Kits are available to fit almost all size Mustangs from 1/7 scale up to 1/4 scale ... see the bottom of this ad.
These exhaust manifold kits will make your Mustang stand out above all the rest as no other single accessory will. The Mustang's exhaust system is one of its most distinctive features, but it's very hard to make look realistic. With one of these kits on your Mustang they will look right because they are right.
Developed from accurate scale sources, each exhaust set is as close to scale as practical. . Each stack is spaced precisely and at the correct angles rearward and downward. There is small precision relief around the base of each exhaust stack that creates the illusion that the shroud is sheet metal. All this is built into the cast shrouds along with stops to automatically set the correct depth for the pre-cut brass exhaust stacks.
You'll have to paint exhaust streaking on the fuselage however - this non-functional exhaust system just looks real.
These exhaust kits can be installed either during construction or after your Mustang is finished. Attached to the surface of the cowl, the manifolds normally won't interfere with the mounting of the cowl or with your engine installation. With some modifications they can be mounted from inside the cowl for additional realism. And the base of the exhaust stacks can be opened into glass cowls to vent additional cooling air from the engine compartment. They are also light – the Top Flite GS Mustang surface mount kit adds approximately 2 ozs (total) vs the vacuum formed kit parts.
Each kit includes everything needed for installation including a pair of cast resin shrouds (bases), brass exhaust stacks pre-cut to length, comprehensive illustrated instructions, alignment jigs, material used for forming the bands on the tips of the exhaust stacks - even a tool for masking the exhaust stacks for painting. Assembly and installation is straight forward and fully explained in the instructions, leaving you time to spend time painting them as realistically as you want.
