The model is a little better now

Thanks to the gracious responders on this thread I am revising my earlier statement about the model being bogus. It looks like Revell added the necessary parts to the GT kit to convert it to a Bullitt. I thought I was duped. It is a little deceiving at first glance. Thanks.

do they sell a v6 model? you could use that grill, or cut yours up and modify it. <a href="http://s165.photobucket.com/albums/u71/a69stache/?action=view&current=6.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i165.photobucket.com/albums/u71/a69stache/6.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

Look closely. My kit has the GT grill and air cleaner, AND the Bullitt grill and CAI. The Bullitt pieces are molded in white. Revell just added the specific pieces to a regular GT model, kind of like Ford did with the real Bullitt.

Hey, K- just knowing you built your car was enough to consider you "THE MAN", but to know you then built a model of it? I am not worthy!

i just got the autoart model for xmas. its a nice model, mine doesnt have the 40th anni badges, its mostly correct, except when you look closely it has a 4v motor, and an earlier style dashboard with the defrost of the left side of the steering wheel. the trunk on the model is carpeted though ;)

kit arrived today (see pics) - Looks Great!

My kit arrived today. I bought it from someone on eBay. While I noticed the holes in the trunk immediately, I didn't realize there were parts I won't be using. Interesting that Revell included parts from another Mustang kit.



What I did see was the incredible level of detail (over 100 parts)... including decals for everything from the Bullitt insignia in the center of the steering wheel to the shift pattern on our shifter knob. :eek: :eek: :eek: And the Bullitt insignia for the fake gas cap... and the Ford Racing / Car Number image in the center of the engine compartment cross-brace... and the Pony logos in the center of our wheels. All this, to me, says Revell put plenty of thought into this kit. Some of the pics are below. And the full series of 19 pics can be seen here.

I'm looking forward to (slowly) building this kit (with Hesh, who is getting his from another eBay seller). First I've gotta find a good match for Dark Highland Green. I'll post pics from the build! :)

Can the holes in the trunk lid be filled?
Oh no, chrome wheels:(
I just got my kit today and It looks like it is going to need some work!

body filler time

The instructions suggest you either use body filler to fill those holes (which means sanding afterwards) or that you insert to plugs (furnished with the kit) to fill them in. I have not found the plugs yet, but think they won't result in the smooth surface that body filler and sanding will give.

Yes... chrome wheels. :( And the instructions talk about painting the spokes the appropriate color.

Lots of painting necessary with this kit!!!
