1969 Mustang
Posted by KWT on Sunday, August 2, 2020 2:28 PM

When the Revell 69 Boss 302 came out, I'll admit, I only wanted the car to see the difference in the front clips. I still had a 69 from the mustang 3 pack I bought 20+ years ago to compare it too. Unfortunately when it arrived, I tossed the new kit in the stash with the rest and forgot all about it.. Mustangs aren't my thing...

So yesterday, I decided to watch a movie that I had never seen before... John Wick... hoowee... what a good flick. And in this movie was a mustang that really jumped out at me. So I raced into the dungeon and searched the stash. Found the Boss and have finally found the Mach 1. And so begins my next Hollywood star car.

This is where we sit so far... We have the old mustang kit body. I've added the nose and hood from the Boss kit. And also a scoop from the Revell 68 Mustang kit.

I normally build GM models but I do like the '69-'70 Mustangs. I have several '70 Boss Mustang kits and they go together quite well. I have this one also but haven't built it yet. Are you going to fill the sink marks in the "C" pillars or place a Mach 1 emblem in the recess?

John Wick's Mustang has those emblems on it.

Odd that you mention that. I do like the body style of the 69 and 70, also.

Oh man, don't say that. My builds are generally so lackluster. I'm liable to have a finished product before I update again. I'm not good with WIPS... but I'm trying to remedy that... With that said, welcome aboard. Hope I don't disappoint.

Got the first coat of primer sprayed and the wet sanded. Then wouldn't you know it, I found a couple spot that I needed to clean up.

Here's where we stand so far.

With the grey primer, it's kinda starting to look the part.

More John Wick's "Hitman" Mustang soon...

Got some color sprayed this weekend. Gonna let this sit for a few days, then see about masking it off for the stripes.
