This is a subject that I have yet to see in this sub-forum, and figured I would take a stab at it. I'm using the old Doyusha 1971 Mustang kit, with parts from the Revell 2010 GT500 kit, along with resin wheels from ebay and R/C car tires.

Quite a bit of the GT500 kit will be used, namely the chassis/drivetrain, and some of the interior. The suspension will be modified parts from the Doyusha kit, and the body will be all Doyusha with a few GT500 parts added.

I'm working on the engine now, and I'll post some pics a little later of where its at.

Here's where I'm at with the engine.

I decided not to go with the usual Ford blue engine, nor did I want to go with a monochromatic or custom color. Instead, I did a search into vintage Mustang engine colors, and I found the late 60's 289 engines were black with gold valve covers and air cleaner. I did something similar, using a Ford gold paint, with a black block and heads, aluminum oil pan and transmission, gold cam covers and intake manifold, and chrome supercharger. I think it's different, vintage yet modern, and the gold will complement the blue that I plan on painting the car.
