You will be the Frankenstein's Monster!!!

   Today I will not show you a new diecast model, but I will show you the second gift I received during the Christmas holiday from Alessio (the user "testarossa" on this site). As you remember, it's a damaged Shelby Mustang GT500KR and watching the pictures you will notice the restoration is not easy: the paint is compromised, the windshield and the left window are scratched and all the openings are broken (for this reason, there is a red tape on every opening). After a long cogitation, I've decided the restoration is not possibile (and remember, I have yet another perfect Shelby Mustang GT500KR in my collection), so I will convert this Mustang into the Frankenstein's Monster from the "Death Race" movie!!! I will start this customization the next week, so stay tuned!!!

The Mustang is naked!

   Yesterday, I started to dismantle the Shelby Mustang GT500KR and during the next weeks, I will try to convert it into the Frankestein's Monster car (Death Race). As you can see, I removed all the opening parts: the doors, the trunk and the hood. Moreover, I removed also the internal parts and the windows, so now I'm ready to strip all the shell and then I will create and apply new body parts using the plasticard.

The templates for the roof and the front bumper

   During this weekend, I started to create (using the paper) the templates to define the new hood and the new front bumper. When I will finish the templates I will construct these pieces using the plasticard. It's not easy to create a piece from scratch, but I think I will make my best to do it!!

Death Race Mustang, working in progress

   As promised, today I want to show you the progress on my current job, the Ford Mustang used in the movie "Death Race". As you remember, I received this diecast model as a Xmas gift from Alessio, a user of this site: the model is a ruined Shelby Mustang GT500KR and considering its conditions, I've decided to transform it into a new car and the better solution was the Frankenstein's Monster car. To do this, I started creating some layout with the paper and then I recreated the final shapes on the plasticard. This is the result and I'm very satisfy about the result obtained. During the next week, I will continue to customize this car, especially on the rear part. I hope you like it!

The shield

   During the last weekend, I worked on the Frankenstein's Mustang from the movie "Death Race". I created the 2 lateral air intakes (back to the doors) and the rear spoiler with the big rear shield. Now I need only to create all the components on the quarter panels. Stay tuned for future updates!!

Other updates on the Frankestein's Mustang

   Yesterday, I created a lateral body extension on the left quarter panel. I need to finish it, adding other 2 elements and then polishing it, but I'm satisfied about the result obtained. Within the next fews days, I will create the same pieces on the other side and then I will proceed to create the armours on the screens.

Death Race: the shell is almost finished!

   Finally, today I finished to create the extra elements on the body of the Frankestein's Mustang. To complete the exterior I need only to create the armours on the screens and the machine guns over the hood, then I will paint all the body with a dark grey, adding also a ruined effect. Have a nice weekend!

The first shield

   Only limited progress during these days... I created the shield for the back window: this part is composed of two main parts (one overlapped to the other) and 8 little strips arranged adjacent to each other. Finally, the shield has been superimposed and fixed to the back window with double-sided tape.
   In the coming days I hope to be able to terminate the shields on all other glass surfaces.

The shields on the windows

   After some days of work, I've finished the protective shields for all the windows. Now I need to finish each piece with sandpaper and then the body will be ready to be treated with the primer. Meanwhile, I'm trying to think how to create the machine gun and how to customize the interior. But now enjoy the pictures!

Death Race Mustang, body works finished

   During the previous days, I finished to work on the nose of the Ford Mustang used in the movie "Death Race". Now nothing more that give it a beautiful coating of primer and then find the right color to paint it...

The Mustang with the primer

   After one week, I finally found the time to give the primer on the body and all the elements I have added to the Mustang of the movie "Death Race". Now I need only to find a good mat black, adding also a rough effect to the car. It will not be easy!
