With all this talk about budget cars I decided to finally take out a MM that I bought at WM last week. I got it so I would not come out empty heanded, it was $10 and I have an intention to do a resto-mod out of it (plus I have a thing for Red Mustangs) :giggle .
I know some are going to say: "save your money and buy the P-100 versions" (I already have them), but I must say, releases like this raise the budget bar again.
I feel that the modders are going to have a field day with this one.
For a $10 model here is what you get:
Seatbelts (front seats) with detailed latches.
Real door hinges (no doglegs).
Detailed engine with plug wires and paint detail. Even the coffee-can master cyllinder top is detailed.
Detailed grill, not photo etched but clear plastic w/the honeycomb design on it. (A first in this, I think)
Wire wheels (plastic and the spokes are thick) but nice and centers.
White walls with a corect by-ply patern.
Detailed top boot (the snaps are painted)
Chrome door sill
Door locks (they need to be detailed)
Detailed (paint) Transmission, exhaust, gas tank, sway bar, 3rd member, muffler, suspension, steering parts.
Detailed spare and opening trunk with a simulated gas filler hose.
The interior bright trim is detailed.
Antenna, wipers and door handles are chrome and well detailed.
It has a generator not an alternator.
The floor has embossed "running Horse" to simulate the floor mats.
It even has a parking brake release handle!
The sunshades need to be painted black.
The panel gaps are typical of budget models.
Glove box detail is a sticker.
The "gills" next to the grill are tampos.
