1969 Ford Mustang Boss 302
Posted by mrmike on Saturday, June 8, 2019 10:55 AM

My new project for the Classic Plastic Model Club Club Challenge.  Box stock with any finish I want.  The '69 Mustang Boss 302! 

My paint will be Tamiya Pearl Blue.

I'll definitely be watching your progress on this one. It's one of my all-time favorite muscle cars. It's surprising to me that there haven't been many posted builds of this finished & completed kit.

On the bench:  '63 Studebaker Avanti.

I'm surprised that there hasn't been more builds of this kit!  They all say they want or have one, then why not build it and display it here?

Tonight I decided to get the engine partially assembled in prep for paint.  I displayed the intake manifold on top of the engine without any glue.  It will be painted aluminium.

The 302 CID engine with the sprue containing the other parts that'll need painting on the sprue.

Looks really good, Uncle Billiam!

I have done a little work on the Boss 302.  The engine is mostly assembled and partially painted.  I added some Detailer to the carb to bring out some detail.  I'll paint the transmission before it is installed in the chassis.

You gonna add some ignition wiring to it? That engine it's easily done and it'll really bring it to life.

I had the paintbooth fired up again this afternoon and I decided to paint the chassis and the bottom of the interior tub with some Bright Touch Red Oxide Primer.  I'll give this a chance to dry overnight and paint the edges with Tamiya TS-89 Pearl Blue.

I painted the interior bucket this morning with Rust-Oleum Painters Choice Semi Gloss Black.  

The chassis and interior floor have been painted.

Black can be a pesky color to cover a bright coloerd plastic.  I usually paint light colored plastic with flat black and then either gloss or semi-gloss black.

It's not black, but Tamiya TS-89 Pearl Blue.  On red oxide primer, it came out really dark.

Well, things have changed over the last couple of months.  The Boss 302 is no longer for the Classic Plastic Model Club Exhibition "Club Challenge".  I will wire the engine like I wanted to do in the first place and add details that were not allowed in the class.

What's this?  Why it's the distributor to the Boss 302.  I drilled a little too far and the shaft fell out.  I replaced it with a piece of round styrene.

I drilled out the cylinder heads for plugs wires.

More Boss 302 to come...

Thanks,
