Revell 1970 Boss 429 Mustang


Recommended Posts

          This one is done in Model Master Citrus Yellow Metallic over Testors One Coat Lacquer Diamond Dust, and cleared with Model Master Gloss Clear.  Some of the extras include ignition wires, vacuum advance line, valve stems and white letters on the tires from Fireball Modelworks. I initially wasn't going to put the spoiler or louvers on, but went ahead and put them on "temporarily" with some clear elmer's glue.

          The interior is a custom mixture and is done in craft paints. I printed my own gauges for the dash, but my printer wasn't up to the challenge for doing the black background and they came out with a green tint. At least they go with the green theme of the car, LOL. They actually look like they are illuminated at night, so I'll go with that.

          The chassis was sprayed with craft paint also, as was the "overspray", although I don't think I put enough on. Even though the interior lacks detail and I would like to see some more suspension parts, I really like this kit. I did three of them in my younger days that I don't still have, and will probably add more to my current collection. Thanks for looking!

Turned out super nice, I do like the lighted gauges look and your wheel detail is very clean.

Very nice work.  The wood grain looks very realistic and you might be on to something with the guages.

Really sharp build, Those gauges! I thought it'd be a slight green time, but they look like radar scanners - quite cool!
