1967 "Rustang": Realism in Scale
Posted by Hilandr451 on Saturday, February 1, 2020 10:15 AM

'67 Rustang


Well, this all started bac in '98 when I botched a paint job on a model car I was painting for the neighbor kid.



I had to run down and buy another kit to replace the body I had just frosted. In the end it all worked out - I was able to give him a decent painted body for his model. Now I was stuck with a complete car kit with a bad paint job. 

I don't build cars, I don't like Fords and I hate Mustangs (unless they have wings and a propeller) - no offense Ford Mustang guys!

I decided to build it with the same attention to detail as my 1:48 WWII Aircraft. The long look plan being a diorama of some person's project car and their garage shop. I have the engine, transmission, heads, intake, headers, rims & tires Oh yeah and the hood & front bumper.

Nicely done!  Having owned a few - and currently own a 2013 Boss 302 LS, I'd say that's spot on.  Especially the engine bay.

As others have said, well done.  I can almost picture it sitting on cinderblocks with a tree growing up through the engine compartment.

Great job on the Mustang.  I've been thinking of trying one myself like this.
