Went with the Ferrari road race theme and yellow head light covers. Also notice the grille emblem, it's the Ford Mustang logo with the Cavillino over top for the "American Cavillino" theme..

What a perfect combination of parts. The whole thing just flows. I also love the contrast of the yellow interior with the red.

Thanks everyone, one of my better builds so far. Thought of doing it a couple years ago and it kept coming to mind and our clubs NNL theme this year was 50 years of Mustang and I thought now's the time to do it!!!!

And Danno, I'm not watching what that Cavillino is doing!!!!!

Cool 'Stang. Nice work. I own a 2006 1:1 Mustang GT with several aftermarket parts including the "Eleanor" grille. I want to build a model of it but can't find the extra parts. Where do you find the AF/X Resins Mustang parts?

When I read about this project I thought it would be impossible or turn out like cr*p. Was I proven wrong or was I? This "thing" looks stunning. Everything fits so well. Perfectly executed.

Yeah very nicely done mating the Mustang body with the Modena running gear and interior, it's not that easy to do, I know!

I also built a mid engine Mustang, but I had to scratch most everything. I did use a Mustang engine and interior though.

Ciao!!!
