  1. Looks like a buying a couple of those kits for parts! I've got an AWB '65 Fairlane project waiting in the wings right now. 😆
  2. Here's one of my many WIPS, a replica of the 1:1 '73 Pinto I had when I was a kid. I had intended to put a 289 into it but never did, I got distracted when I bought my '68 Fairlane. So, this build is what could have been....
  3. Looks like a good starting point on a AG Milner coupe I've been wanting to do. It will be FORD powered of course.🍿
  4. Fantastic build! I don't think I've ever seen one this accurate. Nobody seems to bother getting the rear wheels where they belong, or the correct front suspension. Job well done! 🤘 I'm a huge fan of these cars, have one long-term WIP and few more in the plans. Ritchey sure knew his way around a Ford race car, and the quarter mile. It's really sad that he died so young, and in such a horrifying manner. 😟
  5. I've been gradually collecting 69/70 Mustangs from various brands. I'm looking to get all of the Grabber colors, still looking for a Grabber Green car. Here's a few of the 70s....
  6. Thx Guys! Finished it in under a month, I'm pretty happy with it. 😃
  7. What shade of Blue are you going to use?
  8. This is my return effort after a long pause in modeling, so I chose a simple one. I've got many, many WIPs already, so I promised myself I won't touch another model until this one is 110% DONE. 😆 This isn't something I would normally build, I generally stick to drag and muscle cars. I lowered it as low as it would go, and pushed the tires inboard as far as they would go. It's obviously not very accurate, but I like how it looks.
  9. I have bought several of his kits, usually at a show. They are very nice and worth the wait IMO.
  10. Any suggestions on how to make contact? I've emailed and sent Facebook PMs, NO response.
  11. They actually did have a third (Midwest) team in 1970. There was a Maverick and a Torino.
  12. I'm building three different versions of my 1:1 1968 Fairlane 500. This one represents what it would of looked like when it was new. The first photo is what it looked like in 1982 shortly after I got it. The next one is a random photo I found online. The body is from Modelhaus and the chassis is an AMT '66 Fairlane. The vinyl top is going to be a challenge!
  13. Any news on the Bill Ireland '68 CJ Mustang decal?
  14. I have quite a bit of reference material for the AFX Mustangs. Here's the H&M magazine article........... https://public.fotki.com/fordflashback/2-model-projects/125-afx-mustangs/holman-moody-article/
  15. I use this site to make license plates, then print them off on photo paper and glue them on with Elmers. https://www.licenseplates.tv/usa-state-plates.html
  16. I found one episode of Dan August with the blue Quarterhorse in it. For some reason, it has a red standard Shelby hood on it with what looks like a 65 GT350 scoop riveted on. It also has a non-Shelby rollbar in it.
