    U.S. INSIGNA RED is a problem there are more than 4 variants one thing is for sure the us insigna red is red unlike the british which is a reddish brown and varies from dark red to bright red. do you have the f.s. number on the instruction sheet or reference? that way i can help you by comparing the colour with the f.s.stantard colour chips

    Hey William where has this build gone?!! Didn't you have time to continue it or do you have exams at the moment? Would love to see the rest of it. It is going to be one nice looking Stang.
