  1. +Monogram 1/32 Scale Datsun+

    I wonder if the tooling still exists for the ol' Monogram 1/32 scale Datsun Pickup ? How about the others ? 1955 Chevy , 1979 Mustang , etc. , etc. ? These would be fantastic slump-busters !
  2. 1995 Ford Mustang GT

    AMT 1994 Ford Mustang GT built pretty much OOB but swapped the wheels out for Fujimi aftermarket units along with meaty disc brakes behind. Body badges cast separately using silicon molds and liquid styrene, then painted silver. Side scoops and bonnet vents opened up. Rattle can yellow exterior and black interior.
  3. 1965 Ford Mustang

    Another Norm Beechey car. This was the first ever Ford Mustang in the world to win a touring car race. The AMT Mustang kit was built pretty much out of the box. The plain steel wheels were detailed and tyres taken from my parts box. Decals are Patto's Place and paint is rattle can. The rear of the grille was sanded down and replaced with a fine mesh. The piece under the front bumper represents an oil cooler and the stance mirrors the real car. The window glass was replaced with clear acetate all round.
  4. Boss 302 Mustang

    Good morning all, I finally was able to get back to the bench after a long absence do to shoulder surgery and I jumped in with the new Boss 302 kit from Revell I did like this kit and thought it went together well I started by adding the basic plug wires and heater hoses but didn't go to extreme on details as I really was using only 1 arm then at the advise of my Brother inlaw I went with a Calypso Coral paint scheme i am happy with the way it turned out please enjoy and any comments or critiques are always welcome Thank you
  5. 2015 Mustang GT 5.0

    Hi folks, I finished this kit recently. As we all know, unfortunately there is only a Revell snap-kit for this 6th generation of the Pony. That kit isn't bad at all as a snapper and it sure has a nice body shape, but of course, it lacks a lot of details. That's why I put some work into it as follows: - lowered the body - added 19" rims + tyres - added brake discs from the spare parts bin - added windscreen wipers from the spare parts bin - added interior mirror from the spare parts bin - added exterior mirrors from the Shelby GT 500 kit - drilled the exhaust area open and added metal ferrules - added selfmade headlight printouts in tinted look in order to replace the horrible kit's parts I used Tamiya TS-101 primer to cover the kit's red plastic. I then painted the body using Tamiya dark metaillic Blue TS-53, cleared with Testors Wet Look. 'Nuff said, hope you like it: On the left hand side, you can see the "basic product", built by my son in 15 minutes. It took me 15 days to get my own done...
  6. 69 Boss

    When I found out that this model was coming out I almost cried. If it wasn't for the 1969 Mustang I would never have become a car guy and would never have gotten into model car building. By chance, one Sunday while getting ready for church, I passed a show on SPEED TV called the American Muscle Car and the 1969 Mustang was the subject of the show. They made the car sound like the greatest thing ever built and I became hooked on cars from that day forward. I watched the show every week, absorbing as much knowledge as I could. The color is Blue Angels Yellow. I had two issues with an otherwise excellent kit. The hood did not fit right, and the stripes for the hood got messed up, so i have to order new ones. Haven't had a chance to put on the clear coat yet. SAM_0450 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0451 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
  7. Hey, everyone!, I just wanted to show you the shifter I made for a friend. It was a fun project - in itself...a model all its own...Hope you like, thanks for looking!!
  8. 1980 turbo cobra

    My favorite 4 eye. Color is Ford mineral grey. Updated the engine with and 87 Thunderbird turbo coupe, and added front intercooler
  9. Hello, I start a new BB. The conversion is already in full swing. This Mustang will come along with the 5.0L engine of the 2014 Mustang GT and many other modifications. I started with the modification of the rear panel to mount other taillights. The part is from an Overtuned Maisto Mustang. Then I started to modify the engine compartment. Here I removed the battery, straightened everything with a sheet and filled with (my) version of GAP. It has also begun to make room for wider wheels. Then I have ever engine parts wrapped in color. And the engine itself too.
  10. 1998 Ford Mustang Super Stallion

    Revell kit mostly OOB, but had some simplified bits (which are actually carry overs from the snap-tite Shinoda Boss kit) swapped out with guts from the '99 Cobra. Front suspension was missing springs and shocks, so that and IRS came from the 99. However, while the interiors are the same sans small differences in door panels and seats, the SS's chassis had to be swapped with the Cobra's as the former had indents that were meant for the solid rear axle setup and wouldn't work with the IRS. My kit despite being sealed, had a horribly deformed (short shot?) steering wheel, so I found a replacement parts one from what appears to be a Monogram '70 Mustang Boss. The one off 5.4 DOHC engine (just DOHC heads on a SOHC truck 2 valve motor, which is different than the 4.6) while somewhat simplified and based on the 5.0 in the Shinoda Boss, was used as is considering you won't see much of it with the supercharger and all. However, the '99 Cobra's exhaust had to have the tips trimmed so it would not interfere with the body-to-frame fit frame and also had the tranny cross-member at a different place and shape and wouldn't work with the 5.4. So out went that and in came the brace from the Super Stallion chassis that was cut and placed to aprox it's original location. Paint is Testors Color Shift Emerald Turquoise cleared with Pledge. Color looks like a metal flake British Racing Green in the pics, though in certain lighting you can see somewhat of a shift to Blue.
  11. 1\18 decals

    Hi Iam looking for 1/18 decals for 1970 boss 429 mustang, the small white boss 429 behind the front wheel and silver lettering for mustang on the back. Does anybody make that size ? Thanks Sam
  12. 70 Boss 429 Mustang

    My first build in years since getting back into model cars recently. First time posting here. Thanks for looking.
  13. So a few weeks ago I was getting ready to put my old build up for sale then a paint can can fell on it. This forced me to rebuild the car with the extra mclaren body I had, but I’m not going to sell it. I’m trying to step up my chassis skills with this build as long with the entire detail of the car.

    When you love something you don't leave it. Well when you build you build a model you like, you build it again and again and that is what this project is about. I have done this one about 5 times. I did the motorcraft 3 times, the folgers twice. 3 I sold and two end up in a part box. But I wanted to start having a build collection. I have many but in boxes still and when I get a deal I buy them. Love the wheels and other parts for other racing projects. But I wanted to build it for me so I started to do more reserch on the car I found great references and now with more paciens and experience on the kit I decided to go for it.
  15. 65 Mustang mutt

    This is going to be a build of the first 1:1 car I owned. I bought it for $100 when I was 16, and yanked out the worn-out 6 and swapped in a 260 from a Falcon. It was a learning experience! The dents in the door are where I kicked it continuously. I was an angry young man! Ride height adjusted in the rear for the worn-out leaf springs. You've got to love metal axles! Chassis detail is not a priority on this one. The 4-lug wheels remained on the 1:1 car after the engine swap. I cast these in resin, cloned from a Tamiya Lotus Seven kit, thanks to fellow modeler from this site for the tip. The distributor on left supplied in the AMT kit is meager to say the least. Thanks to this site for a tip on casting your own distributor, I cast some pieces of wire insulation into a resin copy of a distributor from my parts box. The distributor vacuum advance sits right up front for all to see, so I thought I would add one. The following pics show the process of making one from some old pieces of sprue and a piece of wire. More to come..
  16. MPC Mustang FC 72 (HOTROD MAGAZINE) this was my 1st detailed build & contest entree. I installed every aftermarket plumbing, Aluminum Billet pulleys, A/N color coded fittings, Wrinkle Wall Slicks, even added the Chrome Valve Stems on it...for a EXTREMELY SIMPLE "BOX STOCK" build that would only take most beginners a few days to complete, took me about 350+ hours...(and I still wished I had 25-30 more to do everything that was in my head.. I had nothing but FUN all the way through.....
  17. 73 Mustang

    This is my first build in about 6-7 years. Wanted to start off somewhat simple and get back to the basics. Not a huge fan of the kit that this came in, but I made it work. I would love feedback with tips etc!
  18. Hi all, well after about two years I finally finished my model. This is probably the best level I have done. I bought a compressor to do air brush painting, chrome marker for window trim. Stuff I never did before. Undercarriage is based on some stock looks when they resprayed at the Shelby facilities. Still had some funky stuff with fitting things (hood warped, body doesn't fit exactly flush on passenger side, etc...) But overall, very pleased on final results. Of course I love to take photos so here they are!
  19. 1969 Shelby finished...finally

    I started this build way back around Christmas of 2016 and recently got around to finishing it. I hope it isn't too hard on the eyes. I had allot of problems with getting the frontal area to fit right, warped pieces and my eyes don't mix too well these days. At any rate it was a fun build when things went right. I call her "GOLD FINGER"! IMGP0010.PEF IMGP0019.PEF IMGP0012.PEF IMGP0024.PEF IMGP0030.PEF IMGP0034.PEF IMGP0031.PEF
  20. Texas DPS Mustangs

  21. This is my first procharger I built. the motor in this car is really special because it is scratch bulit out of styrene sheets.
  22. Hi all. Well this is been a slow ongoing model build. I finally got the body sprayed and just yesterday I clear coated it. This is the first time I've gone this this level of spraying using a Badger air brush. These pix are before clear coat. The undercarriage is based on some pre undercoated Shelby bodies I've seen on the web. They have that little over spray on them which I thought was cool to try. Next step is wet sanding/compounding the final clear coat. Really want to see if I can make this thing shine!
  23. Hi all, I've been working on a '68 Shelby Mustang for about 1 year now. Trying to get back into it from a long time not building. I wanted to really step up my game with an air brush. I just finished with the color and now I'm going to be going to the clear coating. I looked up Shelby Mustangs and they had this cool "over spray" on bottom of car when it was not undercoated. So I went the red undercarriage and did a little overspray for the bottom. Haven't done much else yet.
