    Testors Acalpulco blue metallic and Plastic dreams floor mats.   I think the tires are from a MPC late model Mustang kit.

    GT500KR Shelby Mustang
    So here is my unusual HRM 68 Shelby conversion.  I originally painted the body and the paint jobs just came out bad so I tried to strip the paint and that softened the resin and the oven cleaner did not do that good a job of paint removal either.  So instead of scraping the body, I order another body from HRM and set it aside and used some of the 67 AMT Shelby kit parts, some from the AMT 68GT500, some from the MPC 69 Mach1 and Fred Cady and Keith Marks decals to make a 68GT500KR.  I still plan to build my other HRM transkit as s GT350.  The one thing you'll notice is I did not add the roll bar yet and I used the AMT kit interior.  Using mostly AMT parts was a challenge but everything for okay after some cutting and putty.  Enjoy and ask any questions you may have.

    I highly recommend talking to an estate planner and/or attorney now.  There are going to be issues with an estate and it is better to know what can be done now to make the process easier.  They can advise you to perhaps set up a trust and start liquidating assets versus waiting.  I wish you all the best in this very stressful situation.

    I planned on going but another meeting I had that morning ran a lot longer than I hoped :-(

    Hopefully I can see the progress in person unless we get snowed under in February.

    Is that the CMA kit that uses the Fujumi chassis?

    Someone needs to recast those.  I'd buy one.

    That's some serious detailing and excellent work.  Two thumbs up.

    I built a Boss 429 out of the MPC 69 fastback.  It turned out okay.
    I took the pictures before I put on the fender decals.

    Very nice.  I had not noticed that Spark screwed up the 67/68's.  There are a few other options for bodies (Carerra slot car and old AMT trophy series) in 1/43 but that's about it.
