Looks great!!!   

Did you spray the Future Shine?

 

Thanks for the kind words.  Yes I airbrushed the future  at 40 psi.  2 light coats then a good wet coat

Man that laid down nice, and I love the color!! I spray my craft paints at 20 psi give or take a couple, and I'm a little closer when I spray, at about 4-6 inches. Obviously your method works very well for you! I'd be very curious what the gold decals would look like on that blue. I might be tempted to put a couple on to see, lol.

Thanks for the feedback.  I am too afraid afraid to put the decals on now. Iv'e got the body just where I want it ( it could always be shinier though>>>)

Chaz, that is looking really nice so far, keep us posted. I've thought about getting this kit on a number of occasions, I just haven't pulled the trigger yet since I have an M2 diecast version.😎

Ok. Finally got the new windshield today and carefully glued it in place.  I’ll let it sit for a day or two and then start final assembly

This is a nice kit. It has been fun to build for me. Not overly challenging and the parts fit well together. I recommend getting one for yourself.  The windows  have been my only hang up.  They are close in size to the opening. The quarter panel windows really didn’t fit at all, I didn’t use them since I put the louvers on.

That's a good kit to get back into things with. I built it a few years ago and seem to recall it going together very well. Top marks on the paint too, very adventurous with great results.

I got the body polished and waxed and started the final assembly.  I'm trying not to rush and screw anything up.  I'll do a little more tonight.  I think it's coming out nice

Quick paint question, what do you thin your paint with? Etc..

I use windsheild washer fluid that I bought at the grocery store.  Nothing fancy at all.

Getting closer to “under glass”. The front valance is a challenge!  Here is where I’m at37AF80D1-2AAA-4CE9-947B-4973DE5941D1.jpeg.9388543660e9904983b10977a82cfcea.jpeg81B4BB00-DF27-415C-8500-D5B8B5571626.jpeg.412f3c59a1c535ae6c35d0833bb8677a.jpeg

Hey Chaz, looks great my friend. The Mustang with black trim (no chrome) looks darn cool.
