The best-looking year of Mustang, if you ask me! The car hadn't seen many changes to the engine or chassis by then, but the muscular "Coke bottle" styling had made an already great machine even more agressive-looking. As with most of my muscle car models, I used a die-cast replica to make sure everything was as realistic as I could make it. I hope you enjoy!
About this creation
I love dangerous machines.
Is it just me, or did a lot of these 60's and 70's chassis designs look a lot alike?
Originally, blue wouldn't have been my first choice for the interior. But as soon as I saw how it looked against the black body, I decided to keep it this way.
Sure, not much had changed under the hood by then...
But if you know what works, you might as well stick with it.
My favorite angle.
Comin' at ya!
I'm very happy with the way the car turned out, though I think my lighting could use some work. We just changed out the lights in the kitchen where I like to take my photos, and I'm no expert when it comes to photography. So, if anybody is willing to offer their advice on how to improve the lighting, I would be extrememly grateful!
And of course, I'd always like to know what you think of the car! Thanks for looking!

One technique I've used with some success is this...turn off the lights, put the model on something white, (poster board, dry erase board, bathtub...) and then shine a flashlight on the model.
WOW, sorry to reply so late! (school and Thanksgiving, you know) But I might just have to try something like that. I don't have any LED flashlights, but I always did like how your cars looked like they were sitting in a spotlight. Thanks for the tip!
very good mustang! i like the wheels a lot. and the engine and chassis are beautiful as always! and i think that i need to hurry hup with my new '70 barracuda. i have no car posted for weeks! anyway, keep up the good work!

I think '69's are better. But that's just me. I used to like '70's, but I changed. This is awesome!
Nice Mustang, Nate. One technique I've used with some success is this...turn off the lights, put the model on something white, (poster board, dry erase board, bathtub...) and then shine a flashlight on the model. Diddle with the camera settings until you get it to take a decent picture WITHOUT the flash, which causes a horrible glare. Blue LED flashlights seem to work the best. Check out some of my cars for some examples. A few worked well, a few didn't. Good luck! ps. It might not work on a black car though.
