I have a minimum of 5 of the 2010-2014 Mustangs. Started gathering kits that had some of the parts so I could duplicate my 2013 GT which you can see at the bottom. 2010 Revell for the base, 2013 Boss 302 for the front facia, etc. Then they released the pre-painted 2014 GT which included all the emblems also. Problem solved except for a re-paint/re-stripe. But I then had to buy the 2015 snapper because it had the correct wheels. Just one more thing, just one more, one more..... But maybe I can kit bash a 2012 Boss 302 like this. Does anyone know if the 1969 Boss 302 "C" stripe will work on this?
I, for one, wish Revell had left the 92-97 CV to Lindberg and gone with the 98-2011 body style. The differences and shortcomings noted in a direct comparison would have been muted and we would have a police car of a 14 year production model. I'm sure they had their reasons but for the money spent on the 1992 they could have had a more current model.
In 1970 I saw my first Boss 302 in Grabber Blue, my first of anything in that color. Who would have thought that 43 yrs later I'd again be able to get a 5.0 liter Mustang in Grabber Blue with more horse power and twice the gas mileage. I'm glad I lived that long.
Well, if we are going out of the country: I second the BMW 2002 tii BMW Bavaria or 3.0 CS Citroen SM Aston Martin DB5 with obvious movie tie-in (the stock Doyusha kit is bumping $100) Find/rescue/remold any of the early '60s Ferrari road cars please 275GTB, 250GT Lusso (oh, the Lusso)
1: 289 Cobra (such a hole in the pantheon of great cars. Could be done all the way from they used to call a "secretary's car" (white wall tires with wire spoke wheels) to full on FIA competition, each one with just a judicious parts swap. Wheels, wind screens, and dress up parts, or not, and a slightly different body for the "cut back" doors and you're there. Its beyond me as to why there isn't a modern kit of this important car. When did the AMT kit come out: 1962 or 63? 2: 67-68 Cougar 3: 1970-71 Montego 4: 250 SWB Ferrari
I've got a couple in the stash. AFAIK, the body (with minor mods and a bit of fender widening) is only accurate for a few races in early 1965 (Daytona, Sebring, Nurburgring). The wheels OTOH need to be swapped out for Halibrands, one of the first changes Carol Shelby made when he was given the job by Ford. https://revslib.stanford.edu/catalog/rw172kw0571
I saw one at the NNL West a couple of weekends ago. Even for a snapper, it looks very nice and well designed. Re the 1-to-1: how different are the body panels between the race and street versions? Probably just enough to make a straight build impracticable, I'd guess.
Went to NNL West yesterday. Couldn't find a C-6R Corvette kit or any interesting resin bodies BUT I'm OK with what I did get. A Revell '98 Saleen Mustang kit to use with the resin Saleen coupe body I have had for a while. It has a short-shot tire but with a bit of strategic placement it should be useful. ($5). Photo-etch sheet for the Tamiya Turbo Capri (impulse purchase). Aoshima Mclaren F1-GTR that I've seen for $60 and up ($40). And for once I won a door prize. Unopened Monogram 94-95 Nascar Thunderbird. The decals are uninteresting but the parts may be useful for other kits. And the price was right.
