Mustang Outlaw

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, i know i haven't finished my latest builds, but this project is been waiting for me to start working on it for almost a year, i did mentioned to a couple of guys on FB but i was waiting to get all the parts for it, well, one of my FB friends started this build of (Small tire Drag car) and this project fits perfect to it, so i decide to jump in, good thing is is winter time and i can't paint at home so is perfect timing for scratch build and glue some stuff, so here it is...

Small tire Mustang single turbo

I got the rear small drag slicks, need to get some wheels for those, o have the front wheels and tires, resin hood and rear wing, and lots of kit parts that i'm going to use, needs to scratch build the roll cage and a lot of stuff, here's what i got so far...

Looking good! These cars are still a hot set up! They are kind of like modern day Tri-5 Chevys in the drag world.
