I'd like to share my most recent model - 1:10.5 replica of 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429. Boss 429 was the high performance variant of first generation Mustang, equipped with a powerful 7.0 V8 engine. Only 1359 were made, and now there is one more :D

Watch it in all its glory:


  • RC drive - RWD with differential, 2x L motors
  • RC transmission - 4 speeds, sequential, M motor
  • Detailed V8 engine replica with fan connected directly to propulsion motors
  • RC steering - with moving steering wheel, M motor
  • Front suspension - double wishbone
  • Rear suspension - floating axle
  • Openable hood with lock controlled from the cabin
  • Openable doors with locks
  • Openable trunk
  • Adjustable seats (sliding forward - backward and seatback angle adjustment)
  • RC front lights

Please watch the video to see this machine in action and for more details.





I am quite happy with how I managed to include all the functions without compromising on proportions and interior in a relatively small model (46cm long). The biggest challenges were to fit piston engine over the suspension with the blue air intake under the hood without lifting it (as the result I had to make the hood hollow below the external air intake but still it was tight) and to fit interior over the gearbox. For that purpose I made the transmission very flat with gear shifting shaft actually crossing the drive shaft... (can be seen in action in the video - 2:30)


I hope you liked this model.

Love it! Really liked the side view comparison in the beginning of the video.

Nice mechanism for locking the doors with the rubber piece.

Very nice build! I especially like the rear view, very cool! The air intake infront of the rear wheel arch has to go further back, but other than that the proportions look pretty good :classic:

Incredible build - so many functions! It may sound odd but one of my favourite functions that you have managed to squeeze into this beauty is actually the very compact door locking mechanism - I love the use of those rubber Technic parts!
