Basically this kit has been built straight out of the box, using almost all of the parts included in the kit, and small details such as generic photo-etched screw heads have been added. The objective of this tutorial is to share with the reader the steps that I followed to build this model.


The kit

The Ford Mustang GT4 was presented at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas in its 2016 edition, and was designed by Ford Performance in collaboration with Multimatic Motorsports, based on the Ford Shelby GT350R-C.

The GT4 was built with the goal of bringing the racing version to consumers who wanted to purchase this feat of engineering, rather than being geared towards the racing team market.


Tamiya offers a very complete 'curbside' kit, with good details that, in general, is easy to assemble, and hours of entertainment are guaranteed. However, and this is a very personal opinion, Tamiya could have opted for more striking and attractive decorations, different from those proposed in the box version since they are quite insipid.


Currently there are decal sets with alternative decorations for this Ford Mustang GT4 Tamiya kit, which can be found on the market.


I built the model in a street version, combining a very intense metallic lime green for the entire body, reference BMW Java Green (Gravity Colors GC-2417). With two parallel white stripes that cross the entire vehicle longitudinally, widely used in classic Ford and Shelby sports cars. Gravity Colors offers a wide range of metallic green colors with specific vehicle make codes, but when I saw a BMW i8 painted Java Green, I didn't hesitate to use that color for this road version Ford Mustang GT4 project.
