Luckily there's at least one thing which is available in Finland, but not in USA. But of course, you have tons of different paint manufacturers and different paint brands there, what we don't have (or then we have to order those paints).
I'm planning to add some decals on the Cobra body, but I'm not sure if I can do it today or not.

Aren't those decals in the Essex Wire Cobra kit by Monogram ?
Yup. That would be the one. I searched high and low for the Monogram Essex Wire kit and found one on Ebay factory sealed for $5+Shipping just before the passing of Corrol Shelby. Good luck findinding this kit in the same condition now for that price.
So far, the results aren't too bad for a 20+ year decals.

The model picutred here was built in 2005. It is my version of the 1964 Targa Florio FIA 289 Cobra driven by Dan Gurney and Gerry Grant. The body is a combination of the 1/25 AMT kit and the Academy 289 [which is actually the AMT kit with a 427 body and headers]. I used parts from Replicas & Miniatures [wheels, Weber carbs], the great detail set from Acu-Stion [no longer available] and the beautiful UMI/Cartograph decals from Scale Coachworks.

Going to build it box stock, as I am trying to hone in my basic building skills such as seam lines, ejector pin moldings and a clean paint job.
For the motor, I am using the Metalizers line of aluminum plate and only making sure to polish some parts of it like the valve covers and the oil pan.
I don't have pics yet but will as soon as I get home.
