Scale I Build

Found 2 results

  1. Greetings all. I have recently gotten back into model building after a 12 year or so hiatus and am planning on a rather ambitious project. I am planning on building both cars that were involved in the iconic chase scene from "Bullitt" as well as building a display scene that shows one of the segments of the chase as well. Fortunately, I am from and still live in San Francisco (that's right, Native San Franciscans still exist and live here) so getting to the locations for reference photos of the buildings and streets will be a bit easier for me rather than having to rely on what's on film. For the cars, I plan on using the Revell-Monogram 1:25 scale "2 'n 1" kits for the Mustang GT Fastback and the Dodge Charger and building them as they come directly out of the box. Paint and detail work should be easy for the Charger (Flat Black int./ext.). Detail work on the Mustang should be easy as well (use the film as reference for interior colors,) not using the grille on the front of the car, not applying the GT Badges, etc. However, I find myself running into a bit of difficultly when it comes to the painting of the Mustang. I know that the the official name of the color of the Mustang is Highland Green, but I have not been able to find any business that sells this color specifically. Instead, I have found a handful of shades of Green that look similar to Ford's Highland Green. These colors are: British Green (Tamiya TS 9 Spray) Racing Green (Tamiya TS 43 Spray) Deep Green (Tamiya XF 26) Dark Green (Tamiya XF 73--JGSDF) Dark Green (Tamiya XF 81) Dark Green 2 (Tamiya XF 70) JN Green (Tamiya XF 11) JA Green (Tamiya XF 13) Black Green (Tamiya XF 27) NATO Green (Tamiya XF 67) If anyone has done a similar build/project, what would be an acceptable substitute for Highland Green? Either in the form of an individual color or a mix of colors? Does anyone know of any business that sells Highland Green specifically for plastic models? Also, are there any other details that I should be aware of or may have over-looked in my research for this project for the Mustang and/or the Charger? Thanks for the help, everyone! Once I figure out the paint problem, I'll start to post up pictures of the build on the cars.
  2. Just got this today as part of my Christmas haul. I have all of the tools that I'll need to build this correctly. Just need to buy a few jars of paint and figure out what to do with the grille assembly and I'll be on my way to completing this project as my triumphant return to the world of scale modeling
