Guards were fairly easy being flat sheet rolled around a paint can of convenient diameter. Just needed some triming & surprising little filler. All together I really enjoyed this build
