Re: Die cast Mustang models

I usually buy my diecast models from www.diecastmuscle.com
All their 2005 Fords are Preorder only right now, and none are 1:18 scale.

Thanks, Mike. I love this one,

http://www.diecastmuscle.com/store/Makes/Ford/AA73011

but I don't like the color. Do you know if they can be ordered in different
colors. Have you ever tried repainting one? I need Screaming Yellow!

The manufacturer decides what colors they produce and sell.
I've thought about painting my Black '03 Cobra model Silver to match my car.
I have taken it apart down to the shell before, but I wouldn't know where to
get replacement Cobra stickers for the 1/4's. Someome on SVTPerformance
painted one and used the stickers from a plastic model, they were a bit
small but it looked ok.

Good point. I wonder if the company would sell them. Hell with it, I'm gonna
call 'em.

Well, that place doesn't have them anymore. They can still be ordered at:

http://www.autoartmodels.com/pages/1_18/18index.htm

This must be the manufacturer in Hong Kong. I'm *not* going to call them!

Let us know if you get brave enough to try it.

Re: Die cast Mustang models

One of these days John, when I get everything all dragged out of this box
and that corner I probabaly will.
I seem to recall something that I had difficulty figuring out how to
disassemble.. the doors maybe?
*shaking her head*

When I get there, I'll holler for help.
After I get this 10 acres mowed, the car washed, the truck washed, the
laundry done, the floors cleaned, the beds made, bathrooms scrubbed, the
garden planted, weeds pulled, the pond de-algae-fied, supper cooked, dishes
done - the list goes on and on. You get my drift.

Re: Die cast Mustang models

I have a program called Sure Thing Decal Maker Standard which is
designed to make decals for models (planes, cars, whatever). The
basic program can be dl from the net but is limited to the decals
built into it.

However, for about $6.95 you can upgrade to the Standard Ed, which
allows you to create your own and they are scaleable.

www.surething.com 1-800-998-4555.
