IDK if I would say "lack of love"...from '79 to present there's almost a cult-like following (at least in 1:1)

Yes us Fox guys are an evil cult! Hehehehe. Gets worse when ya narrow it down to those evil and picky Four Eye Foxes..(79 to 86) oh wait I'm one of those evil Four Eye guys lol

Shhhh Rick, you're blowing our cover!

In all honesty, most guys who build model Mustangs seem to concentrate on the early cars. Whenever a late model Mustang in scale is posted, it is largely ignored. Having their own build threads ensures that they get the love they deserve!

GT500 looks AWESOME,Jonathon!!! :D :D :D

Rick,I used to run the roads in a four-eyed Fox myself,and wouldn't mind another! If I can't find the perfect minitruck for a daily (to save the mileage on the GT,and to haul bikes and such with),I hope to find another ol Fox (four eyes or not-4 banger automatic...4 banger for MPG's,slushbox so Mama can drive it on occasion as well B) )...I can slap a 3 bike roof rack on there,and when I need to haul trash and such,fold the rear seats down,slap a hitch on the GT and tow the trailer (which I currently have no way of towing... :blink: ) when I need to haul something big,teeheehee!

I gots me one of them 2010 GT's on layaway (along with a buttload of Stang kits lost in the house-fire) that I'll be paying on this weekend,picking up soon :)

Got some work done on the 2010, I got a good part of the chassis painted( going by pics from the build review on the 1/16th one).

I have to say that this one of my better paint jobs, I took the pic just after I finished painting it. There are a few spots that I need to sand and re spray, I have only put down one wet coat so far.

Very nice colour Jonathan, i was thinking about getting the 2010 stang as iv had a few of the other 05 onwards stang's but i need to know if some of the parts like chassis interior ect are interchangable, im guessing some are but if they are il be sticking a GT500 engine and interior straight in the 2010 stang then start custom work on the body.

Decklan, allow me to spend money for you by telling you that Revell has released their 2010 GT500 kit to stores. No need to transplant any part back and forth, unless you have them already. If so, the earlier GT500 powertrain will swap nicely into the 2010GT.

Sadly, these car suffer from too shallow of wheelwells, both front and rear. The 1:1 cars can swallow up 20"x10" fronts, and the rears have seen 22"x12". Their scale brethren, however, cannot even swallow the stock wheels well, let alone aftermarket sets (I:E.....Pegasus, Aoshima, Fujimi) without massive surgery to do so. Lowering only complicates this matter more. I am still working on a proper fix for the fronts, but the rears have proven to be do-able with a razor-saw, #11 Exacto, and some styrene surgery/relocation/addition.

Are you talking about the big scale GT500,or have they released a this scale version? I'm going to the LHS that was semi-local to the old house today to pic up a layaway (that's long overdue-it includes all the S197's I lost in the fire and a 2010 GT),I'll look see if they have one (this scale...as much as I love the GT500's I won't be building a big scale,don't enjoy em as much) Now I'm all anxious!

Man! I hope he's talkin the smaller scale GT500. If so I'm all over it. As far as i know i have at least one of each of the 05 to 09 kits and plan to continue with the 10+

decided on my 10 I'm gonna match her to her 05 sister

S7301012.jpg

I styled her to look like a 67 as ya see cause that's what I see when I look at an 05. Now on this '10 i can't decide if I want to take out the GT grille or use it to my advantage to give the car a 70 look. Hehe. We'll see where that goes when i can pull out the 70 body to start eyeballin the 2. If i decide not to use the 70 styling I will cut out the grille and those obnoxious fog lights and install a modded 68 grille in. If i got the 70 route another thing I may do to keep the style will be filling on the rear quarter glass and replacing it with a 69/70 quarter glass either an aftermarket style applique or an actual cut out window

Bradley is so right about this. I had to do some modding to my KR to get its wheels under it after lowering it to a more acceptable ride height. But oh well we learn these tricks an are able to use em on future builds. I've learned exactly how to lower these cars and it appears the same trick works on the '10 hehehe

OK, so since I was invited to join this CBP, I'll try to catch everyone up with my WIP that I have going in the On The Workbench section. I am starting with the Revell '07 Shelby GT500 kit.

GT50001.jpg

I'll be using a set of Pegasus 225/45/18 tires in place of the kit tires and Tamiya TS-49 Bright Red paint.

GT50002.jpg

The body is painted.

GT50005.jpg

The engine is complete and installed in the chassis.

Yes, the Revell 1/25th scale 2010 GT500 is in shops now, along with the 1/12th scale. The 1/25th scale will have a red GT500 on the box art. I saw the box art car at Toledo NNL, and it looks the same as in the box photo. I snagged one last week when I was in HobbyTown USA.

The chassis is different from the 05-09 units, but is a mimic of the '10 GT.

After I took this picture, I decided that I didn't like the shift knob, so I'll change the shifter.

Mike: Hello old friend,long time no'see'! Build's looking FANTASTIC (as usual coming fromyour bench :) ). I LOVE those in red! We saw one filling up earlier today on the way back from the LHS (no longer local since we moved,but been going there over a decade and it's a local owned gig I like to support),we were filling up at the pump behind him-he in his '09 GT500,,us in our '94 GT Ragtop (both red,BTW)...it just felt too cool,LOL! Can't waitto see more on this one :D

PS: Where can one order those Pegasus tires? As we all know,the ones in the kits are kinda...crappy and out of scale\profile. Thanks :)

Bradley: Thanks for the info,I didn't know it was even coming (the '10 GT500 in the smaller scale),looking at it on Model Roundup now. I picked that lay away up today. The kits relevant to this CBP are a '10 GT,'05 GT,and the GT500 and GT500KR kits. There was a Bullitt in there,but thinking I had one at home already (I have the GTH kit already,thought I had the Bullitt too),I swapped it out for a Mobious Hudson,LOL! Whoops! :blink::lol: Except for the '10 GT,which wasn't out before the hose fire,I had at least one of each of these,sigh.

I'll be trying to order these two I'm missing hopefully soon. Any word on when\if they'll do an updated '11 with the Coyote 5.0L,or a Boss 302? Those would be killer (and presumably simple for Revell) updates,IMHO! I'd still love to see a modified '99 SVT into a GT or (even better) MACH I too though,LOL!

Since I've been enjoying a really good spell with my ailments,it's really hard to get me off the bicycles (knowing a bad spell puts me off them ompletely and is always a "could happen any time"),so I haven't been working on anything lately,but with several new kits,I'm feeling anxious again,LOL! :P

Hi Stephen! I hope that you are riding high with good health for a good while! I get my Pegasus tires from Scale Dreams.

No word on the Coyote variant yet; don't think they will until they have exhausted the other options. With that said, look to December/January for the 2010 GT Convertible snap kit.I know, Groan...a snapper...big deal. Well, Revell has cast the hood for the snapper separately (read: able to swap the full-detail underpinnings/drivetrain into the snap kit) and it is along the same lines as the rest of the '10 kits.

Also, Mike is right; scaledreams (Rick) is a great source for Pegasus wheels, and he is a good guy to deal with as well.

Good to hear you got a 'Stang stash built back up Stephen, and I am sure we will be seeing them soon!

A little more progress. I replaced the shifter with a better one.

And, the interior is done.

I started working on the air filter and airtube. I still need to make an open airbox.

Mike and Bradley: Thanks for the tip on the tires :) The kit supplied ones...kinda suck,LOL! Good news on the ragtop kit coming too! I'll have to score another '10 GT donor for a full detail ragtop,and a second ragtop for Nick (my 9 year old) to snap fast (pun intended..."Snap-Fast_plus",get it? :rolleyes::P ).

I sold a Kicker "isoberic subwoofer enclosure" (if I didn't mispell) I had taken in trade for that Blazer's cowl induction hood I had kept after church this morning,so I ran to Hobbytown this afternoon,picked up the '10 GT500 (1:25,not the big one,which I doubt I'll build) and '08 Bullitt,so (until December\January anyways) I once again have a complete set o the '06 and up. I'm knee deep in the detailing a snapper replica of a formerly owned 1:1 car for a (timed) CBP elsewhere (and I'm actually working on it,LOL),but that one shouldn't take too long,I can't wait to get on one of these. The only one of the lot I've previously built was the '06 GT,and that was back in '06...been to long (and since I've lost steam in the pair of SN95's on the bench for now...).

Mike,liking that shifter much better :D

So here's what I scored in the last 48 hours (already had the '06-?- Shelby GTH)...
