    Hi Everyone, Justin here. I'm new here and I build scale models. The GT40 MKII Ken Miles (chassis 1015) is one of my favorite cars out there. I am in the process of super detailing a Fujimi Introduce Yourself I'm new here! Ford GT40 MKII Ken Miles edition 1/24 scale model and I joined this forum in hopes to find more information out there. I know it isn't an easy task, but I am sure someone will be able to help me out! Thanks!

    This is my current build log:

    Normally I build 1/144 gundams. From time to time I dabble in car, motorcycle and military builds.

    I can't see the link - it comes back as unknown. I can help with colours though. If you mean the 1966 MkII car, it was Ford Arcadian Blue, with a dark blue chassis. As it was a Shelby car the details are mostly similar to the no. 2 car. The Holman and Moody and Alan Mann cars are different in lots of details - don't use them for reference!

    I'm a long-time 1/25 model car builder (from childhood in the late '50s). Mostly, I build traditional style hot Introduce Yourself rods and customs. My customs are typically cars that could have been built in the '60s but look like nothing that was actually built, as far as I know. For example, here's a '60 Ford bubble-topped 3-wheeler:

    Here's my latest project, a '66 Riviera.

    This is for Pantablo, post #1795:

    Welcome (although I just joined myself). I saw your '65 Riviera at the Spirit of Speed show at the NHRA museum in Pomona, CA last December. Here's a pic so others can see how well it turned out.

    It's great to see that you reproduced the unusual door of the Riviera that had the outer skin as a separate piece. Your model looks great!

    thank you for the kind words.
    In my research I kept coming across the outer skin missing on these cars and figured it was a thing specific to these. So I had to replicate that. Iím really happy how it came out. I actually built it for a buildoff where everyone had to use the same kit. I did well there, getting 2nd place.
