Hi,New Here,71-73Blue Max Mustang Question

7 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Hello all,,New here,but have been lurking and enjoying the builds here.

I have the Round 2 MPC version of the Blue Max funny car and I am curious as to what color to use for the body,,Can`t find it anywhere on the box,nor the instructions.

I suppose this was done in the day of colored plastic/molded in color days,,but I`d like to get the correct color if possible as mine is molded in white.

Thanks

Phil

I would say that the Tamiya TS-23 Light Blue would be close enough.

I built the 1/16 Blue Max and I used House of Colors True Blue. Here is a picture

Thanks for the replys

The Kit I have shows light blue with dark blue decals,I do like the Dark blue metallic one that you guys posted.

I went with a testors Can light blue,,but haven`t decaled yet so i`ll check the Tamiya color first before proceeding

Thanks again for the Help

Phil

I'm not that familar with any the blue max cars , but I've seen numerous pictures of the 71-73 bodystyle car in both a light blue ( almost like a non metallic powder blue) . and then some in a darker metallic blue similar to say testors true blue metallic.

As far is which one is which season ? No idea

if so I used a model master blue (maybe olds engine blue ,cant remember sorry it was 10 years or more ago) with a LOT of white added.

The blue I used was quite metallacy but the white toned it down heaps.
