They are back with this. 2015 Mustang, Ill shelby it up the best i can. Itll be a quick build. Remember blurry pics on workbench smooth pictures for underglass.

Starting off with a reminder of what the blue crew contains at the moment.

Thanks Y'all. Got her primed so now to figure some stuff out. Has a spoiler from 2004-14 GT. I found from one of my other shelby kits. Picture is sideways but youll understand.... I Hope... Also side windows turned into body panels. The 5.0 Badges were sanded off and wheels painted a dark metalic silver almost black.

Thanks again guys, freshly painted body now to wait for the paint to dry... In case anyone has ever wondered the color i use on my collection its sapphire blue metallic rattle can from testors cap code 1639 and every single car has this paint. The only thing is no matter where i go on my property i can never find a dust free spot to paint..... securedownload_zps6ebeb2fb.jpg

I might be wrong, but there seems to be a theme to your builds. Nice collection.

A theme? Naw just an obsession with shelbies and the color blue.

Great color man! Cool collection aswell.

Ok guys Im off work today and tomorrow so this and the mini trucks will get some attention. Starting off a few pictures under natural sunlight. (wait sunlight in ohio? whats happening there?) This is the basic look minus the stripes, headlights and final details. I think all the motor oil im around has blurred my phone's camera permanently.

Took a break from figuring out my headlights and designed some stripes for the bad boy. Seeing how i didnt have any racing stripes handy. So i made some on the computer using a blue line in paint for the middle and skinnier ones for the edges i then printed the stripes onto white decal paper. Got some trimming to do with them when they cure to the body.

Still don't get why they didn't include mirrors with the kit, but great job! Headlights are also a lot better than what they give you!
