model to sell
#11
G'day. Yes the bugger was on my knee sleeping 5 minutes later. I'm just a sucker for cats... Other cat lovers will know what I'm talking about. Actually I will probably go the other way around with the kit and use the new kit to fix the old model. The one he smashed was the mach 1 Japanese black and white police car with the metal wheels and battery for lights. Very rare... I even modified it so all the front and rear lights work and also made the blue and red lights on top strobe... yes it was my pride and joy...

indeed, a 1/12 is rare in itself. I have a 71 mach 1 @ 1/18 model which looks like will be taking it in to the modelers club to get assistance in cutting the top to make it a convertible like mine. Would like to wire it up. Would be a project as just installed sequential tail lights and multi color headlights. It will be a good project for this winter.

ps sorry to hear of its demise. We have some cats or should say several.
They are
always into something re i think a clip of all of them in a collage on the new upgraded first page in my photo album. On this web site. Where did you get the 1/12 model?

Search eBay for "1/12 mustang". They're for sale every now and again. There's 2 there for sale now but the cheapest is $222.
I think I paid way too much for the rare Japanese police car about 5 years about (nearly 400 delivered), but I just had to have it.
Then a couple of years ago I got the vanishing kit for 180. I made that one to be a "mini me" of mine in the garage.
Same paint, same mach1 woodgrain inserts, even little stickers in the engine bay and a period correct rego sticker on the windscreen.

Now that I'm repairing the cop car, I'm giving it the attention to detail as the last one so it won't be finished in a hurry.
They're a nice little distraction.... I'll post a little YouTube clip of it with all lights blazing when finished.

One question, will the other modelers you go to frown at you for chopping up a fastback and converting it into a vert? Hehe

The Lindberg kit is typical for 1/32 scale, i.e. no engine and very toy like as compared to a 1/24 scale model.

thanks. Have a 1/24 model w/nasa hood. If this one was a 1/24 it would fit perfectly in exchanging its standard hood. Looks like I'm just going to have to cut the roof off the model I have. Get some support and help as found a modelers club in the area.
