  1. Oooo a Mustang kit, and a race car kit, all in one (see my signature for more details 😁). I’m gonna have to get my hands on one. Or, ya know, a few...
  2. Thanks, David. Good catch. Yeah, the headlight area and front and rear pans still need some work yet. After that, the body should be ready for another coat of primer and paint prep.
  3. I'm back on this build now that I got the Mach 1 done. This Mustang has been a WIP for over 25 years now. Here's what I got so far. The body is primed and the panel lines were darkened. The chassis, interior, and dash assembly are also in primer. Lots of loose parts are in plastic bags, same with the glass and tires. The engine isn't too bad, but could use some touch-ups. And the decals are a little discolored, but still decent. The lever on the steering column broke off a while ago - that's what's in the plastic "vial" on the left. Next step is to figure out what needs redone and what is fine as-is.
  4. I agree. Thought I had it...not so easy as it looks.
  5. That would look awesome! I think that’d look great beside the BRE Datsun.
  6. Well, here it is. I finally got it done. I used the Revell Hot Rod Mach 1 kit for the base, and used the hood, front fascia assembly, and wheels from the Revell Boss 302 kit. Paint is Testors Arctic Blue Metallic over gray primer. I had to cut a hole in the 302 hood for the CJ Shaker scoop. Apparently, I didn't cut it big enough, which is why the hood won't sit flush. Aside from that, it built up pretty nicely. Overall, I’m pretty satisfied with how it turned out. It’s not perfect, but it’s certainly not my worst work. Partial build thread here.
  7. Outstanding work on this build, Toriano. It looks great in that paint job. Keep up the good work.
  8. That would be cool. Just a little inspiration idea. This is one of the Alan Fraser Racing Team Tigers that ran back in ‘65 and ‘66.
  9. Nice work, William. Looks great.
  10. Beautiful build, Ludwig. The Grabber Blue looks great with the white interior.
  11. Excellent progress, Lorne. I think it’d look really good in Hot Magenta.
  12. Looks like it’s coming along nicely. Keep up the good work.
  13. This is gonna be a tough little road rocket. Looks great so far - keep up the good work. If I may ask, what color is the body going to be?
