Sorry to say Greg, but 1 of the eleanor's is going under the knife haha. In addition to the eleanor's I got from you, I ordered a 67 coupe from jeff Ballard and will be making a 67 Eleanor coupe, modeled after my own 1:1 long term project. Just waiting on the coupe to come in then will be starting on that, that'll be 3 mustangs at once. Will update pics when I fix or replace my computer.

Here is a shot of Gregs kit. This photo is missing the trim rings that He cast in resin also.

I'd also like to know how you created the trunk area, especially with the Shelby style spoiler and 1/4 panel extensions. Do you have any pics of the build before primer?

I don't want to derail this but since I started with a body from Greg. I cut the roof off all the way to the spoiler just infront of the upswing. Then I added a peice of flat styreen. This is the only pic of the plug before putty and carving the new trunk lines.

This shot showes the putty being worked and the new trunk being roughed in.

Raul what about using the deck lid from the AMT 66 hardtop? Would that work as well?

Why don't you have Greg cast this & the roll bar?

:P

Hey Greg, just got my coupe conversion done to one of the Eleanor bodies I got from you, it's in filler primer. I have all the pics of the conversion in the 64 1/2- 73 cbp thread.

There is one listed on emodelcars.

That Eleanor kit is from the Master Caster as we call him here, it is worth the money, I got one from Greg, you wont be disappointed at all

I guess he has decided to keep making them, I know a while back he said he was done casting Eleanor, but I guess there is still a demand for him to keep casting it.

Hey Raoul!! You should bust out that convertible version mold and we could start an Eleanors war!
