      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    @‌KiwiMike looks great!
    @‌vamach1 ya my local Shop was out and he was having a hard time getting that's the main reason why its been a over a year for any progress
    @‌Travis T  Thanks for the info, but i'm not going to go into that much detail
    For this project i'm going to try a lot of new things I have never done before. first will be sanding and polishing. I bought some really good nail polishing kit. Gonna give that a try and then the dremmel. I'd also like to try bare metal foil and I want to try some engine detailing. All new territory!
    Thanks for watching

    The paint is Vallejo, Used in my air brush. I'm not sure the colour as I mixed it. not sure I can replicate it

    Over the holidays I had time you work on this model. I couldn't find Grabber Orange so I found something close.
    I would have made more progress but after spraying on the clear coat The model fell off the stand while drying and messed it up. I had to sand it smooth and re-spray the clear coat. This is the result so far.

    I have read a really good Tutorial on polishing and I cant wait to try it

    Sooo, I've been searching for days now and I can't seem to find a good tutorial on engine detailing. I have never done engine detailing and thought I'd give it a go. I bought some wire that I think is a good scale for spark plug wires. But I would like to read or watch a few tutorials.
    Any links would help alot

    I had to google Model Car Garage... Thats some pretty cool stuff. I never realized they did stuff like this soo much detail. you could carried away and spend alot on a project

    I will give it another coat then I'll take some pictures

    Thanks for all the comments,

    @Monty, If I have the opportunity I'd buy Both, lol.

    @MsDano85gt yup It's a pretty cool kit

    @PappyD340 I think I would do that if I find another kit, But for now one at a time

    So far the Mach 1 is leading

    Here's more to add to the debate, Pics:

    Mach 1:

    Boss 302:

    Modified Boss 302:

    Either way, It's going to be Grabber Orange... Which I couldn't find anywhere! So I'm gonna mix it myself. It will be trial and error.

    '70 Mustang Mach 1/ Boss 302
    So I purchased this kit and decided to give it a go

    I haven't done much yet and most of my progress will be slow due to Life Stuff. If your patient with me you might enjoy the ride. <= car joke

    So first thing I did was drill out the door handles

    I then primed it (no pics of that)

    My real Issue is what to build!! Do I build the Mach 1, the Boss 302 or a Modified Boss 302?

    Here is the 351ci Mach 1 Engine vs the Boss 302 Engine

    Keep watching
