sweet build!....Looks like something that would have cruised in my high school parking lot.

I have a couple of these in my stash.......one is painted up and ready to be built except........I cannot find any accurate decals for a '71 - '73 Mustang Mach 1.......and prefer them in silver or white.

Sweet ride.  My only suggestion it to paint the inside of the scoop flat black.  With ram air that area woould have a flapper in it.  W/O ram air it had a black plastic honeycomb plate to keep water out.  Did you use the incorrect kit engine (351W or 428) or transplant something else?

It's considered cheating to take a picture of your 1:1 car in your garage and call it a model Wink

The white letters are decals and you can get them from Fireball Modelworks. There decals are the BEST I have ever used and they have a huge selection.

Amazing what a huge difference a few minor changes can make. The box art is pretty blah(imo), your color choice, lake pipes, and cragars are the perfect fit for this. Nice vision! It doesn't hurt that your dio is A+ work too.

Now that's the way a garage SHOULD look! With tools and equipment laying randomly around the car - like he was so excited he finished his car, he didn't have time to clean it up before taking pictures of it.

Great job with the car and it's home.

I have a couple of these kits and am totally amazed at what you have done with it.  From what I can tell they are not worth scrapping, let alone building.  However, your build has shown me there is hope.  That is one beautiful Mustang!!

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!

Big Gary let me know,  I have some vintage Mustangs and those parts are trashed. 

 Thanks. Oldcarfan27
