1970 Mustang Boss 302

Recommended Posts

Another old build that I want to show off.

This is the Monogram Boss 302 built using a series of articles by Tim Boyd as my guide. I pretty much followed it verse by verse, adding details as outlined by Tim. Not only did his suggestions add a ton of detail to the model, it also came out as one of my best paint jobs ever. I used a can Tamiya yellow and detailed the interior with white seats and black dash/carpet. Tires are from an MRC Muscle car set. I used decals from The Last Detail in the engine compartment and interior. Seeing this one again makes me want to get to the re-release and do a Mach 1 this time.

So without further ado...

Awesome build of some awesome subject matter. You've got one of the best builds of this venerable kit that I have seen in a long time!

Very nicely done. I love seeing all the details you've added, painted and otherwise (door locks!) When you combine those with a clean build and a fantastic paint job, you end up with a spectacular build like this.

I agree with what has already been said , very nice Boss 302 ! Lots of details that are really hard to see , so I enlarged your engine shot and adjusted the exposure so I could see everything . Wow ! Lots of goodies in there like a little glass diode for a fuel filter , and one of those dreaded Anti - Backfire Valves in the line from the PCV valve ! Way too much detail to list everything you've done . And the best looking vacuum advance diaphragm I've ever seen , how did you do that ?

Tom, awesome build, looks great! Outstanding detail, the chassis paint detail looks spot on, and the engine compartment is outta sight!

Looks exactly like my friend Gary's Boss! He bought it brand new in '70, traded in an SS396 Chevelle. Can you imagine living in a time when you could do that??? :D
