Ford Mustang GT4
Posted by Mr Mike on Friday, September 11, 2020 4:09 PM

This is my Tamiya Ford Mustang GT4.  It is painted with Tamiya TS-4 German Grey with a Tamiya TS-13 Gloss Clearcoat, wired, and decaled with kit decals and tire decals by Slixx.

Nice work.

Wish you'd have done a WIP on this one.

NICEEEEE!  I pre-ordered this kit.  How did it go together?  I was thinking doing this one next.  You did a great job.  The belly looks as good as the body my friend!

Thanks,

John

Nice work.

I did a WIP on the Scale Auto Forum.  I may start doing WIPs again on FSM.

This kit went together nicer than most other kits I have assembled.  You could almost shake the box and a completed model will fall out!

Nice!  I wonder if Tamiya will do the new mid engine Corvette next?

A friend of mine had lamented that the Big T had no love for American cars, but the Mustang and new GT40 indicates they have not forgotten us.

Nicely done!

I was looking at it as well...I'll check out that thread...

I am curious to know why you chose some of the undercarriage to remain white?

Thank you guys!

I don't know what goes through the mind of Tamiya.  It is possible that the Mustang GT4 was chosen because it is a racecar and not stock.  Tamiya does seem to make mostly racecars.  I have seen a couple of attempts at making the Mustang GT4 a stock looking car and they came out looking very nice!  

I will consider doing a WIP here on FSM with my next new build.

Very nicely done. Does anyone know of a kit of the 2017 Mustang GT350?

Nice build. Maybe you can get some of your fellow SAM members to post on this board. It needs a shot in the arm.

Thanks JohnnyK!  Asking is one thing.  Actually getting them to come here is another and I can't do it alone especially if my words fall on deaf ears...
