  1. VERY nicely done, Steve !

  2. Steve,

    What paints did you use? The natural metal finish goes along way in representing a Mustang in theater. Nothing shiny and new but, rather rather warned and used. The after market products really adds that extra touch. The tires and the prop along with the decals make this build a winner.

    Two thumbs up.

  3. I applied a flat coat on the upper surface with some very mild oil and chalk weathering

  4. Very nice and colorful Mustang, Steve.
    You did great on the paintwork, especially that colorful spinner.

  5. Amazing Mustang, Steve!

  6. Now that's an horse of a different color, great color scheme.

  7. That is a cool scheme on a Pony! Nice build - well done.
