The spru shots.

Actually Pretty good detail with this one.










And the decals.



And to be honest I have begun. I have begun the painting of the body.

Re: 1966 Ford Mustang 350GT R

The first two layers of the painting.

First was a layer of Testors Gloss Black. Once dry I sanded it out a bit with 1000 grit to get some of the blemishes to minimize. I then sprayed Alclad Polished Aluminium to give it a "metal" base layer.




After this I went with the first color. Model Master Enamel Artict Blue Metal Flake. I will allow this to dry then I plan to move into sanding out some of the blemishes that have occured. I will then hit it with another coat. I plan to build up the paint and then on to clear.

Re: 1966 Ford Mustang 350GT R

The decals went on ok.

All things considered though if faced with the same situation I would paint them on. As it is they are on and have been glossed. I was planning to polishing this up but I believe I will just leave it. It has a decent shine to it and looks pretty good.

So here are pics of the decals.












With those now done I can begin to work on the actual stuff in the instructions.

Many many thanks.

I did have some issue with the decals. Some appeared to be short for the area they were to be applied. Some were much too long. No worries though. Got through it.

A small update.


The under parts and the interior tub get some paint and a bit of drybrushing. Semi Gloss Black, Model Master Metalizer Stainless Steel, and then Testors Flat Aluminium.





Next will be detail work on the under parts and such.

Re: 1966 Ford Mustang 350GT R

Well after a bit of a lengthy break I am back.

Work continues on the Mustang with engine work, chassis work, and work on the interior. Trying my hand at wiring the engine again. Hope it works better than the last time.







Next up is to finish with the plug wires and assorted wires and cables.

Til the next time.

We have a rolling chassis. The engine is now installed as well.






Next is to mate the body to the chassis.

And she is finished.

All told it turned out much better than the first time I did up this kit.










Next up will be a couple of things that will test me to no end.
