Well its been 2 and a half years since I sold my 69 Mustang so I think its time to build a scale version. Next maybe I will build a scale version of my current 2006.

My car was like that really cute girl you knew in high school. Looked great on the outside. Very sexy and clean. Underneath, well she was not quite as put together... :)

Mine had a 302 so I am going to be using the 289 out of the AMT 67 kit as it looks way more like a 302 than the 428 that comes in the 69 kit.

I am going to take my time because there are many bits and pieces needed to make this like mine. Sometimes I tend to rush through some details and I'm trying not to do that on this build.

Here is where I am. Pretty far but I keep forget in to take pics alone the way. Snapped most of these today.

This is the trunk.  When I do trunks I usually carve the detail out of sheet styrene, and glue it tothe trunk underside.  It's painstaking, and sometimes the shapes are not exactly symmetrical.  I decided to try something different by creating the shapes.  Its a reverse of what I usually do.  

Well...It will look ok but I have cince decided I like the other way better.  Here is the Mustang.



This is the "other way".  I think I like this better.  This is from a 66 Mustang I did a couple years back.  Too late now haha.  I don't think one will be that much more noticeable on the built model, but no more experiments HAHA



Sure would like some opinions on this one.  Let me know what you think is more authentic looking.

Filled in where the roll bar goes.  That is left over from the Shelby kit.  Actually the whole interior is from the Shelby and many parts not correct for a Mach 1 or standard fastback.

See on the drivers side rear where I cut it out and filled that in.  I've done the other side now too.  Also the middle arm rest in a standard mustanf is flat.  no pleats kike that.  I filled those gaps in with some spot bondo and sanded it smooth.

Here are my door panels.  Those gaps that you see will be filled in with super glue and some super glue and accelerator.  I'll sand it smooth and there will be no more gaps (I guess thatch why they cal it gap filling glue haha).

This is the open trunk.  My car did not have the fold down seats so I put the flat package tray under the rear window.

Mach 1 cars had the openings for the tail pipes.  Since Mine was not a Mach 1, I will fill these in and make my own exhaust to match what was in my car.

Some nice effective "kit bashing" there Jeff,  I'm liking what you've done so far.

Jeff, looks great. Making a model of a car you have owned (and modified) is fun. Door, trunk and interior details are looking good.

Very good progress     So your 69 was a Sports roof body  

What Mustang kit are you using ??

I think the trunk looks great along with the door's  

The only difference between a 289 and a 302 was the stroke on the crank every think else was interchangeable

I like the 66 lid better, but if you smooth out the inner structure of the 69 to match the 1:1, then i think it will look great.

So cool the way you do the trunk lid reinforcing strips. I am so envious of the skill. Best of luck! Those Mustangs, like all the other cars, rusted out pretty fast and Bondo patch kits sold like hotcakes to owners.

The seperate sheet of plastic is the better method, me thinks. It has a more 'machine stamped'
look to it.

First class workmanship too!

Very nice work so far and it looks like you will be putting in some serious details into this one. I'm with Sam on the trunk lid.

My car was a looker on the outside but pretty well driven underneath.  Here is where I am with the start of the engine and chassis.

Engine and frame look suitably weathered Jeff. Nice one.

Very realistic weathering! Very cool to see you replicating a former driver, right down to the rust!

Some more work last night.  i tried to fabricate exhaust like I had on mine which were just pipes and a muffler (dual) but after several tries it wasn't coming out like I wanted.  It just looked like styrene tubing with a couple mufflers on it.   So I used the 67 Mustang exhaust and called it good enough.

I say 67 because I used the 289 out of the 67 kit as the engine.  Its a lot closer to the 203 that I had in mine than is the 428 that comes in the kit.
