Thanks Eric! Good shots there.

Here's some quickie photos of my progress.

The body and wheels are painted an old Floquil Railroad color clad "CSX New Image Blue". I found it while searching Ebay for Floquil paint.

The interior is three shades of Tamiya gray. Sky Gray for the majority of the interior, Sky Gray and a drop or two of Neutral Gray for the carpet, Medium Gray for the cloth panels in the seats.  Those will get a light overspray of Sky Gray to tone down the brownish hue. 

More to come.

Rex, I have a Dave Panek Whelen Edge that is dead on for the pictured car. I contacted Dave on face Book and he hooked me up. I'll use the kit's mounting brackets.

Al that is a priceless link, thank you sir!

Great idea, great progress! Looks like they switched to using Camaros by now though... :

Oh they've used GTO's, G-8's and Camaros since the Mustang. 

The Mustang is iconic for it's use in law enforcement and other specialized tasks.

I saw that. Makes sense, instant torque.

This one's coming along, waiting more free time!

Love the U2 and the chase cars.

They have used even Corvettes for that.   I'd chase it even in a Power Wheel if had the chance :)

Here is a C5 Corvette chasing the Dragon Lady.  It seems it only got to 3rd gear.  I'd guess the chase is barely  100 MPH.

Thanks,

any updates on the Mustang

Mustang production halts during the work week. Chassis is complete, interior 90% complete and the body needs a repaint. Seems there was just enough humidity here the day I sprayed the body to create what I see as an unacceptable finish. I'll post more tomorrow.

Ah...  Air Force blue.  :)  We had a car that color when I was a kid.  Dad got the paint from the base and sprayed it himself.

My old friend Charles Ricks used to own the one from the article, or one just like it. Awesome car with a very cool history!

The interior is 99% finished at this time. I didn't have any thing in my spares box that replicated a radio correctly, so I made one. The mic will be carved from sprue mounted with a coiled wire cord. The body has been repainted and awaiting polishing.

The color is spot on for that Air Force blue. Looking really good.

I have been planning this build for years now all due to finding that "Strata Blue" color. I was looking for Floquil paint on eBay and saw this color. I googled the rail line and saw that the "CSX New Image Blue" was a dead ringer.
