  1. 1969 Ford Mustang Shelby Mach 1

    My greatest apologies for all who were following this build. I am still very new to modifying, fabricating, and scratch building model car parts. At this point in time, modifying the Shelby to work with the Mach 1 is beyond my current ability. It will happen someday, I just would like to have a bit more experience before I try to modify a not-so-common kit (the Mach 1). So, with that being said, I will build this as my 1:1 scale dream car - a stock 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 428CJ in Acapulco Blue. Again, apologies for completely changing the build plans this late through the build.

    Looks good so far, Roy! That’ll look nice with the white interior!
  3. Looks like a great start, TJ! I’m looking forward to seeing what paint color you choose for it.
  4. Oooo I like where this is going!
  5. Everything about this build is just awesome! Nice work, Geno!
  6. C8 Mid engine Vette.Hmmmm🤔

    I hear tell that there’s already one sitting in a garage somewhere around here...of course, I haven’t seen it for myself, just heard rumors of it.

    Sanded out the "orange peel" in the primer. Before: After: Next step is to figure out how to make the front of the Shelby frame fit onto the Mach 1 chassis.

  9. In need of help repairing a car badge

    Thank you all for the replies! I think I’ll go with JB weld since it’s the only thing mentioned that I have right now. That is a rather unique sounding setup.
  10. In need of help repairing a car badge

    If this is in the wrong section, I apologize. I wasn't quite sure where to put it. This badge is from my Uncle's Mercury Monarch. I'd like to keep it for sentimental reasons. How would I go about gluing it back together? JB weld? Something different? Thanks in advance!

    Thanks, Bruce!

    I got the engine block assembled and changed my plans (again) on the chassis. I'm going to cut the front of the frame (from the firewall forward) off the Shelby, and modify it to fit the Mach 1 chassis. This should be the last time I change the build plans...
