Ford Mustang GT500 - 8 year old daughter!

Hi all. My 8 year old girl completed this Revell Mustang. It is her first model (I helped just a little). The only pink paint I had was some ancient brush-on Pactra paint. It was brushed on, sanded, and clear coated! She did a great job with the decals too. She wants to get another model, which is cool.

I think the kid did a fine job. And the pink is very girly-girl. I'm sure that your daughter had a good experience. Good, clean fun.

Great build; and the best part; a rock-solid connection and memory with your daughter! I raised 2 of them; now they're both grown up and have started their own lives, but I still have some memories like these! Good job, dad!

Thanks guys! She has an artsy side, but I don't think she'll have quite the car bug that I do! She's really enjoying reading the feedback!

She really did a nice clean job of building this mustang.

Great to see kids building and even better to see the big smile.

Cute little girl! Paint came out fantastic! My daughter just turned sixteen, and never took an interest in cars like us. (of course she's ready for a 1:1 now) You are a lucky Dad.

Great job on the model! WARNING - In eight more years she'll want you to buy her a real one like that! :lol:

The paint looks great - can't believe it's brushed on! Nice work, both of you!

VERY nice job smoothing out that paint. Looks like it could be a Mary Kay promotional car!

She's a beautiful young lady, and did a very nice job with that. Keep her building something- cars, planes, ships, figures. Kids don't work enough with their hands anymore and have lost the art of appreciating delayed gratification. Keep her at it, and she can point the way to her school mates and friends that instant satisfaction isn't all that great.

As Rob said, that winning smile says it all. No faking that.

This is probably one of the best posts on this entire forum. It's a rare thing these days to see a parent that actually takes the time to do something like this with their child. Let alone a child of the opposite sex. Kids that get this kind of attention are the ones a whole lot less likely to go into a school and start shooting. My hat is off to you.

That's is a great job! Like other said before it's great to see a young lady take to the hobby, and great to see a parent not setting their kid in front of a tv. Keep up the awesome work, both of you, look forward to seeing her next project!!
