1971 Mustang Mach 1 (007)


Recommended Posts

Now that Revell has made the MPC/AMT ‘71-‘73 Mustang kits obsolete… here’s my AMT 007 Mustang Mach 1! I left most of the kit’s inaccuracies intact, and built it as-is out of box. I did fill in the hood vent though. Body and interior are painted Rustoleum Gloss Apple Red over Tamiya pink primer with Krylon semigloss Black for the lower body. Cleared with Pledge floor gloss. 
I mistakenly glued the firewall to the interior tub and didn’t notice until final assembly. It should be glued into the body shell, further forward. I had to trim the firewall sides down to get the glued chassis and tub into the body. I managed to make the grossly inaccurate engine bay even worse!

Looks fantastic mate. I saw Diamonds Are Forever on the big screen as a kid when it was released. Thought it was the most awesome thing I'd ever seen! I still get up YT clips to re-watch that chase in the carpark and streets of Las Vegas.
