Build a 1/25 Scale Mustang Boss 302 RC Model
Our latest build features one of Revell's recent model kit releases, the 1969 Mustang Boss 302. A muscle car/pony car legend with great looks and plenty of power. Of all the Mustangs released over the past 50+ years, this particular year with Boss 302 trim has to be near the top when you're talking about the greatest Mustangs of all time. While our tiny radio controlled replica focuses a little more on scale realism than raw power, this sub $100USD car is a lot of fun to drive and a relatively easy to build. If you're ready to build your own RC replica, you'll find helpful information, videos, and links below.

This project has served as a way to test out some new parts. Those being a new Velcro body mount design, and a new wheel adapter design. Both proved to be successful, though we do want to work on the Velcro mount design to keep the body more stable.
In general Velcro body mounts will have their advantages and disadvantages over other means of mounting the body, such as magnets, pins, or screws.
