I bought this kit for the rims to use on My Eleanor build, but decided to build it. Anyone going for this kit, be warned that it will be a challenge to make it come out good. The directions are as clear as mud! The engine compartment lacks detail as well as accuracy. The interior is better than the 73 Mustang from AMT. Very few locator pins and no engine mounts, front bumper locator pins are slightly off as well as other issues. I will post some of the issues in pics. The decals come with markings for a Mach 1, but only the rear stripe and nothing for the hood or sides? Really? Why I decided to torcher myself with this when I still haven't finished the 73 kit? Only God knows!

So in the beginning of this it looked like a decent kit only lacking in detail decals. Well so much for that! 1st my fault for not test fitting the doors before installing, then after hours of trying to get the front of the dash to fit and After installing the completed interior tub into the body the doors won't close! Come to find out the lower part of the dash as well as the upper door mold on the body prevented the closure of the doors, to which I had to file to fit. Then I went to test fit the lower chassis only to find the rear tires didn't fit right in the fender wells. Also for some reason the engine didn't fit right! Come to find out that the single pin mount for the engine was off by about 5mm which you could see by where they had the steer linkage bent to accommodate the oil pan. I assumed that this had been figured out! My bad again! So as close as I thought I'd have this done by now, everything is ripped up so it can be assembled correctly! As anything with these old kits Round2 puts out, be prepared to build a puzzle not a model kit! Pictures will follow shortly.

Following. Fitting after painting is always a bummer.
22. February, 06:10
Tim Heimer
You know it Bill!! This kit is one of those one thing leads to another! I've had to redo the top half of the engine from handling it as well as other things! I have all sorts of filing dust inside the interior I have to some how get out as well! UGH!

Nice build and dio. Its a shame the kit doesnt give trunk details, you're right that would be cool with all the supermatural slaying kit, but that'd be a ton of work to scratch build.

Hi Tim,
For this Porsche build COVID build #4 Porsche 911 | Album by Mahoo76 (1:24) I’m planning on using Tamiya paint TS-88 Titanium Silver, Tamiya Gloss, Lacquer, 100ml
What kind of primer can I use best to get the best result?
Alclad gloss black, alclad matt black with microfiller, vallejo acrylic black, mr surfacer, tamiya extra fine white/grey?
13. November 2020, 12:47
Tim Heimer
I've always had luck with the Tamaya fine or extra fine primer when using Tamaya paint and lacquer. After using the clear lacquer I then Use the Novus #2 & #1 polish. although if the paint came out rough I may give it another coat of clear and use 8000 grit 1st. I actually mix a 70/30 of 2 & 1and use an old cotton sock or a piece of flannel from an old lounge pants or an old sweatshirt to finish it off. again depending on how it comes out I may also hit it again with the #1 for the high polished look. Also: save the chrome trim for last, unless you clear coat yours. I hope this helps! This is the stuff, I just grabbed this site, I get mine at my local shop. https://banksupplies.com/731-70008?msclkid=8a9aa7378b441c332e1bf8992826095f&utm_source=bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=Shopping%20-%20Office%20Products&utm_term=4577198190790445&utm_content=Cleaning
13. November 2020, 15:33
Martin Oostrom
Okay, Tamiya ef White primer it is then.
I have sanding cloths up to 12000 and the Tamiya polish medium/fine/shine. Old cotton socks and a real microfibre polishing cloth are available as well. So I'm good to go in that department.
Thanks Tim, you're a gem 👍
13. November 2020, 18:09
Tim Heimer
Glad to help. Sounds like you're good to go!

All I need now is for the COVID to go away and get back to my spray booth 😄
13. November 2020, 21:18
Martin Oostrom
Follow up question. The bare plastic, polished as smooth as a newborn baby, or scuffed with xxx grit, so the primer has something to bite into?
15. November 2020, 09:05
Tim Heimer
Due to fine molding lines that I would assume were good, I usually do a 2000 wet sand before priming plus it helps the primer bite. Then wet sand again with 3-4000 depending how primer came out. Polishing is meant for paint or clear coat only. Hope this helps.
17. November 2020, 05:57
Martin Oostrom
👍 of course this helps. I will try the Gearhead method on the next car paint job.

Thanks Bob, and no. The final date of my divorce is in December, plus the hoops of fire I'm trying to jump through for medicare as well as other crap I'm going through! I just had a knee operation 3weeks ago.

good luck luck with that Tim!

I know what your going through. I too, Divorced, I don't do Medicare but I have my fights with the VA and I too have had knee surgery after an IED hit my vehicle in Iraq in 2008 on top of the 2 titanium pates and 12 screws in my neck after another IED got me in Afghanistan. I swear the Army doctor that did my knee was last in his class, still hurts like hell to this day ! But keep the faith and keep on modeling on my friend !

I thank you guys for your support! Bob, I'm ALMOST in the same shape as you are, My whole neck is fused with rods, lower back has 3 vertebrae fused, both shoulders and both knees have been operated on, and I
was only a forklift mechanic! Sorry to say but at least I had good surgeons. I have a good idea of the pain you feel and am sorry to hear you have to deal with that! It seems modeling is good therapy for many here.
