"Not so factory ..." is simply beautiful, the feeling of a much driven steel beast. Truly exceptional.

Thanks men. I've got the engine bay done. I cobbled the 'Ford Motor Company' from bits of decals and steady brushing.


I made the starter relay and the horns and hood catch from scrap bits. The various decals were pinched from Als special decal tin.


I think It's looking ok, not too clean and not too dirty.

You're doing a lovely job on an old kit that's far from modern standards, mind you I love the old stuff.

The only flaw I can see is............none! A quality build all the way.

Thank you all. It is appreciated.
Some progress. I've scratch built quarter panel windows and a foot step and detailed the door cards.


I've sorted the headlights.


The back lights.


Coming along nicely. Though I find that the kits windscreen border is too close to the side trim. I would have expected a thicker bar in between with some body colour to show.

Your great work on a somewhat mediocre kit continues to amaze me. Awesome looking footsteps.

I'm surprised that the kit came with quad tailights - I built it decades ago and don't remember those.

I don't think it did. I think maybe that was his own added touch!
That was something quite a few Mustang owners did later on mostly on their pre-owned Mustangs!
A local dealer actually did it to some used Mustangs on their lot sever years all the way up to 1970 while others opted to order replacement Shelby Mustang taillights and install them on their Mustangs.

Hi all and thanks. An extra set of rear lights was included as an option so I thought why not.
I've made a headliner from fine felt.

Cool! That wasn't in the first release of that kit which is the one I had!

Thanks all. Go ahead DM and give it a go.
Nearly done, just a final polish, the badges, bumpers then I'll move onto the vinyl stripes I had planned from the start.
