I was attempting to make a spoiler for my Mustang model cause I was bored, and it turned into a bubbling pile of melted plastic and it dripped onto the bottom of the oven. Then a flame ignited and I exclaimed "HOLY $H17!" and doused my little oven with water, nearly destroying my oven.
:(
Not cool. So as you can see, I need a bit of help in the 1/18 model customizing department. Anyone have any tips on making a 99 Maisto Mustang GT into a Mach 1? Anything would be much appreciated. Thanks!

So I noticed. I've been browsing around in the forum for a month or 2 now and I finally decided to post. I have seen some people's work here and it left me jealous! I wished I had the patience to do the kind of awesome jobs they do on custom models! But it's cool, practice makes perfect.

Pastadude,

Welcome aboard and glad to have you :mrgreen:

Are you talking about the Mach 1 with the shaker hood :?:

Not sure what kind of wing your try to make, you may have to elaborate a little more. :?:

Yeah I learned my lesson with plastic...

But yes I am talking about the NEW Mach 1 with a shaker hood. I want to convert my 99 Mustang GT coupe to a Mach 1. It dosen't seem too hard. Just a simple hood scoop, side scoops, front air dam, and spoiler. The paint is really easy...I'm good at that. And the headlights are not even an issue anymore. My Cobra R and 03 Cobra look much better after my Maisto headlight treatment. So the only thing I need to worry about is molding this scupely to the hood and as side scoops.

I would suggest a using a dremel to cut the hood. You may also need some putty for finishing touches.

The only thing I can't think of is converting the existing engine to relect the same detailing and accuracy that will be needed for a model that doesn't have a butchered look. :?
