Tamiya Mustang gt4 "street legal"

Recommended Posts

Just finished my Tamiya GT4 mustang, excellent kit and basicly fell together as most tamiya kits do.

Paint is all Tamiya spray bombs, French blue and white for the stripes. Wet sanded and buffed the clear.

I went for more of a "street" car that was converted over to a race car. Box stock other then the paint changes.

I cannot wait to see what Tamiya brings out next.

Very nice build looks awesome. And that is coming from a Chevy Camaro Gen5 owner :)

Jared, that is one sweet build. I love the looks of the new Stang. You can still tell it's a Mustang but it also has a hint of exoticar as well.

Very nice, the color works perfectly on this car.  Very sharp, and clean.  I guess I will have to ge.t one of these

The paint and body details are great looking. Looks like the perfect weekend track day car.

Very nice! That is already the second excellent build that I see of that kit on this forum, done as a "street version". I have mine to do yet but there is a big chance it will be done in blue with stripes, too!

Really like this model!! The few I have seen built are very impressive to me. This one is no exception! This will definitely be my next model purchase!

Hello. Great Job! did you clear the Blue or just polish?

Thanks, George

Gorgeous build...really like the choice of color.  You are right in that the Tamiya kits do come together nicely.

Beautiful finish and a equally nice color.  It'd be great if Tamiya did a normal road version so you could use the body of the race car but have a civilized interior

I did clear over the stripes and blue to get rid of the tape lines from the stripes. Then it was wetsanded and buffed

Beautiful build. The paint job is almost the same as my 1:1 2017 GT road car.
