Muscle Monday Mustang

I normally don't collect cars that aren't of 64th scale or thereabouts (looking at you Tomica) but after watching the movie Need for Speed, I fell in love with the Mustang hero car featured in the film. As soon as I got home from the theatre, I searched on the Googlewebz for "Need for Speed Mustang diecast" and lo and behold Maisto at that time was making one in 24th scale.

I purchased this model back in July at my local hobby store that I frequent weekly. It was on display nearest the door for everyone to see beside its Sesto Elemento sibling. Without hesitation I grabbed the box and went straight to the cashier with a massive smile on my face possibly scaring the cashier with my grin in the process.

Being a lo-buck model, it is detailed quite well. The overall body is nicely done with the front and rear showing the Mustang's aggressive face and clever sequential tailamps respectively. Both doors and the bonnet open while unfortunately the boot doesn't.

Opening the bonnet shows a 5.8L supercharged Coyote V8 with a few chrome painted pieces and a yellow filter on the intake.

The interior is nicely done albeit being made from hard plastic.

Overall, I absolutely love this car. If you loved the Need for Speed movie or Mustangs in general, I recommend picking this up. I paid $25 mine and I think it was money well spent.
