MPC 73 Mustang

Recommended Posts

Well it’s done such as it is . Not a very good kit but I won’t blame the outcome totally on the kit . I’m sure I had something to do with the less than stellar results . Used Perfect Match medium blue and their clear . Used Pegasus wheels . Sits too high in front of maybe too low in the rear . No engine pics because it is a joke . Maybe the next one will be better .

Very nice Ray.  I like the rear painted bumper which blends in nicely with the body.

Very nice Ray!  Great color and wheels, you shouldn’t be hard on yourself...I think it looks nice...

I like it. I am thinking the rear wing supports should lean forward not rearward though.

 It's a nice looking model , don't be so hard on yourself . A little paint work around the windows and the door handles would brighten it up quite a bit .

Thanks everyone. To be honest I forgot to do the chrome window trim till after I installed the windows. As long as I have building kits I still screw up.

I like it a lot! Great paint scheme and cool rolling stock! Let's say the stance looks wrong because the the engine is currently out of the body for some performance enhancing...?)

I think it looks great. The dark body color and trim don't photograph well or show the body lines as nicely as some brighter color do.

Good eye on that.  I trained you well Jedi. 😉

Looks amazing. I actually like the dark blue with the dark decals. Much nicer than if you used white decals I think.

Thanks Gareth. I think silver stripes would have looked better.

Yea, a dark silver would work too, but the hood might look a bit too over the top in silver, and leaving it black you end up with three different colours then. If you used silver decals you'd probably be wishing you used black instead, haha.

I like the black stripes and hood treatment. Gives it a stealthy look. Well done on this one!
