I thought it was a good idea at the time. Boy did I learn. Building 2 of the same car at the same time is not for me. There wasn't any real problems, it was just too tedious for my liking. I ended um building them both close to box stock. I did swap out the intakes and carbs for something out of the parts box. I painted the front sway bars different. One got a red one, the other yellow. The RS has black headers and the standard gold has white headers. The RS has Goodyears the other has Michelins. Both have black interior trimmed with chrome and simulated wood. I only had one side mirror so the gold car has one from the parts box. Both cars are trimmed out with my home brew of BMF. During the builds, I ran out of my usual Testors flat black. So I hopped over to the hobby shop and they were out. I thought I'd give the acrylics a go so I bought flat black, flat white, gloss yellow, gloss red, gloss brown and gloss white. the steering wheels are painted with the brown. I am pretty pleased with how they turned out. I hope you like them. Thanks for looking
This one is officially done. I thought I'd give her a pro touring look. I got it as a glue bomb and I did my best to bring her back from the dead. The rear glass was missing so I had to make one. I've never taken a kit this far before. Some of the new techniques were battery cables, fuel lines, brake lines, coil and spark plug wires, heater hoses and radiator hoses. This was the first time I've used wood patterned contact paper. This was a fun little build considering it didn't cost me a dime. The build thread is here. Thanks for looking.
I remember these Mustangs and the other camp, the Camaro and Firebirds from the same era in HS during the mid '90s. I had my 1978 Ford Thunderbird at the time, I was so proud I waxed flat paint on the big Bird. But a lot of kids in my HS had parents that bought them fairly new cars and I still remember clear as day this LX notchback a football player rolled up in. It was the only time a geek like me talked to a BMOC like him. The Mustang came from a Ford executive in Dearborn (I saw the paper work) ordered in this color with red cloth, 5.0 liter, manual trans, Pony wheels, etc. Clean was an understatement. With in a short time all the years of being cared for vanished, the new teenage owner beating the poo out of the ol gal. I still remember how that sun light bounced off the paint work and that sound......... I have been waiting around 20 years to build a replica of what I saw that day, still have the All American Models LX notch. I am just fine with the kits issues. Just maybe I will change them in another kit but for now this kit is allowing me to go back to a time into my teenage years to some of the moments that were good. This is just the start, four coats of Duplicolor and four coats of clear from Testors lacquer system. Then will be wet sanded and polished to a mirror shine. The wheels are the Pony wheels off the '93 Monogram drop top kit. I have no idea if they will fit right but with some careful nudging I will get them to fit. Now if I can only find a 1978 Thunderbird I can make into a blue/silver Diamond Jubilee Edition like mine to park next to this pony.
