MPC '79 Mustang

I thought I posted this, but apparently I have not. Built it in like late March or early April.

79 Mustang pace car kit built as a turbo 4cyl t-top non pace car edition. Unfortunately MPC changed the grille from the original issue of the Cobra to the Pace car edition, so the horizontal slat grille is not correct for a base model. But it is what it is. 

Used Tamiya yellow for the paint. Someone sent me some houndstooth decals some time ago, that I've used for the seats. Probably not correct for a foxbody, maybe more for a Mustang II. 

No plug wires or anything like that. Just wanted a quick build.
