'66 Mustang

Post by Nota on Wed 25 Jun 2014, 10:17 pm

I started out with the AMT '66 kit which was OK body wise but the chassis was poorly detailed to say the least, particularly as this was to be a club racer. It had the moulded in exhaust & no inner guards etc...
Found the AMT Mercury Cougar in my stash & it had a better detailed floor pan & other bits & it fitted pretty well to the Mustang body/interior bucket so I'm away
As you can see its a pretty viscious drop & will sport  a biggish set of flared guards - colour is still coming.

That's going to be "badass", will look pretty much like a sports sedan, should be cool.

Most of the bodywork done including the guards & almost ready for paint,. I just have to finish the motor now to work out where the trumpets will poke through the bonnet & cut an apprpriate hole.
Probably yellow & black or white & yellow or green & gold or .......
