Just got mine on Friday, well worth the ~15 month wait.

Got anymore GT's lying around Bob?

Just one that I'll build someday...probably as a race car.

Never done in 1/25, nor by any US model manufacturer.  However, Gunze-Sangyo did it in 1/24 scale (just 4-percent larger than 1/25 scale) in a very nicely done curbside kit--in several variants as well.

Art,

 

It's Aoshima, not Gunze who did the 1/24 MGB bodies. I know the kits pretty well since doing the GT master for you a couple decades ago. I wish Aoshima would reissue them, it's been awhile and the kits are almost as hard to find as the resin bodies.

 

Dave Toups did a great LHD dash conversion that Norm/Replicas & Miniatures cast, not sure if it is still in the catalog or not.

 

These MGB kits need some lowering for the earlier versions; the kits are done w/the tall ride height seen on the rubber-bumper variants.

This model knocked my socks off at the Southwest Challenge when I saw it many years ago, since I love both CRX's and 911's. Seared in my memory...and provided me years of inspiration for similar mashups that I've done. Thanks for sharing B)

Thanks guys, wasn't quite expecting to see this here, the Mustang was a blast to build and ended up being the perfect slump-buster for me after a couple of far more-involved projects. A 1:1 just like it would be more than welcome in my garage.
