1967 Ford Mustang GT

Recommended Posts

Man, it's been some time since I completed a build, but I finally accomplished that feat again yesterday.  A pretty fun kit that went together well.  I added some wiring under the hood, raised the rear up a little so she wasn't a taildragger, and added parts box Goodyears & Cragars.  Paint is Tamiya TS-11 Maroon.  I kinda freaked out when looking at the pictures I took, noticing some slop along a few areas of panel blackwash. I was like wow are my eyes getting that bad?!  Now for the record I did have a harder time than normal while adding that detail.  First off, my little jar of blackwash had gone to pot, so I decided to use some black acrylic instead.  Then, my usual brush for this process must have grown legs sometime and walked off as I could not find it, so I made do with a larger one that didn't work as well and took a bit more cleanup along the lines.  Anyhow, I checked out the areas, even with a magnifying glass, and found that while yes there is a little paint still splashed over the panel edges it's no where near as noticeable as what the pictures make it out to be.  That being said, I'll probably still try to clean those areas up a little better.  Thanks for any comments or questions, on to the pictures.

SUPER nice and clean and the stance is perfect! I had to do the same thing with my '67.......the back end "sagged" too much and that bugged me to the point I had to lift things up a bit.

Very nice stang and amazing paint. 🙂  I wish AMT had figured out another way for the rear panel to attach to the rear quarters.  A little better engineering would result in not having the large seam under the end caps.  I went back to look at my builds and it must have annoyed me so much that I "fixed" the gap.

Very nice model. Beautiful paint.

I just sprayed a model with the same color, but it’s nowhere near finished.

Beautiful looking Mustang. The paint finish looks great and the detailing of the engine and chassis really look good also. I'm also a fan of the Tamiya TS-11 color.

Nice work on those end caps, Rex.  I agree the fitment isn't the best.

It is a great color.  This is the first time I've used it, but it certainly won't be the last.

Thank you guys for the comments.  I forgot to mention a couple other things about the build.  First off, I really didn't care about having the opening trunk so I glued it shut.  Also, this build marked the first time I used a Molotow chrome marker for the trimwork and have to say I really like the results.

Outstanding Mustang! Love the Cragars, love the color. That body style is one of the best ever. Nice work 👍
