    That's super clean and nice. I love the wheels, glad you didn't cover them up. I wish I had like, 20 sets of those wheels just to put on every kit I build.

    That is awesome. I love this type of car and this Mustang looks good with a big wing on it.

    Good old Grabber Green...one of my favorite colors of all time, especially on a Boss Mustang. I like the engine too.

    Fantastic build. I really like it, makes me wish I could build with that kind of detail and complex painting.

    cool, never thought I'd see someone build the revised version of the Mustang. I have some pictures of it, if you don't have these already.

    That has pictures of both the older and newer versions.

    That looks really good, the wheels look nice too.

    Wow, nice! I have one sitting half-finished...really it just needs painted because I messed up the first attempt. That looks excellent.

    I have a resin IMSA Cougar body sitting around that I bought a while ago. Not sure if I'll be able to do anything with it, it's got a broken A-pillar and part of the spoiler is missing. But it's my favorite of all the IMSA cars.

    That's neat! Are you going to make it nice and shiny, or beat-up and broken like the ones in the game? I vote for shiny.
  9. slowbird added a post in a topic Kei car models? are there any?   

    looks good! I have a set of those wheels, I don't know what car to put them on yet. I kinda like the Suzuki Alto. Or maybe the Midget II, which is even smaller.

    Looks real nice, one of my favorite Mustangs. I know the transkit is expensive, but it looks like it's worth it, with the quality and detail included.

    Awesome! I have the #25 version of that kit, along with a couple of the IMSA ones that used the same basic tooling. I have a Penngwen resin Merkur body waiting to be built with a Camaro donor chassis, as well as a resin IMSA Cougar body that needs some repairs made before it can get built.

    Sigh, if only I had the ability to do them right.

    these are pretty rough, there's a long way to go...but it's something.

  13. slowbird added a post in a topic My all time biggest modeling pet peeve   

    oh boy...I agree on the chrome parts attached in bad spots. also, clear parts can suffer from bad sprue design. engine halves that don't line up no matter what you do, and tires that have severe marks on the tread from the mold, or got misaligned completely.

    also, radiator hoses are a pain in the butt no matter what you do but my biggest pet peeve is when I screw up and don't notice until it's too late. glue on a body panel, scratches on the windshield, cutting a part too deep, sanding too much from a body panel, or having the whole darn thing put together before I realize I missed a bunch of mold lines.

    This is a great tutorial. It's really amazing how much more goes into it than just gluing and painting...that's probably why my models look so primitive

    That's interesting...I did not know that. Pretty cool though.
