    This is a project I've been working on back and forth for about a year or so. probably longer. The main reason I don't take many commissions. :(  I've never done a reshell in this scale before. It's nice working with some bigger pieces. I also rarely tackle anything that's not g1 based but this was too cool an idea to pass up. I also loved all the vintage 1/24 customs that everyone was doing and I wanted to play. :)  anyway here are some wip shots of the process.

    Since this was an american car I decided to go with an american alcohol sponsorship. PBR's colors and general blue collarness was perfect in my opinion.

    thanks for looking guys :)

    This came out sweet! You've nailed the panelgaps pretty much perfect & that 60's era sponsorship brings me back to a simpler time... Very Nice! :thumb 

    Oh & can I put in a request for a few more pics of the completed altmode? :wink:

    Excellent work all round; personally I think the Shelby front end actually looks better proportioned as a chest than the original Alt.

    The speakers are a nice touch too, the white cones breaking up the black & and they help the shape transition to the waist... all very good, great attention to detail.

    Wow, never woulda pictured him as a Mustang, but he wears it well! Looks like you managed to use every bit of space in there, very nicely done in both modes, tight seams too!

    How is it only Ninos can make Fords and PBR look good (But not taste good). Very nice re-shell bro. Seems it doesn't matter what scale you work in as the end results are always a treat for all.
