    People use to look at my S-10, and say it's too colorful.

    Love those cars. 
    Pity you didn't have all the original wheel covers from the kit. 
  4. Lovefordgalaxie added a post in a topic a VERY large gallery of my models. please see!   

    Good looking models!!
    Love the Mustang collection you have there.

    Nice looking Chevrolet. Loved the Ford rear bumper. I built the convertible version of this kit, a long time ago. It got destroyed when I moved back in 2006. It was red with a gray interior. Wish I still had it.

    He never says it on the video. He describes the full lap on Interlagos racetrack, with the particularities of each turn, and all tricks to drive there. He states nothing about the car itself. The video is a fragment of a larger documentary. The full version is really hard to come by.

    Useless. full of mistakes.
    Ford Corbel, Chevrolet Opal, Maverick GET, and many many other errors, including dates and actual facts about the cars.

    Example of Maverick on races.
    The Maverick was a Divisão 1 racer, and most ran on Class C. The competitors were the Chevrolet Opala, and Dodge Charger. 
    On this race, the Maverick dominated, as always. Look at the results, highlighted in yellow.

    That problem seems to be related to Windows.
    On my HP laptop I have windows 10, and sometimes I can't even access the site, not to mention having to log on every time. On my desktop, that is 5 years old, and runs Windows 7, I have no issues at all.

    No special prep at all. Tamiya is specially formulated for plastic. Just mist the first coat, and go ahead from that. Like Tamiya shows all rugosity below it, if you prime, the paint will show every single orange peel of the primer coat, specially at hard to sand places. Without primer, it's smooth land all the way.

    The car on the video is still a import Maverick, with skinny tires and front drum brakes. Emerson was the guy that helped Ford to tune the Maverick for the GT version, that had a completely different spring/shock combo, and had a improved front suspension geometry. The final car also was equipped with F-70X14 Firestone Wide Ovals, and was about two and a half inches lower.
    The final product, the Maverick GT with the standard 302 V8 was a better handling machine than it's competitors, and out handled the '73 Mustang (year of launch here) at Interlagos. The Maverick GT is a sports car, some sort of a legend here, and a good original one goes for about 160 000 Reais these adays (about 50K Dollars).
    The Maverick dominated the Stock car category in racing, winning it all from about 1973 to 1975, when the gas crisis made the category go the way of Dinosaurs....
    The Maverick GT is a dream car of mine. Would own one over any other sports car, including the Mustang (never looked so good as the Maverick)
    Here is a all original GT:

    A Fantastic Vision. The launch of the Ford Galaxie 500 in Brasil.
    Sorry guys, the video is in Portuguese, but it's pretty cool. It was filmed by Dana and Ford to promote the new Galaxie.

    Yes, the Fitty-Volks as people called it. The car was under restoration sometime ago. Have to take a look to see if it's back on the road.

    Tamiya usually are 100ml. A lot less than a "regular" can of general purpose paint you get at auto paint stores, supermarkets, etc. Those usually have 350ml.
