Hello everyone.

Long time watcher, first time poster.

Has anyone built this?



It is a 1/12 scale Doyusha Ford Mustang Mach 1. I remember when these kits first appeared in Australia and the hobby shop up the road (remember those) got me to build a few of them for display in the shop, but not this one. I also have the 1/12 Lamborghini Countach LP400 but that has been built.

Any comments?

Cheers
Warren

That's a beautiful car.
Please post some more information about the kit.
How complete is it? Engine, details on the underside, insides et.c.?

Thanks for the welcome Robin.

First time poster in this forum..

I also have about 20 other 1.12s in the collection, mostly Tamiya, but some weird ones like a 1/12 Mazda RX-7 by Fujimi.

I have opened the box and someone has attempted to paint the body and some panels a nice blue, but it will have to be fixed up as I can see some sink marks in the paint.

Being 1/12 and a pretty simple cars it won't be hard to add a bit of detailing. I usually go to town with PE, wooden decks and brass bits on my ship builds but I don't think there will be any detail sets out there for this model.

It has good engine detail etc. I also picked up a 1/8 Monogram 32 Ford Hot Rod that came yesterday. I will attempt to start blogs for both of them if and when I ever get arounf to building them.

Cheers mate
Warren

Hi Warren,
I assume that you are aware that there is a group of forums for auto modellers? That is where the car builders hang out.
Let me know if you want me to move this thread

Hi, Warren! and welcome to AutoModeler as a poster!

I am in auto models for couple of years now but I never heard of such kit manufacturer! Ir is true, my horizon is limited to 1/35 - 1/24 scales but yet...

All more interesting! As Robin suggested, some pictures with the sprues and some extra info will be more than welcome!

Cheers!

Hi Warren,
And welcome to the auto community. We're a small group but growing.

I've heard of Doyusha, but I've never seen any of their kits nor builds of them. I'm mostly a 1/25, 1/24/ & 1/20 scale race car builder, so my path wouldn't really cross theirs.

Looking forward to following your build.

Joel

Woooh there Joel! No one said anything about a build just yet!

But as requested here are various photos of the sprues etc.

Thanks for pictures, Warren!

One of the famous "multimedia" kits from yesteryear! Very nice and probably very rare!

A build thread will be nice indeed!

Cheers!
