    I had a really good time with my Dyno Don Maverick build. True....there were some trying times involved but I think I've my process down on these cars now. I have another Jo-Han Maverick in the stash in glue bomb form. I found a spare unpainted body and hood on ebay so I picked it up so I could at least start fresh. One of the things that I DON'T have for this build is a suitable glass assy so I'll be looking for one of those. I was hoping to build a 429 car but Hubert Platt's Maverick reached out and grabbed my attention and it is equipped with a SOHC motor so......we'll be going with another one of those. My other hang up is that I only have a few reference photos for this car and would like some more references. If anybody has any I'd sure appreciate any help I could get in replicating this car.

    I received the decal sheet yesterday in the mail:

    Right you are Rick. I'd really like some interior and engine shots but I'm highly appreciative of these.

    I can help you with some photos ;) one of those might be a mustang engine bay but it’s one of his cars and should be similar.

    You might want to message the official FB and see if they have any interior photos.

    Thank you for the vote of confidence William. I'll make the most out of the material you've given me here. Being a 429 Boss car makes me happy because I've been wanting to build another 429 in scale.

    I built one for my first 56 F-100 I built around 6 years ago:

    You definitely do great work and I look forward to seeing how the project turns out. I will keep an eye out for more photos of the car for you.

    Thanks bud. I've got one build in front of it that'll take me another 3 months or so and I'll be getting started on this one. Plenty of time to get all the reference, materials and parts I'll need for this one.

    P.S. Hopefully this one doesn't take me a friggin' year to build. lol

    I would love to build a real deal Boss 429 but my wife thinks having a place to live takes priority!

    Here is what this car looked like before. The owner bought the car from a friend of mine and then I sold him the grille and windshield trim
