1967 Shelby GT-350 (Dark Blue)

Recommended Posts

Just started a simultaneous build of 5 Mustangs. This is #3. Just finished prepping the body for paint. Once I have all the bodies prepped I will paint them all the same day.

Nice clean work on the chassis Bill.

I'll be following along with your build. I have 5 of these sitting just waiting to be built.

Painted the body today. Not pleased with the results. The rattle can blue covered the white Tamiya primer as though it was a sponge. Will probably end up in the purple lake. I ran out of blue paint too.

Thanks Sam, The builds go a bit more efficiently and it allows forward progress even on days things go sideways. I have used the same process for a number of builds now.

Nice set of mustangs. I like how you display them in the diorama.

Thank you. It was one of the reasons I built the diorama.

Thanks Gene. My building has been on pause for a week. I started a new job after a month of unemployment. So I am adapting to that. I hope to get back at them soon.

After two weeks of not building, the paint job quality and color were unacceptable. Just dropped it in the purple lake.

Finally back at it after 3 weeks of 12-14 hour days at work. Got a lot of detail painting done. Started some assembly.

Been slow going lately due to a busy life. I have the interior done and engine in the chassis.

Great detail on the interior and chassis. I have the '68 kit (unbuilt) which I believe is the original tooling whereas I'm guessing the tooling for the '67 was updated.

Finally got the body clean by alternating between brake fluid and Super Clean. Unfortunately the weather around here is not permitting me to paint it. So in the box it goes until spring. :(
