I've finally gotten around to taking some pics of this WIP. I'm doing a replica of my best friends 95 Mustang Cobra. Most of the stuff I have on the diecast are things he already has done to the car, but a few of the others are stuff he intends to do such as the engine and the red inserts on the interior. I did some in depth detailing on the interior including adding seatbelt's and buckles. I'll keep updating this thread as I go through the project...

Interior:



Under body and side with wiring for lights:

You might have noticed the lights sticking up in the engine bay area. That's to replicate the red lights that him and I put inside the hood on the real one (no he doesn't drive with them on).

Here's the real hood after detailing it and adding the lights:


Now onto the engine:
I painted the intake manifold plaque for him and here's the before and afters of the real thing:



And here's the 1/24 engine that I'm working on to go in the car:

That is so cool...

Seeing the wiring laid out for the lights and the distributor cap make me realize just how much my customs are lacking. Very nice work. :thumbsup:

Well it's about time for an update on this one. I've got the wiring all completed so I have operational lights :D the engine is getting close to being ready to put in the car and have the final details completed. I still need to place the door panels on the car, and then clean it up with some wax.

Base:




I have to give a shout out here to Joe at Joeblown customs. If you look closely at the engine I've got boots on the spark plug wires. I stumbled across his website, http://joeblown.com/ and asked him how he had done some of the details... not only did he tell me how, but he sent me a sample of some of the wires he uses for boots so I could find more. Great guy with some real talent! Thanks Joe! :thumbsup:

Little bit of an update on this one. I have the engine installed with the exception of radiator hoses and minor detailing to the intake and top end. I am at a dead end though the way I have my LED's wired sucks the battery dry like in a day because of using 2 different types of LED's with no resistors (at least I think that's the problem) so if any of you have any suggestions and I will also be posting this one up in the model lighting forum...



Here's where all the wiring comes together:


Thanks for looking :wave:
