All done. Painted with several shades of Alclad. Cockpit details, seat, radio, battery, etc are Barracudacast as are the tires. I decided not to weather this one. Applying the decals for the "lightning bolts" was a bear! I'm glad I had a extra sheet for backup. I hope y'all like it.

John, again a master piece, and those bolts give it a special look, great looking Mustang.

Fantastic John...I'm curious where do display all your finished models? You must get asked this quite often based on your output, but I don't recall seeing the question in any of your threads since I've been active.

 

I hope they're not out in the open collecting dust...

Awesome work as always ... just love the NMF and will be going back and re-reading your build as I always find new tricks and techniques to add to my war chest.

Thanks! I have 4 display cases which are now full so I have to do some creative thinking about this. And I have no more room for another case!
