2010 Ford Mustang GT convertible
Posted by FenderMender on Saturday, May 23, 2020 3:43 PM

This 1/25 scale 2010 Ford Mustang GT convertible was built stock from Revell's Snap Tite kit which I found at a local thrift shop for only $1.51! The kit was missing the four metal screws to attach the chassis to the body, and the two metal axles for the wheels.  Everything else was included. Metal screws were found in my parts bin and axles with the proper diameter were made from clothes hanger wire.  With a little patience in painting and detailing (putting on those pesky stickers), the model came out better than expected.
In a few reviews of this kit, someone wrote that the snap-on parts don't stay put, ie.the side mirrors.  I thought mine were secure but after finishing photographing the car and getting ready to put it on the shelf, I saw the passenger side one was missing. Oh no. Luckily, it wasn't lost in the vast outdoors but quite near the shelf where it now rests. Phew.


Thanks for looking....

You did a great job on that Mustang convertible!  Snap kits are great when you get into a slump or just getting back into the hobby.  I kitbashed the snapper with the Mustang GT hardtop kit and to produce a full detail ragtop.  It came out pretty good if I say so myself.

That is one mighty fine looking Mustang.  Right now I could use a slump buster.

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

Nice looking Mustang.
