In Topic: Are the 1969 Boss 302 tape stripes close enough for a 2012 version?

Good looking Mustang Steve.  

Back at 'cha.  I've been looking at the possibility of getting 2005 to 2009 at a reasonable price.  But someone else in the house gives me the "stink eye" if she sees me looking on the 'net.  I'll just use and enjoy what I've got.

That kit is one of their pre-painted simplified kits.

Not seeing that as much of a problem at this point.  I've got the 2015 Mustang kit pretty much because its got the wheels  I need for my 2013 GT.  I will wait for a review or two though.

There doesn't seem to be much late model Mustang model car accessories. I've been trying to find window louvers for my 2013 duplicate of my 1:1, and haven't had any luck.

 

Have you thought about making your own decals? 

Truly I hadn't.  I figured since they already were out there (at least '69 vintage) the effort would be a duplicate.  I've never tried something like that.  I do wish they came out in orange though.  In related news I found a Model Car Garage photo etch with (fairly) late model Mustang logos including 5.0 for the fenders.  And of course very shortly after I bought a set off of Ebay, I found that Revell has just released a 2014 Mustang GT kit with the 5.0 logos and the proper Coyote engine. http://www3.towerhob...0001p?&I=LXERMD

   Looks like one more kit to buy.

Have you taken a look at the photo-etch sets from KA Models? They have 3 different sets for the newer Mustangs, one of the sets may have what you need.

Also, email Keith Marks about the decals. He has done decals for the 2007 Mustangs and may do up a set of what you need. He does do custom work.

Thanks, I looked at the KA kits and all they have are for the various Revell Shelby Mustangs.  No GT, Boss 302, and no 5.0.  The search goes on.
