1970 Boss 302 Mustang
Posted by ModelTexan on Sunday, January 06, 2019 8:09 PM

I just completed Revell's 1/24 Boss Mustang.  I made a lot of additional decals and some minor 3D printed parts.  I think it came out OK.

I have a friend with some Ford color chips from 1970 and I borrowed them to find a match. Believe it or not that is thinned craft paint that matched the color chip extremely well. It is FolkArt Metallic Peridot bought at Hobby Lobby with a Future (now Revive-it) clearcoat.

Turned out OK?  Yeah right!!

This thing is fantastic.  Super job man.  Take a bow!  Really great work.

I am interested in the pieces you printed, and more about the process.

Sounds intriguing.

Best regards

Just keep picking away at it...

The most notable printed parts are the pedals. The kit has pedals molded to the floor so I removed those and made new ones to hang from the back of the dash. I also made the distributor, coil, accessory brackets and the governor box on the fender. The kit distributor was a little too fragile for the wiring so I made a stronger one. I use FreeCAD (a free and open source drawing program) to design the parts. I then use Cura to turn the "stl" file from FreeCAD into a file the printer uses to make the part (referred to as "g-code" by the automated machinery world). The printer then reads the file from Cura to print the part. My printer is an "A8" which is a legal clone of a machine called "Prusa". It is capable of printing an 8 inch cube volume.

Thanks for the reply MT1.  That is great info.  I am intrigued by the whole 3d printing thing.  It seems that you can make stuff much easier than having to have a mini lathe or mill.  I am sure there are pros and cons to both, but thanks for your response.  Every bit helps me in my research phase.  

Best regards

Your Mustang looks great, Michael! Cool Thumbs Up

If you cannot have a good time, what kinda time can you have? JR

Next on the bench:  Another 1970 Hemi 'Cuda, 1958 Chevy Impala, 1987 Buick GNX, 1950 Chevy Pick-up, Indy Reynard, 1965 Corvette, probably not in this order.
