Great details, especially the engine and engine bay. I love all the additional wiring. The power steering pump dip stick a nice add-on. Did you make the engine bay decals yourself? The stock looking trunk carpet is perfect. Keep up the good work.


Hi the decals I printed off myself it did take quite a few test prints to get the size almost spot on

Hi all

Engine is now in the engine bay permanently but only problem I've noticed is the decals are a little too big but I can live with it.

I've relocated the circuit board and waiting on a replacement board as it had W1-7 missing but I can use this board for the interior lighting.

Really can't wait for the body to turn up as it's due anytime this week and it can be test fitted.

Hi all once again

The body turned up and it looks great but with all the work I've done the front wheel hubs got damaged a while ago and needed jb weld to repair them I knew they needed replacing at some point one snapped few weeks ago and now with the body on the other side snapped so now waiting for back issues to arrive.

P-lother, where did you get your starter solenoid switch?
See your photo with part circled in Blue. And great authentic look on belts and hoses. Would you mind sharing how you got the authentic look? Thank you for any information on starter solenoid and hoses, belts.

I want this kit! Your attention to detail is fantastic - and I have to say your pictures look like the real thing with your weathering and all. Great job.

Go to model-space.com. I'm in North Carolina and I bought mine Nov. 2016 and have thoroughly enjoyed it. See my build at rpmracing18 Shelby build.

Hi rich
I used very thin copper wire, thin card, 1mm nuts and for the main part of the solenoid was cut from an old cheap plastic paint brush I cut up and sanded to shape.
For the engine belts that came with the model I just painted the pulleys gloss black and used 1200 grit sand paper on the balts for a matt finish and for the hoses around the engine was from different thickness of electrical wire painted humbrol gray and left for 1min and went over with a dry brush to create a dull finish.

Hi all

I've been busy so not done much through Xmas so I had a pause and fallan behind a little issues 93 to 96 should be here next week.

I've wired up the lights so It can be used on the batteries or mains
The front center grill lights work as high beams when the horn pressed

Added some more decals around the car plus owners manual in the glove box

Added wiper blades to the wipers
