    Primer is laid, starting work on the chassis now. My mockup is starting to appear like a car, can't wait to get some color on this heap! -Art

    Foxbody Fever! 88GT and 90LX kit-bash build

    Holy Smokes! Finally able to get back to it... I am starting to test fit and pre-assemble the rest of the car for primer. Hope to get something shot by this time tomorrow. I cut the front clip off like how the 1:1 is actually built, removed all the casting lines and added some body lines that...

    No Room to Work!

    I definitely feel you there. That is a picture of what should be a dining space! LOL Just glad my wife is supportive of my madness

    Foxbody Fever! 88GT and 90LX kit-bash build

    It came with a small (on demand) pump. I just picked up an older 1hp electric compressor with good sized tank. I need to find the right couplings to make everything compatible. The Paasche seems to have it's own size apart from the no name AB I bought to have a gravity feed...

    No Room to Work!

    I have been away helping family and I have acquired quite a few things to bring it all to the next level. Only problem is I live in a one bedroom and I have outgrown my space! I need to outgrow this monthly income, so I can afford a garage and a couple extra rooms! On the bright side I have...

    Foxbody Fever! 88GT and 90LX kit-bash build

    Took a little break from building, realizing I built 3 kits in the last couple months. I want to slow down and really pour into the details on this current project. I acquired a decent little airbrush setup over the weekend and I'm stoked as it will be my first time actually using an airbrush. I...

    Foxbody Fever! 88GT and 90LX kit-bash build

    Thanks! I'm going to do my best to create the worst 5.0 I can think of, this shib is in my blood. I was born to dirt people, so the lowest rungs have been traveled heavily in my time. Hell, I was brought home from the hospital in an 83 GT missing second gear!

    Foxbody Fever! 88GT and 90LX kit-bash build

    Started into the 88 GT today. Right away, I remember liking a Monogram or Revell Kit much more than others. AMT kits have such fine lines and delicate parts, but getting a proper fit is impossible. I'm relying heavily on contour putty to hide some of the kit lines and hopefully create a...

    AMT/ERTL 1/72 Eagle Transporter WIP.

    Truly amazing work. I envy your ability to work with such detail at this scale!

    Foxbody Fever! 88GT and 90LX kit-bash build

    Got it apart but not without some casualty. Took advantage of the opportunity to photograph the interior. My shot nerves really come out in the details. can't hold my hand steady to save my life. lol. I buttoned it up after this. lights, glass and all that. I posted the final product on a...

    90LX Finished Build

    I have a build post I'll be continuing, I have another kit on that thread to complete, but I figured I would show off the final 90LX here. This was a stripped down drag car kit with the option to partially return it to a full factory street car. I kept the suspension goodies and modified them...

    Foxbody Fever! 88GT and 90LX kit-bash build

    Thanks. Perhaps if i had more skill. Patience is not my forte, but that's why I keep at this. Discipline LOL I'll take my chances with my psyche following the recommended assembly from Revell....

    Foxbody Fever! 88GT and 90LX kit-bash build

    Reworked the wheels and realized the tail light chrome has to be installed from the inside...:oops: I'm not much for following instruction and that bit me once again, so I'll have to fight this thing apart one more time and hopefully not destroy it. Here it is before I throw it in the trash or...

    Foxbody Fever! 88GT and 90LX kit-bash build

    These were the slickest 5.0's out there. The notchback w/police package is the ultimate fox to obtain. Aside from the all the Fury's and Monaco's this is my favorite vehicle to be commissioned by the government for service.

    Foxbody Fever! 88GT and 90LX kit-bash build

    After a ton of tedious tasks, delicately completed, got the engine bay and interior completed. I just threw a couple wires through the firewall, If I had more colors I would do more, this is the first time i've done anything custom to a kit outside of simple kit bashing, so i'm going to quit...

    Foxbody Fever! 88GT and 90LX kit-bash build

    I remember distinctly now, the rage inducing frustration when more falls off than you are putting on. Brushed on some strategic glue, couple C47's and a promise to myself not to touch the F%[email protected]#&# thing until tomorrow. Plugged, wired, and I ran a heater hose back to the firewall, that I think...

    Got everything in to keep me busy for the foreseeable future! Shameless/Free plug for Model Roundup, super stoked to have found this internet gem. I'll be happy to lose myself in the next couple projects. Got the LX plugged and wired. I'm using the factory rubber boot covered Distributor to...

    Foxbody Fever! 88GT and 90LX kit-bash build

    Although it's the least Mustang looking Mustang, it did well in sales, and the 80's were terrible for American Auto Manufacturers. A front wheel drive prelude may handle better than a fox, but nothing beats a V8 rev, dropping the clutch, cranking the wheel and hanging on for a rowdy ride. I...

    Foxbody Fever! 88GT and 90LX kit-bash build

    I have poor luck with the rattle cans. Had to wet sand down terrible orange peel and shoot another coat. I keep getting a frothy foam viscosity that's driving me crazy. I'm gonna live with what I got, because any more work on the body, I'm afraid i'll lose body lines and contours. The...
