Hi again its time to show you the progress of the next 4 issues
Its all work on the interior for this part so here goes

ISSUE 45


PARTS LIST:
Right and left kick panels
Switch housing
Accelerator pedal switch
Brake pedal switch
Pedal unit
Screws



THE BUILD
First we need the front floor from the previous issue, align the right kick panel up with the projecting lugs on the floor pan, Insert 2 MP01 screws into two of the projecting lugs and 1 MP03 screw in the final lug to secure. The same process then follows to fix the left kick panel.

Next we install the switches into the recess ensuring you have them the correct way around, the wires are numbered 01 02.
Placing the floor pan upside down hold the switches in position (can be a bit of a fiddle) and secure the switches onto the angled post fixing with an MP01 screw. Next we fit the pedals be careful here not to break the plastic pins on the back of the pedals as they will operate the switches later on.
Secure the pedals to the underside of the dash via 2 MP01 screws.




ISSUE 46

PARTS LIST:
Dashboard
Fuse cover
Screws



THE BUILD
Locate the hole in the dashboard for the fuse cover, Insert the post in the fuse cover in the hole in the dashboard making sure the recess in the cover is at the bottom, Press fit and simply tighten with 1 MP03 screw. To finish this stage we simply test fit the dashboard to the floor pan.



ISSUE 47

PARTS LIST:
Stickers
Instrument glass
Dashboard frame
Dashboard trim
Shelby badge base
Screws



THE BUILD
Now we move on to the details in the dashboard, Using the tip of a craft knife and a pair of tweezers place the stickers for the clocks and dials onto the dash, as always with stickers ensure everything is clean and the stickers should adhere properly.
Next we fit the binacle glass into the back of the dashboard frame (careful not to mix this up with the dashboard trim like I did lol)
Fit the frame onto the dashboard the glass should sandwich between the two parts.
Next we place another sticker in the middle of the dashboard trim and secure the trim with 3 MP01 screws. Finally fix the Shelby sticker to the badge base. The base then secures to the dash trim via 2 MP05 screws.



HINT
Make sure surfaces are clean for stickers to adhere properly.
Be sure to wipe any finger prints/smudges from the dial glass before securing in place.

And finally
ISSUE 48

PARTS LIST:
Radio
Gauge stickers
Gauge pod mount
Gauge glass
Gauge pod
Glove box
Glove box lid
Screws



THE BUILD
First step with this stage we install the radio, Nice simple step, Secure with 2 MP01 screws.
Next we have more stickers. Place the 2 gauge stickers onto the pod mount, Now place the gauge glass over the stickers.
Next we place the gauge pod over the gauge mount sandwiching the glass and secure with a single MP05 screw. Apply the final sticker in the centre of the pod gauges (Mine went a little wonky)
Next we secure the pod to the dash under the radio via 1 MP05 screw.

Now is the glove box. Nice simple step, secure the glove box to the dash via 3 MP01 screws.
Then we attach the glove box lid to the dash by inserting the 2 plastic pins into the holes in the dash board. This can be a bit of a fiddle, Careful not to snap the pins< Once completed you should have a glove box that opens/closes.
Fianlly we can secure the dashboard to the floor section via 2 MP03 screws.



MODS
I think it would be a good idea here to have the dashboard clocks illuminated for that extra detail.
Also maybe some subtle lighting in the foot wells to enhance the detail

That concludes this months build and leaves us 48% complete
Once again thank you for following my build diary and I hope you all have a great christmas and all the best for new year
Next update Jan 2017BigGrin

Welcome back everyone
Hope everyone had a nice Christmas

Lets get going again with

ISSUE 49

PARTS LIST

Rear floor
Passenger seatbelt anchorage
Drivers seatbelt anchorage
Seatbelts



THE BUILD
Align the holes on the bottom of the anchorage to the corrosponding holes in the rear floor, Next we marry the front and rear floor together with 4 screws.
Now we push the metal buckle of the seatbelt into the slot on the floor, If you look closely there is a plastic pin that the buckle secures to. Stage complete




ISSUE 50

PARTS LIST
Front and rear floor mats



THE BUILD

Simple step here just take the front floor mat and align the pins on the underside to the hole in the floor and push fit (can take some gentle persuasion) Repeat this with the other 3 floor mats.
Now we finally get to fit the front seats.
Place the pins on the underside of the seat to the holes on the bottom of the floor and just secure the seats with 2 MP01 screws



MODS
Maybe paint a little piping on the floor mats the same colour as the car

ISSUE 51

PARTS LIST
Rear seat base



THE BUILD
Nice simple step here, place the floor assembly upside down and marry the rear seat base to it via 4 MP01 screws



ISSUE 52

PARTS LIST
Rear luggage platform



THE BUILD
Again a simple step.Turn the cabin floor assembly from the previous stage upside down, align the holes from the luggage platform onto the posts on the cabin floor and secure with 3 MP01 screws



Thats it for this month and leaves us 52% complete
Thanks for following BigGrin

Hi all first of all sorry for the lack of updating but life has been busy.

Ive still been getting on with my build when time allows me tho and thought id share a quick snap of the progress as of today



Ignore the brackets on the wheels that's just to stop it rolling awayBigGrin

Cant believe the weight of it with the body in placeBlink

Still been following a lot of the build diaries on the Mustang and all I can say is Wow some of the talents out there are very impressive

Will update again when time allows

August 2017 since I last updatedBlushing Blushing
But as promised the finished model is here and what a labour of love this was
A truly fantastic kit



I finished her the end of jan but then moving house and work commitments haven't allowed me the time to keep up with the updates



Ive still got a few niggles to sort, 1 being the number plate at the front got snapped during house moveCursing
Ive got the new one now thoCool



She really is a heavy one, large too again reminding you of the quality of this kit



I do have some future plans 1, being to dust it offBlushing 2, fit the replacement number plate/tag and more,,, but for now I still enjoy looking at her as an out of the box build

Hope you enjoy and sorry for the build diary running dryCrying
