Brand name of kit(s): Revell-Monogram – 1990 Mustang LX 5.0 2n1
This kit is a 1990 Ford Mustang 2n1 drag race kit. I wanted to go in a different direction and the goal of this kit was to make it look like it be a high horse power daily driven street car. The paints are all from Tamiya. Starting with surface primer, then Gray color coat and a couple coats of clear. All of the molding and door trim was hand painted gloss black. The suspension was modified for a lowered ride height. The car sits on a set of 18 inch Volk Racing G25’s wheels from the Aoshima Rocket Bunny Toyota 86′ Kit. I hand painted the silver rings on it to give a little contrast. For a little stopping power I used modified brakes from the Wings West Honda Accord kit. The interior was painted two tone light gray and flat black. The dash features a tachometer from 124stancebuilt, a boost gauge and photo etch head unit with equalizer. The seats are the drag seats that came with the kit, I just added some back felt material for a cushion and head rest. The interior also has a roll cage and a red seat belts. The 5.0 motor was built and wired with light blue plug wires. To wrap up the motor it also has a pair of turbo’s from eightyone81. Thanks everyone for checking out my 5.0 and a huge thanks to Scaledworld.net for keeping our hobby alive!
