Boss 351

Saw one in the forum in this same color and knew I had to do another car in that color.  This probably some of my best work.

Looks great... Love the color!!!!

Ironically, the lower front suspension is backwards. The strut arms go forward. I wonder if the instructions are messed up since this is not the first build I have seen installed like this. Not to criticize, an FYI.

Yeah, it's what the instructions showed, and everything lined up right with the holes.  The instructions were even in color to show what the parts should look like when finished.

Nice work!  Is this the new Revell Boss 351 "New Tooling" kit?  I have one that I will be building into a Mach 1 to match my 1:1!  I also have the AMT Mach 1 kit to practice on before I start the Revell kit! 

So here’s the Revell kit I’m building and an AMT one I threw together side by side.  I even “cheated” on the AMT kit by making something resemble a 351C engine since the AMT kit comes with a 289 Windsor or a 428CJ engine both of which are not correct  for any 71-73 Mustang.  I think practicing on the AMT kit will make you appreciate the Revell kit and the efforts that went into making it very accurate.

That's the plan!  I'm going to practice on the AMT kit and then build the Revell kit to the extreme!  (Or as extreme as I can manage to get, LOL!)  I recognize your name...you are or used to be on 7173mustangs.com!

Yes I go by Vamach1 on the 7173mustangs.com website and Facebook.  As for extreme adding all the wiring and heater hoses and brake lines etc. would make the Revell build awesome.  Opening the doors and trunk would be take it to a whole other level.

I don't think I'm that guy, Rex...LOL!  I haven't even built a model since 9th grade (over 40 years ago!)  But I do want to give it my best!  I just bought a bunch of modeling gear including an air brush!  I am just about ready to start on the AMT kit!

Welcome back to car modeling and I recognized your name but did not make the connection at first.  I never really stopped and have managed to collect far more than I have built in the last 40 years.  When I started collecting diecast there were very few 71-73 Mustangs and the amount you can buy now is crazy.  Not a bad thing.
