MPC's refreshed Ohio George Montgomery Malco Gasser Mustang

17 May 2014 - 05:23 AM

Finally getting a chance to post the finished photos.  They are courtesy of my Daughter Rachael, I had to wait until she was done with her school finals.  The model was actually done it time to display at the NNL East.

 

All in all I'm very pleased with how it came out.  It did fight me all the way, mostly due to me and Murphy's Law although it's 40 year old plus design did make for a few challenges.  Of course you may want to consider I was building out of my mostly factory stock element.

The photo above probably shows the paint best.  The Metalflake effect was actually done with course metallic and pearls. I thought it would look more in scale then the Metalflake paints I've seen.   The kit decals includes just about variation, I chose to go with how it looked on the Car Craft magazine cover.

MPC's refreshed Ohio George Montgomery Malco Gasser Mustang build up

05 April 2014 - 02:18 PM

This is going to be a basic build up with just a few minor modifications.  I've already built up the engine and started on the rest of the chassis parts. The firewall has been tacked in place along with a few other parts for test fitting and will come apart for painting.

Considering it's age, I think the engine builds up as a decent replica of the SOHC 427 Ford as compared to my reference photos. I noted the the front timing cover wasn't a precise fit and the location of what I think is an ignition box isn't clear.  I did strip the chrome off the blower case and timing cover before painting.

My goal is to have this done in time for the NNL East.  We'll soon see.....
