IMSA Mustangs

Recommended Posts

Hello All

I am wondering if someone can guide me on the interior colours of the 7/11 & Folgers IMSA Mustangs, are they close to the Revell colour callouts? Also any ideas on the 7/11 Blue & the Folger's red. Bear in mind I am Australia, so our colour range is pretty limited. Thanks

When I saw the Roush IMSA cars at his shop the entire chassis was a very light gray. 

7/11 blue is TS-15 Tamiya. Folgers was a met red on the darker side.....spray can...maybe mica red over gold???

Hello All

Sorry to rehash an old question. But would anyone have an idea on what colour the engine would be on the IMSA mustangs? I am thinking either Ford blue, Aluminium or gunmetal/metallic black. Could anyone shed any light on this? Just as another thought, is there a website or book that would have pictures? I am not finding a lot with a "google" search. Thanks

If your having problems with the Revell IMSA GTO Mustang kit decals there is an alternative to them. Indycals make all the kit version decals and a few more. They work great and conform to models compound curves.

Those are some awesome pictures on the proboards.  You rarely get to see that much detail (the body off) and in perfect focus.  Thanks JC.  My 30 year old build does not look that bad given the lack of reference photos back then.

Wow, that's a good thread and the full set of photos are almost overwhelming. Looks like that car was restored to a very high standard.

Kinda makes me appreciate the model all over again - it's pretty accurate, with plenty of opportunity to add your own detail.

Hello All

Thank you all, your input has been awesome. I do have the Indycal's 7/11 decals (& the Folgers for that matter) which is why I am trying to get as much detail as I can. Again thank you all

Hello All

One last quick question (I hope!!!) Does anyone know of a painting mask set for the body of the 7/11 IMSA mustang. I couldn't find anything obvious on line. Failing that does anyone have any tips or tricks they used to paint theirs? I am mainly concerned with the bonnet area. I had a look & seems more complex then I originally thought. I thought where the front of the bonnet is, is the demarcation of where the blue ends. It also has rounded corners, which I struggle with especially when there are no cheat lines. Thanks again.

The blocks on most T/A cars were black / gun metal colour. If you look at the photos you can see the block colours. As for the masking templates for the IMSA cars, there were none. If you want to make your own, photo-copy the decal sheet and transfur it to wide masking tape.

If still wondering about the Folger Red. Ford used Strawberry Red for their Folgers cars. 1989?-1992? Or so.  BC4927DB-DD9D-4819-A8ED-FAB6880539C3.thumb.jpeg.6ca00c2857e7b42b2cfbd3a5411a62cc.jpeg
