This is the AMT version that I built a number of years ago and used a resin stock hood, single 4bbl carb, molded the roof on and sanded all the vinyl off, added the keystones from the parts box, as well as the Monogram exhaust and decals. I do believe its my best paint job ever.  Old school rattle can Testors enamel and clear....unpolished.

Looks good to me! The flat black touches and stripes make the model!

, looks like it must have gotten side tracked into the Ford Mustang factory paint area Nice looking build Sam, the panel lines look very convincing. I like the colour and the flat black hood.

Good job, that's the first one I have seen where the roof looked correctly shaped around the side windows.

Great job! I really like the change to a flat hood; not often seen in kit form.
