Saw this one in these exact colors 2 years ago on a car show, my ultimate dream ride :-) driving a red convertible now, but nothing as cool as this one. Monogram kit bought and got me on this forum, straight out of box build

I never went for the early Mustangs. They were called sports cars but weren't worth a lick in cornering. The early racers, sold as race-ready GT-350s (?) in white with the stripes and a small functional hood scoop at least were better than the showroom ones. Your interior work around the dash looks very good. Nice clean job!

Looks GREAT Mrs. M    I've been wondering if you was working on your Mustang, you proved you can build and very good to, Keep it going with your stalled builds

Looks good to me. Well done. Why don't you do a WIP on your next one. I'm sure the guys would love to see one.

Next one is a airfix 1/32 ford fiesta rally car that I once started but never finished wrote:

Funny you should say that. I have one sitting on the bench waiting to be finished too!!! LOL

I agree with everyone else, this looks great, although i hope you don't mind me asking, but why is it called a 64 1/2...

The Mustang was introduced halfway through the production year, so the very irst year of the Mustang is known as a 64 and a half.

Do I see a theme here...? Another nice Mustang.

There are no rules to building models Marijke, it's about enjoying the build.
If you are not keen on the Fiesta Rally car (another Ford I see)
leave it on the shelf and go and buy another that you like,
...or twist someone else's arm to buy you one !!
