Great looking build. That hood decal is a son of a gun ain’t it?

Looking very nice.  You would have thought I would have built one by now.  I will eventually get at least one of almost every early (65-73) stock Mustang built.  It's too late for the 50th and 55th but maybe by the 60th anniverary.  I did manage to pull together 50 built kits for the 50th by including all scales from 1/16 to 1/43 and displayed them at the NJ NNL in 2014.

Well Done!

Not built a Revell Boss myself, but I see what tbill is referring to.

The worst part of that decal, is it is two parts, a left and a right , and they must overlap, not to mention trying to get them to conform to the hood shape . I had a heck of a time with mine, and never got it to conform perfectly.

I see, good to know....because I do have one that I at some time should get to.

Not sure if it's just me, but that rear quarter window post bothers me. On the '69 Shelbys I've built, I have removed them and foiled the "glass".

Got the hood decal the best I could using MicroSol and MicroSet. Still have a few wrinkles but not to bad.

I did cut the front glass from the rear so that I didn't have the "runnners" running front to back.

 

Thanks for the comments. Not to bad for a Mopar Man I guess

I had the same problem , that ‘nose’ just has too many curves/corners I think for the decal, cause I soaked the daylights out of mine and got the same results as you did. 

 

PS my original post  wasn’t knocking the job you did, just trying to let you know I knew how tough that decal set is to apply to that hood having done it recently myself.

Very nice. Two minor suggestions, paint the battery caps and the radiator cap.

Great looking paint work. I had a co-worker years ago who pick up one of these when they were just 12 or 13 year old used cars. It took him over a month to blow up the engine. Turns out he wasn't the street racer he thought he was. He patched it up and sold it. So if someone in Sacrament remembers a Calypso Coral Boss 302 that never seemed to run right you might have had an unbalanced cast crank.

Sweet build. I have one of those in the stash unbuilt. I also have an original annual AMT 70 Mustang, Which is a restorable glue-bomb, which I may cut up, and combine with a Revell 69 Mach 1. I haven't had it in my hands for at least 10 years.

Definitely great paint work - love that color combination.  I've had thoughts of building a convert in that scheme.  (It will have to be the sportsroof body though as i haven't seen a kit of a '70 drop-top.)

Nice build of a kit with somewhat goofy breakdown - who thought of separating the floor pan and 'frame' that way???  I know people comment on the windows but that front-end still bugs me. Maybe if someone does a 3D print conversion for the Revell '69 kit, we can get a correction for the 24th scale out of it.
