I finally got back to working on slot cars and finished up my Phase III Mirage:

Hi Chris,

 

I'm assuming you're asking about the "real" car? I don't know where it was taken. I was just Googling "Ford Mirage M1" and found the picture with an added aluminum spoiler. Thought it might go with the spoiler I added to my car.

Great looking car! I really like where you masked off the headlights leaving them clear.

Thanks Larry. My Xacto knife was as shaky as my detail paint brushes this time.  :wacko2:   Cutting the window and headlight masking was a chore. I hope my next project body is a roadster with headlight covers.    :laugh2:

I have a suspicion that pictures don't do this build justice. Incredible work, just incredible.
