Nice Mustangs Chris!
I like the Bullitt version........of course, having one in the garage makes me biased.
Here is another Mach 1/ The Original 1969 Mach 1:

Don't know if this build's worthy to be posted, but here's my meager attempt at a '67 from a few years ago.






Worthy? Dude..... this is awesome. I love the color.
Please tell me what scale it is. I have a ton of pix I need to upload, but none of my stuff, looks this good. Have you thought about building a diorama for your pix. This Mustang looks quite real. AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That is a beautiful color on your AMT '67 Shelby.
A brilliant orange.
Here is a '66 Shelby GT 350:

I know, I know.... I'm a Chevy guy.... shhhhh don;t tell no one....
This mustang is amazing. I love it. I need to know what scale?
I build mostly 1/24th, 1/25th scales for the most part. I dont really get into the smaller scales. I did build a repilica of my brother in laws 77 Old Cutlass in 1/64, that was tough.

This is a Monogram 1/24 scale '70 BOSS 302 kit.
with MCW Grabber Orange paint & FredCadyInc. Decals.
I built it up as a replica of a car that cruised my hometown in the seventies. that car was a '70 Mach 1 with a 351C.
it was sold new in Kansas City, as a "Twister Special". a very limited production series that the Kansas City ford dealers had built to bring in foot traffic to their dealerships. The total for the Twister Mach 1's was 100 units,
with about half being powered by 351C motors, half with 428 cobra jet's.
Monogram/Revell has gotten a ton of mileage out of this tooling.
right now, I'm in the process of building a grabber blue version
but as a street machine, instead of a stock version.
just getting the wheels adjusted so I can get the seventies stance I want.

Here is a Mach 1 - 'mock up' of the build in progress:

Awesome ride.... I fell in love with the Mustang in 1970, my uncle drove up in a brand mew 1969 Mach I, I was sold on muscle cars there and then, I was 5 years old.
I need to get a bunch of my models posted. I will take some pics tomorrow and post them.
Thanks for sharing, I could talk model cars all day, ask my wife, I drive her crazy.

Thanks guys. Used to have a '68 fastback, just had to build one up in memory. It's from an AMT kit, scale either 1/24 or 1/25 (can't remember which now).

hmm, ... I seem to see a lot of car books behind that GT350, as well as some of the builds. Gotta love the '60s muscle cars.

I used to have a 69 Fastback. I sold it when my daughter was born 15 years ago. What was I thinking????????????

I miss that car and with todays prices can never replace it, but I have an 06 convertible that really helps me take my mind off of it:)

I have a '68 GT 350 in the pipeline, along with a '67 GT 500.
