Mustang IMSA Motorsports
This model was built in time for the National NNL 38 theme "Road Racing in America" in October 2017.  I had the model for a few
years and bought it because I really liked the colour scheme.  The actual car was more like a Ford Capri than a Mustang and was
built with the help of Zakspeed out of Germany.

If you build this model, be aware of a few issues:
- Mine had a warped chassis, which I didn't discover until close to final assembly
- The rear wing locating tabs are not very precise and on this model is actually not centred compared to the body
- There are quite a few fit issues with the model, so lots of dry-fitting is necessary
