It's been quite a while. Sorry about that. That's how it is here on the West Coast. You don't just rush a ride. You take a good look at it. You try loving it despite
its imperfections. Then, when the right time and the right parts come, you erase those imperfections in the most majestic possible way. You smooth it
out you know.
What can I say? After sorting out my bricks in September, I finally had the chance to quickly make cars that would look like the real thing.
Sadly it wasn't enough, as the blocky-ness was too obvious. That's why I later began ordering Speed Champions sets which would be used for my own creations.
Do I regret spending money for that? No, not even one bit. The new parts enabled me to completely smoothen every single rough edge that was present on the car.
Now what has changed in the front? Not much. It has a proper splitter now and the headlights are smoother, thus making the car appear nicer.
A slight frontal side-view. I hope you guys like the extra background.
Same goes for the other side. The new fenders let me make the vinyl stripes a bit longer which is super nice.
Going slightly to the rear...
The rear lights are the same as before. What ain't broke doesn't need fixing.

Blocking off the main road to show-off my car. How nice of me.
This is how the car looks like in the workshop (Yes I made a workshop)
Pretty good lookin' ain't she?
Dyno testing seems to be going well.
So far so good (Yes, the wheels on the Dyno work.)
Repairs are common here.

Let's see how the Mustang has improved over the years.
Looks like Romeo has no chance against grandpa.
Obviously it's a heavy old American machine, so not only is it durable, it'll smash everything that comes in its way.
Being an expsensive classic muscle car, it grants you access to the Rich kids' club.
And you'll also be well respected by other muscle car enthusiasts.
I love 60s muscle cars and this turned out magnificently. This is by far my favourite mustang and your moc does a fantastic job of capturing that shape, well done. By the way if you have an extra minute could you check out my camaro.

Great Mustang, very nice work on getting the look and feel right with it. the hood and tail lights are especially well crafted.
Thank you. Actually, thanks to everybody here who likes my model here.
It was the first car that I created after my "dark ages" since I wanted to behave all "grown up" and "edgy". Thanks to the Speed Champions line, I got curious again, first buying the Blue Mustang GT and then the rest of the line up, it got me creating my own things again.

That front end is just brilliant. The hood solution seems so simple in the end but it is ingenius conception. Best use of that funny 4x4 part I ever seen.
Man I'm glad you noticed that. The first thing that I knew how to make were the rear lights and side stripe. I needed some time to figure out how the hood would work without using too many parts. Then I looked at the real car, and of course the black part of the hood stands out so much, that I thought the 4x4 shield plate would be perfect as a bonnet.
