1992 Ford Mustang GT Convertible


Recommended Posts

Here is my Monogram “1992” Mustang GT Convertible. I built this kit as a color scheme tribute to my 1:1 Mustang, a 1993 2.3 LX. My original idea was to kit bash this GT with an SVO or ‘83 GLX to create an LX ‘vert but all three of these kits are expensive on eBay today and I just don’t have the skills or stomach yet to cut up two $40-$60+ kits ?. So I settled for my car, but as a GT! I used Swarovski Crystals (meant for ladies’ custom nails) from Hobby Lobby to simulate the headlight and turn signal bulbs. And I used the actual belt line stripe tape left over from my 1:1, cut down for the 1:24 belt line stripe. To do those blasted cheese grater taillights, I painted them all white first, then used silver and red gel pens to color the lens sections. It’s a little sloppy but looks good enough. I messed up the clear coat on the hood too so I’ll have to repaint it at some point but it’s not that noticeable in these iPhone pictures ?. You’ll notice that the parade boot is grey when it probably should be white or blue. But my 1:1 came with a grey boot so I painted this to match! The previous owner also shaved the trunk luggage rack so I did the same here. I’m very pleased with this one and can’t wait for a nice day to photograph both cars together!

Nice looking Mustang! Revell made a '90 LX coupe that you could convert over to a convertible. Cutting the roof off of that kit would actually be an improvement. It also has the ten hole wheels. It was done as stock/police and later a drag version. Not sure if the drag version has the stock parts.

Thanks! I do have the Revell ‘90 lx coupe drag kit and it does have the stock parts. But I want to build that one as a stock coupe so it was spared from the chopping block! And my girlfriend gets on to me for buying too many kits as it is, she would lose it if I started buying duplicates ?

Check her shoes and makeup. she may have duplicates.

Nice, blue interiors was common back in the 80s and 90s, but you rarely see model cars built with them, maybe since they seems to be out of fashion nowadays. But in this case it looks great, and so does the blue top.

Looks great, and yes, my real white '94 has the chassis in that light grey primer you used.  This inspires me to get busy and build the AMT kit with a window sticker to replicate how mine looked when it came in after the order.

Yes, there are common themes between the sexes. As much as my wife hates plastic, she loves her shoes.
