1985 Mustang SVO

This one is a little bit different. Instead of the ugly SVO nose I'm going with a nose-swap from the '93 Cobra. Wheel treatment will be 1991 "Pony" wheels. The hood is a custom piece from the '90's convertible kit, with hood louvers cut from the 1990 Grand Prix Turbo hood and glued into holes I carved in the 'Stang hood. The engine is the supercharged 4.6L from the Mustang Mach III kit. The Paint is Apple Red with future for clear.

I had a WIP going, and while the forum was out, I finished the car. In hinsight updating the hood, nose and tires the car lost most of what made it an SVO really.

Thanks and Possibly, Probably, but with the issues I had in selecting an engine and dressing it (this was motor plan D) I just kinda got it done.

Hi Lawrence,

My cement melted the plastic a bit and with the recessed detail I didn't want to lose any more definition. It was the Streetburner SVO I do believe. Released a few years back.

Thats bad Lawrence - i hate that kind of "glueaccidents" when finishing the model. I am a expert to drop mirrors or wipers...sure on the fresh paint.

Silly question :unsure: : what means SVO? i read it often in conjunction with this generation of Mustang

A little more sanding and finishing would have cleaned up that front end faux pas nicely. Unfortunately, it distracts from an otherwise nice build.
