CS model

Hey guys,

Here's a cool model that someone put together of a GT/CS 8):

... although, as you read the thread, you'll discover that it was a custom job. But hey, you could claim that when Ford made GT/CSs, they were a little custom ;).

Re:CS model

Wow, that is a lot of work! I admire people who have the ability to do such delicate, detailed work. Wonder what he'd charge to make a Highland Green one?

Is he actually building that car as a hobby or actually planning to produce and then retail?

Re:CS model

From what I gathered on the web site, it took this guy two years to make this model. I think the price of one of these would be pretty high. If it took me two years to make something, it would be VERY expensive. The guy did a VERY GOOD JOB on that model! I really dislike that color though. :-\

I second that motion. I had a 71 Bronco that color, I never liked that color. It does hide the dirt well but that's about the only thing good I'll say about it.

This guy says it's his favorite....Go figure ::)

Re:CS model

I think that it's an out standing color. IT's different but I like it.

I know there were some other guys working on the CS diecast model car, and I haven't seen any updates lately.
However, I contacted Muscle Machines (http://www.musclemachines.com/index.asp) again to see if there was any interest on them creating a CS diecast model ala Muscle-Machine-Style ;D

Stay tuned ;) ...

Re:CS model

Don had been working on that since they were going to clone his car in miniature.

I received a response ;D!! First, this is my inquiry:


"Dear Sir, I'm following up on a request I made earlier this year regarding your Muscle Machine product line: Would you consider creating a 1968 California Special Mustang? This could be a great addition to your already colorful lineup of Muscle Cars. Please contact me and let me know (I know of potentially many interested buyers of this type of Mustang if you were to produce it). Thank You, "

He writes:

"The cost of the mold for 1:64 runs today about 40 thousand dollars. This is just for the mold.

The cost for a 1:18 scale runs about 130 to 160 thousands, again just for the mold.

I will pass on your suggestion to the Muscle Machine team.

Thank You and have a great weekend!

Richard - Funline Merchandise Co"

We'll see what the Muscle Machine Team has to say :) ... stay tuned ;)
