baycolony Posted July 27, 2022 Share Posted July 27, 2022 Presented is the 1969 Boss 429 Mustang in 1/25 scale. This was a kitbash project which includes parts from 3 different kits (1/25 Revell 69 Mach 1 & Boss 302 kits, and 1/24 Revell Boss 429 kit). Additionally, tires were gotten from Fireball Modelworks. Basically, the hood scoop, engine, and arm rests are from the Boss 429 kit. Interior decals, exhaust, and wheels are from the Boss 302 kit, and the remainder are from the Mach 1 kit. Because of the differences is scale with the engine, I had to shorten the drive shaft, adjust the exhaust, remove some material from the motor mount area, and create an enlarged opening in the kit hood under the scoop. Also, the cutouts for the exhaust on the lower rear valence were filled in to accommodate the turned down exhaust tips indicative of the "Boss 9." The model was finished in MCW lacquer factory "Black Jade" paint and polished without clear coat. The engine detail includes the addition of plug wires, scratchbuilt smog system, and breather caps & lines. The antennae and base was also scratchbuilt. 8 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
