I'LL BE WATCHING CHRIS, I GOT ONE OF THE '66 COUPE BODIES

That’s my next project.  I’ll be keeping it motorized with original chassis but super detailing with luxury interior and correct color scheme.

BAre metal foil work done.  Also a shot of the rear air vent selector that I scratch built.  Out of focus, but you get the idea.

Half way through the scratch build of the side mirrors based on this first pic.  Sheet styrene cut with hobby knife and sink into Miliput clay to  harden then sand, and paint chrome.

Sank these styrene rectangular pieces in Miliput clay and then will trim and sand before chrome painting. The supports I have to hit twice on each side using excess paint on the tip on purpose.  It creates a pooling effect that makes for a more realistic rounded look.

Really well done with the bare metal foil work Chris, especially bearing in mind that your hands would be shaking badly.

I like BMF a lot, and it is such a nice material to work with, sometimes quite forgiving when you get it slightly wrong.

I shall be trying out a Molotow Liquid Chrome pen later today on the latest Rolls-Royce build. Still using BMF for the larger areas of chrome like radiator grille and bumpers ( fenders), but I thought the chrome pen at 1 mm tip would be good for finer work. It will be experimental of course. As well as the crimson leather interior work I am in the process of adding fabric headlining, walnut burr dashboard and door trims, crimson leather sun visors and cranberry felt carpets.

Superb Mustang you are putting together there.... good luck with your build!

WOW, THE BASE CAME OUT GREAT

Thanks much. Keep in mind the pic of the mirrors was taken before trimming and sanding.  They will be rectangular.

Scratch built side mirrors on.  They’re ok.  My first attempt.  I’m not that happy with them but they’re not too bad.  Just too small for my old shaky hands to make well.  4A643B43-4FD1-499F-9500-9B4DCEEAA64A.thumb.jpeg.2d1cb6468e331fe0c25bc116bbe0a00c.jpeg

Finished this, will move final on the street photos to Under Glass section.  Had some trouble with the white letter decals.  I followed a tip and used Dulcote under and on top of the decals, but they still split.  I have more so I suppose I could strip them and try again. F019C7D5-D62B-4817-92D4-1F6567A1E8A2.thumb.jpeg.e54d2012a69929d35007ba2a3697fb0a.jpeg14964E85-ACDF-4440-939E-C6D7583DA63C.thumb.jpeg.28035aae965cf0889d127de09eee277c.jpeg5CAD200C-4098-44AC-B26A-6398392E647C.thumb.jpeg.912578c70cfec9e86b0bff1122df0cd0.jpeg
