Shelby Mustang.

Post by baZOOKa on Tue 23 Apr 2013, 6:55 pm

This is the model I wanted to build for the Shelby GAS but some numb nuts put a carton of beer on a chair which was not balanced and the carton took a tumble onto a couple of kits I had on the floor and .....well.... I think you can work the rest out. I have got another Shelby kit and here is where its at. Im waiting on bits for the T-Bird so I thought I would get this going.

Going to be orange with black interior. It comes 'Molded in color' which is the most aweful green I have ever seen. Wheels are from ...errrm ...another kit not sure which one. I have added flares to the back guards and spent a good hour smoothing the body with all the mold marks.

Anyway just a couple of shots. More to come as I get more done. Oh and in case anyone was wondering ....NO beer was hurt in the fall !!

FEW!! Thank goodness no beer was hurt!! Pity about the model though mate, next time drink faster, then the carton won't be soo heavy. That's a nice orange too mate, will be watching your progress closely. Shocked

I got a bottle of Pledge ( called Pledge One Go ) some time ago from a supermarket. Also try stores which sell timber flooring as it is a floor polish - hope you find some.

Engine is done. Was going to wire it up but decided not too (Because I could not find the wire I had to do it with).


Still needs a touch up in spots and I have painted the carbs a copper color and the air cleaner is still to go on.


Not happy with the front and rear roll pans so I am going to fill and file them smooth.




Interior is done .....




and the body is still on the bench getting my 2nd ever (And possibly LAST ) BMF job...what god awefull stuff to use.

Anyways just so ya's know's im still at it !!!
