67 Mustang (Tokyo Drift)
Posted by aussiemuscle308 on Tuesday, March 10, 2015 6:09 PM

This model has been kicking my azz for the best part of two years. a couple of repaints and rebuilds, i'm calling it finished. The rims are off a viper, but i haven't painted them yet, although they are the right size, they are five spoke, not six spoke that it needs. everything else is from the box, including the nissan engine. I painted the stripes, rather than using the decals.

Nice build aussiemuscle, I have the same Mustang almost finished, only waiting for the wheels . I´m trying to find one that looks like the real.

Very nicely done!  Are the side/roof pillar scoops in the box, or did you get those from the Shelby Mustang kit?

I have the same Mustang almost finished, only waiting for the wheels . I´m trying to find one that looks like the real.

I've narrowed it down to either a set of XS Tuning RS Touring, or Fujimi Yokohama Model7 wheels.  Both need to be sleeved to truly match the movie car, but they look pretty close otherwise.

Thanks for the info about the rims. although neither have the edge on the side of the spoke, the XS Tuning RS Touring are closest. hopefully i can find them.

The roof scoops are in the kit, i'm not sure of the doors, but i assume so (*i've lost one) It's the same as the AMT mustang GT kit, with incorrect rims.

I was going to try them inside a set of Pegasus 1195 sleeves ...I think that may provide the correct wheel lip and it won't increase the wheel size too much (plus, it will make painting them really easy).  I'll try to check that out tonight, and post a picture of the result.

Turns out the Pegasus 1195s are just a hair too small for either the Fujimi or XS Tuning wheels.  So I tried their 2399s, which are way too big.  But I wasn't quite ready to give up on the idea, so I went digging through the parts box and I think I found a winner.  This is one of the alternate wheels from Revell's current Camaro with the center spider cut out:

yeah, not bad. going to cast them? this would be the sort of thing that would be best as a 3D printable item (small, easy to print).

compared to what AMT added to the kit (model by charger01 - hope you don't mind me using your pic, it's the best pic i could find of it box stock).

I agree, but I think these are a bit above both my current casting and 3D drawing abilities. All the parts are available fairly cheap, though - the Model 7s are still in stock at HLJ for $5 and change, and I found a set of Camaro wheels with tires for $3 on eBay.

Good one, Gustavo, those look even better!  What will you do for the deeper rear wheels?

No problem Aussie!

Here what I made with mine. Wheels came from a diecast car, I only modified the rear ones

Aussie man don't let this little hick-up on the rims kick your butt, I'm definitely want to see this clean build finished. Ans the stripes look way better painted on then decals!! Keep up the good work...

i printed my own 3d rims that are a lot closer to the real rims

So far i've just sprayed on some alcad silver to coat them, later i'll add the gun metal to the spokes to finish them correctly.

That "Stang" is lookin' real good, and yes I liked the Tokyo Drift movie even though a number of F & F fans didn't care much for it.
