‘66 Mustang

Recommended Posts

This is the first model I have done in many years.  I’m proud of the way it turned out.  I’m trying to broaden my skills,  and constructive feedback is welcome.

Nice job, the paint looks beautiful and nice work on painting those very difficult wheels. 

On your next one, be wary of the mold parting line at the C-pillar (and A-pillar) that most car models have. You can see how the top of the fender is not straight. Take a little extra time and sand and fill those areas. Otherwise it looks great.

Thanks for the tip!  The body on the next one about to finish up was awful. I did my best,  hopefully I’ll finish that one up tonight or tomorrow

Very nice paint job and the body trim is very cleanly done. One area that you might consider next time is in the engine compartment. Look at some photos of the engine area of a 1:1 car of your next build. Little spots of color that match the under hood area of the 1:1 will bring this area alive and it's easy to do.

Very nice build! What color is that? One pic looks blue, the other pic looks charcoal. I really like the looks of this paint job.
