    Great looking Mustang, love the color.

    The Road Runner is finished. I did have a bit of an Aaargh! moment when one of the tail lights fell out and was rattling around in the body. Luckily it came out and I was able to refit it after removing the rear bumper. I'm pleased with how it turned out and it will look good on the shelf.

    Great looking Nova Clay.

    I managed to finish foiling the window frames and got the glass fitted so this I where I got to.



    A quick mock up to finish with.



    Thanks to Rob for suggesting this build, there's been some great work going on here and I've enjoyed taking part.

    The Chevy looks good Rob. Shame it won't be finished in time but your back (and wife) are more important.

    I'm not sure if I'll be finished either. The interior parts are all detailed and assembled.



    The foiling is still going on. If anything makes me over run that'll be it.



    Here in the UK there's just over an hour to midnight. I'll take a couple of photos of where I'm up to and finish it tomorrow.

    Good to hear she's back home Dave.
    Great work guys. I've got the body clear coated and most of the decals on.



    At the moment I'm working on detailing the door panels then it'll be BMF time.

    Love that green!

    It looks good in those colors.

    Hi Tom,

    I have seen the latest reissue on sale over here but never got around to buying it. As you say it does like an original issue, I'm planning on starting on it soon.

    I had a nice surprise at my local model club meeting this afternoon when I was asked by one of the more senior members if I built older stuff like Model T Fords. When I said yes he produced this from under the table.



    I can't remember how long he said he'd had it but looking at the box, instructions and decals it was quite a few years.



    I checked the parts when I got home and it looks like the stock 'T' has been built, probably back in the day but all the parts for the chopped coupe are still there so I'm happy.



    I did ask if he wanted anything for it. When he said no I said that I'd get it built and bring it in to one of the future meetings.

    Good to hear that your Mother could be coming home soon, it can't be much fun being in hospital on your birthday.

    The engine is finished and has been installed.





    As you can see the chrome steelies have been painted black. I'll be adding the dog dish hubcaps later. With the dark blue paint and black interior it looks like it should be in the 'Sleeperball'. The chrome parts should brighten things up a bit.

    Keep up the good work everybody.

    Sorry to hear about the paintwork Bruce, hope it turns out OK next time.

    Great work so far guys, it looks like quite a few will be finished before the deadline. I've got some more done this morning. The engine is painted and nearly ready to go in. The rear suspension/exhausts have also been fitted.



    The body has been given a few coats of Tamiya Racing Blue. It doesn't look too bright indoors but out in the sunlight it looks a lot better.



    I'm off to my local model club meeting for a couple of hours, more later.

    Some great work going on guys.

    I got some work done on the Road Runner this evening. Body has been primed and the interior parts and underside have had a coat of satin black.



    The engine needed some filler on the oil pan but after that's sorted out it'll be ready for paint. I'm thinking of metallic blue for the body.

    You're off to a good start there Bruce.

    I've been thinking about joining in with this since it was announced. I have built a couple of curbside kits in 24 hours before so I've decided to give it a go. I'll be bringing some classic Mopar muscle to the table in the shape of a Monogram Road Runner.



    I don't know how far I'll get with it in a weekend but it'll be interesting to find out.
