My Cobra collection
Posted 19 October 2012 - 11:26 AM
I've got nearly 100 kit issues of 57 Chevys (some are slight variations) but nearly 1000 of all sorts in my collection at 1 time.
After 20 years of collecting, the 1;1 became a reality & most (except the kits) have now been sold.
I kept the kits, as thats what got me into 57's (hence username) even though most are 2 door coupes & I bought a sedan !
Keep collecting Cobraman & 1 day the 1;1 will be the ultimate edition to you collection.

sorry to bring this back up but im still wonderin about 1/25 / 1/24 scale cobra daytona coupes, what brand is that one with the usa flag on it? Remember I got my blue crew and i still keep an eye out hoping some idiot is cleaning out his grandpas attic and sellin really cheap on ebay, even though most builders that know something would jump on it faster than a bugatti veyron.(<--- Oh No!). Id be happy just finding a body and glass and slapping an amt or revell cobra under it. Or even a 1/24 diecast. Again after almost a year great collection.

Hey Jake. I think your talking about the small box. If so it is a 1/40 th I think and it is a very simple kit that looks no where like the photo on the box. There are a couple of nice Daytona Cobra kits out there but one will cost you about 120.00 and the other ( a resin one) is closer to 200.00. I don't have either now. Had the Gunze kit but sold it when I got an offer I could not refuse. I will get another at some point.

I have the same kind of obsession but mine is for Corvette kits, nearly 400 different releases in 1/25 & 1/24 scale, over 200 different promos and about 50 Corvette kits in other scales. I think being crazy is fun.

Would be cool when they are all built one day in all the color combos, are there any a/c bristol kits>?

Ray, I feel your pain. I have two in college right now. I'll be done with that in 3 years. And then, instead of pushing a Corvette off a cliff every year I'm going drive one into my garage!
