Gauging interest - 50 Years of Mach 1 CBP

Recommended Posts

Would anyone be up for a 50 Years of Mach 1 CBP? The build window would be all Summer, and the only build requirement is that it’s a Ford Mustang Mach 1.

Uh oh - I can't pass this one up.  As I have not built a 73 yet that's what I would probably do.

I might have interest, depending on the time frame. I have a 1/12 Mach 1 that is waiting to be built!

 I built that one a long time ago but it ended up breaking apart and it had a bad paint job so I bought another one for about $100 which of course is still in the box.  Painting something that large can be a challenge.  When I build it I might even consider taking it to an autobody shop.

You cannot have too many Mach1's.

Lucky to find one for only $100! I bought mine for closer to $250 I think (granted I bought a 1/12 Mercedes AMG SLC kit for only $75 when they have been going on ebay for between $2-300.) It will be interesting to paint but I'll be buying auto paint in a spray can to paint it.

I would like to join. I have no mustangs in the collection. Any recommendations on a kit?

I would say the Revell ‘70 Mach 1, you could maybe also get the new 1969 boss 302 kit and get some aftermarket decals.

I have seen that one a number of times. Looks like a quality kit.

Sounds good! The time frame would be June 21 (first day of Summer) to September 23 (last day of Summer).

Would you allow a Phantom mach1 build, a "what if?" of sorts build?

Yep, sure would! I’d allow anything from restorations to OOB’s, factory stock to Phantoms - as long as it has a nod to the Mach 1, it’s allowed!

I think a few of these are Phantoms or at least highly modified.  While everyone thinks Eleanor was a Mach1, it wasn't.  It was a 71 or 72 sportsroof with a 73 front grille and bumper and the standard hood.  Even the Foose Mach1 may not have started as real one.

Kits to consider using:

MPC 69 Mach1

Revell 69 Mach1

Matchbox 1/43 69 Mach1

 Revell 70 Mach1

Monogram 1/32 Mach1

Amt or MPC 71-73 Mach1

Lindberg Mustang (Maybe for a Foose version - it's a bad kit).

Otaki 71 Mach1

MPC Bounty Hunter or Revell Blue Max funny cars

AMT/MPC 74 Mach1

No kits available for the 03/04 Mach1 unless you count the Mach III

There are more but they are rare and/or expensive.

I will post some older builds and opened but unbuilt kits as we get closer to the start.

To the participants of this CBP, any ideas as to what you’re going to build? If you would like to keep it secret until the build starts, that is completely fine. If you have would like to build more than one vehicle, that also fine. This CBP is not limited to just one build.

I think I am going to do a barn find with a cool back story. And some pieces of the kit will be reminiscent of those memories. I’d like to do a barn dio with it, if that would be ok?

I will be building the Doyusha 1/12 Mustang as a pro touring build, using parts from the 1/12 GT500 kit and some 3D printed wheels.
