Found the kit to be a bit average so built it curbside in my favourite style.

Ya know that's pretty cool.  Quite different and the black looks nice on that "Mustang with Lock Washers".

That year was so interesting that Mercury went with that Buick Puke Line on the bodyside.  And on the Eliminator performance version they played it down with the stripes.  I really liked that body style, thanks for sharing and doing a build that I personally wouldn't even think of, and pulling it off real well.  

And it is so much cheaper than a full scale real car!!!!

Probably the coolest looking Cougar I've seen.  Cheers.

I must say, that looks much better than I thought it would. The black paint looks great. Very cool!

Super clean build. I like the blackwashed grill.

That's a very cool take on a Cougar. I'm building the AMT CJ428 version now, but it will be stock.

Being a die-hard Cougar fan, I have built loads of these big cats (XR7, Eliminator, CJ428...) & I can tell you that yours is fantastic & so unusual in its style. Congrats !

My next one may be the Super Cat, which shouldn't be too complicated since it is relatively close to a factory stock car.
